“A “Dream” Deferred: An Exploration of The Scarlet Title “Undocumented” By, Amber Floyd
The title “A Dream Deferred” indicates another sad story. Knowing someone has had their dream denied upsets me. In Amber Floyd’s essay “A Dream Deferred”, she talks about how her boyfriend, and their families struggle as being undocumented. People who are undocumented generally have less rights than an American citizen or someone with papers. Amber Floyd essay “A Dream Defferd”, she goes on about how her boyfriends sister was such a intelligent girl; yet there was a huge barrier that was holding her back from her dream’s; which is paying for college, “Brigitte was the valedictorian of her high school class but was unsure as to how she would be able to pay for college due to her lack of citizenship”(Floyd, 2015, p. 182). This quote is a great example of what people with no citizens face. Even if you’ve lived an America for a long amount of time, and followed all the laws like every other American, the govt. still made it difficult for immigrants (especially those of colors) to obtain papers.
