When you speak of Latinos are you speaking of the ones whose "natural" language is a language related to Latin?
If that is the then I may be considered a Latino because I am Portuguese.
Does this mean that I understand English because I understand Portuguese?

When you start nickpicking about how great the thickness of the accent is, that is very unfair. At least they LEARNED the language, weather they have a thick accent should not matter. Plueeeeze!
That's a very narrow minded view. I'd like to see you speak Russian or even Spanish, without a thick English accent! Its almost impossible.

I think speaking English is not enough. Accents can make it unintelligible.
In the UK for example in the west country they can speak at a slower rate with longer vowel sounds.

Well, sir, I am not a grammar Nazi on these forums, but...insist you properly edit your posts. Your writing is thick with anachronisms ("Many a time"), spelling mistakes ("shouldnt", "cant","its"),.......
OK, I'm not entirely serious, but do you see how you do the very thing you are upset with others for doing? A little humility might be in order!

let me elaborate, for i live a couple blocks away.
At Pat's, Geno's superior rival, the basic order is your cheese type followed by "wit" or "witout", depending whether or not you want onions.
Pat's is the local favorite, and Geno's hates it when people come up and order "Pat's" style, "whiz wit" and such.
He won't give Pat's advertising on tv, so it becomes an immigration argument in the current national political atmosphere.
Basically, the signs tellin Pat's customers to order plainly, not in Pat's code
Just steak politics

It seems that the Government is trying to make a subtle racist attack.. and spread it throughout the country by pointing the finger at the Mexicans.. theyre all illegal.. theyre the new enemy of the state.. To take focus off of other things.. and its wrong.. its plain racism.. pure and simple.. Leave them alone.. If they cant speak english and order something to eat.. then HELP THEM!.. They are doing the best with what they have available.. What ever happened to lending a helping hand.. To another human being..

I just think the sign could have been written in a nicer manner. Perhaps instead it could've just said "Please order in English."
