What do you say to those that don’t believe the American Dream was for them?

Charlamagne states that they have all the right to believe that because it’s true. The American dream was created for the White man to have and not any minority, however, Martin Luther King Jr did not march and get physically assaulted and killed for you to sit back and say that you can’t do it. The American dream might not be for minorities, but that’s no excuse not to create our own.
