The other day I was leaving work (I work at a grocery store) and there was a group of Latinas in front of me. It looked like three generations, a grandma, a mom and two daughters. They were speaking in their native tongue. A form of Spanish. Yes I know that there are different variations due to the fact that there are different countries south of the border. So no I do not label them all Mexican. Anyway, as they were walking to their car I heard a white lady with her young and impressionable daughter, say that she feels they should be speaking English they are in America.
First of all I would like to remind most of you that in my part of the country, it was all natives and Hispanics before the white man came along. Second this country used to be called the melting pot because it was filled with all kinds of people. Third and most important I would have loved to ask this female type person (she doesn’t deserve to be called a lady) if those people were speaking German, Russian, or some form of Asian language, would she be so quick to criticize or is she just afraid of the latin/hispanic community.
