"Egocentric"? Really? No, you have it all backwards and upside-down, as usual. It is Hispanics that are egocentric, in demanding that everyone
cater to them. It is Hispanics that come here, more often illegally than legally, and demand that the entire country adapt their language, their
customs, their FLAGS. It is Hispanics that don't want U.S. citizenship, which would require them to learn English
). There are exceptions to this, of course. I know a very
sweet lady that was born in Puerto Rico, who became a citizen. She speaks flawless English, she is immensely patriotic, and she loves being an
American citizen. There are more like her, but MOST Hispanics that come here are different. They celebrate Mexican holidays, and even prevent
American students from displaying ANY American flags, on AMERICAN soil, on their Cinco de Mayo holidays. They march in demonstrations, shouting that
this is part of Mexico, waving Mexican flags, tromping on and burning American flags, wearing masks like criminals, and speaking all of that in
Spanish. They threaten non-Hispanics that show up at any such demonstrations (I have seen a LOT of videos of that). They do NOT WANT to be U.S.
citizens; they want to make the U.S. part of Mexico. THAT is why they refuse to learn the language, push their customs, break our laws (and being
here illegally makes one a criminal....duh), and make no effort at all to be a real part of the country they chose to live in. No other group of
immigrants acts this way. Not one.
As for me, I have LIVED IN another country, and traveled to several others. I did make an effort to learn some of the local language, even though we
were only there for three years, so that I could manage. Not I, nor anyone I knew, was ever offended that some did not speak English. None of us
expected to shop in local stores and have labels printed half in English for us. To do so would have been rude. You know, like we see in this
