In the poem "Dream Deferred" by Langston Hughes, what does the term "dream deferred" mean?
Also, in the US, what are some groups that have been exposed to predjudice?
I have some: African Americans, immigrants
Can anyone think of any others

Any dream that people put off achieving is a dream deferred. Hughes isn't specific, but the deferred dream could refer to equality among the races.

In addition to African-Americans and immigrants, the following often have been victims of prejudice: gays and lesbians, obese people, physically ugly people, laborers, homeless people, and women.

thank you!

The Irish and Germans have been objects of prejudice at different times and in certain places; also the Chinese and Japanese, especially during/after the California Gold Rush and WWII.
