I think many of the themes are certainly relevant. The disillusion of the American dream is certainly one theme that still resonates today. This pursuit of the American Dream, however, is not without conflict. Troy cannot envision a generation doing more than his own accomplished. He cannot imagine his son achieving an even greater dream, and he cannot imagine a life unburdened by responsibility to family. In this way, Troy remains chained to his expectations of what a man can accomplish in the world. This is the case for many families of color in the United States today. People who feel they cannot get ahead, in part, because of racism and lack of opportunity.
