Yes, I really do

In my dreams I always find myself thinking about how beautiful the classic black american music is. I remember the first time I watched Back To The Future trilogy with my father and then I thought how much I wish to be McFly in the 80's America. Listening to the Michael Jackson Albuns, driving my own V8 muscle car and kissing a beautiful blonde girlfriend.

I dream about american high school and the first experience with USA Army...

I know that all those things are mental exaggerations about America. There are many problemas like crimes and poverty. But man!!! Can you imagine a perfect teenage life like that???

America is pretty nice, but it also has some pretty awful stuff too. It really depends on the state, too.

And you can get all that stuff in other countries.

If you are white yeah you probably would have a good time being black native brown asian or even if you have an accent you will most likely experience some form of racism which a lot of people still refuse to accept it that it exists. Just like in Europe

Meh, it's everywhere.

At least in the US there is a dialogue about it. Go try being white or dark-skinned in Japan.

Basically, you wish you were born as a white privileged American.

@johnd13:

All American 80's movies show a dreaming american way of life and this is beautiful...

I'm remembering of watching ''Home Alone'' with Macaulay Caulkin in that large house with a bunch of children. A good exemple of what a middle class dream use to be, but I know that Chicago has many social problems... I don't think that a middle class family in Chicago, lives like that today... Not to mention being black and segregated...

Personally I’m quite satisfied with having been born here in Canada. Got a really good mix of city and bush wilderness along with some very nice lakes. It’s great for fishing and hunting. Also got a pretty good balance of the four seasons. I also feel like I lived in a fantastic period of time having been born in 1971. The ‘70’s, ‘80’s, and ‘90’s were some excellent times for music, movies, tv, and video games in my opinion.

I’m very happy I don’t live in the land of fast food diets and gross obesity. Of course the movies will always project a likeable image of American life, but it is unrealistic for most living there, especially anyone that is a visible minority.

Aside from the lack of universal Healthcare and better support for education, it's a good area to live.

It is equally crude to assume all Americans are obese and live on fast food diets, as much as it is to assume Americans all look the way they do in the movies.

I felt the same way when I was 8-10 but once you get to meet and make friends from there, you'll know how either, you have it better from wherever you are or it's a dream for them as much as it is for you. What you're saying sounds a lot like a stereotypical middle-class/upper-class American families you see in the movies.

The rest is basic teenage stuff though, who else doesn't want a hot high school sweetheart!

birth is your first game of chance.

you have about a 2.7% chance of being born in the US


in any case, it's not like people can't move to different countries

None of that stuff really applies to the US anymore OP. You probably won't be able to buy that car or house, especially as a recent immigrant, and you'll probably not even be able to work given how bad the virus is right now.

@joaopedro7: Yeah I feel you, I'm mixed and non-American but I wish I was American mainly bc you have more freedom to do and be who you want there (eg. non-binary, trans, gay, etc.) and you'd have people to somewhat accept you or support you, but in Asia, it's hard to find open-minded people often at least in my country and it's frustrating. I also have a bunch of American/Canadian friends and I feel more connected to them than people I know IRL. I plan on moving there after a year and a half for uni so that's nice
