I too have Native Americn ancestory and our tribe was almost completely wiped out, not by the white men, but by another tribe!
I think its funny that when you speak from your (alleged) native-american pov, you use the term "white men".
like in a cheap western movie. "white men heapum bad"
is it trendy to have native-american blood? I want some!
I'm married to a portaguese man with that nice year 'round tan. Color is just color. No I do not
Well that's just racist and ignorant.
I'll just assume every time you talk about black folk you say "African Americans" or "People of African Descent."edit on 8-12-2012 by HairlessApe because: (no reason given)
This is one of those things that bugs me. If you move to China you don't just start speaking English to everyone and expect them to conform. You need to learn the language of your new host country.

Also the people suck at speaking English.
I can tell you are right, I would even say I haven't heard WELL spoken English in a while, and I have a British friend who is a language mayor and refuses to talk to common people anymore... I just tell him he's just a grumpy old man.

I've never read one of these threads about the language being spoken as
it only pops up when the language in question is spanish
and that's because of the stereo type of the mexican illegal immigrant sucking up taxpayar benefits but not paying taxes

because they learned English and spoke English.
We were never forced to dial 1 for our own language because of any others but the Spanish speaking population.
We were never required to be bilingual and speak any other language in order to get a job in many areas, but the Spanish language. Signs everywhere are in English and Spanish in many areas across the USA.
With over 300 languages spoken here, it is the Spanish speakers who are catered to and who have changed things, not the Italians or French or German or any other language.

Yep and 299 languages don't lie South of us Like Mexico, Central and South America.
Why do I care about that? I simply don't...
Also shame on you for the Eagle, Globe and Anchor...and spewing your filth.
Nothing but opinion. There are many who don't speak English.
NObody is forcing you to dial 1. Your free to hang up at anytime if you don't like the way businesses are conducting their business
Bla, bla bla...poor you. When are you going to realize that it is all a business decision? For the most part, Spanish people aren't the ones doing the hiring or hanging the signs.

All of this talk of English only is hilarious to me. Shows that people are paranoid because the demographics are changing.

I have a very substantial Eastern Indian population here, and Asian. There are enough Asians that several shopping strips have been put up.
Not once, have I ever needed to find an Asian or indian translator.
That is why the Latins get ostracized.
