Why?

Simple answer because it would just make too much sense for them to speak english which last time I checked is part of the citizenship test. HMM shocker this is bull next lets get morgan freeman to start black only stores. Why not makes sense right.

I would not look at it that way. Any individual is free to practice their own religion, and do what they want, in any language. I think that is called Freedom, correct me if I am wrong. Also, you can live and work in the United States without being a citizen last time I checked. Saying that this is a bad idea just because "They should learn English" seems a tad ignorant to me. While I do agree, you should learn the language of where you live, it's just not that simple for most people.

Here is some truth for you, ready for this? Most people don't like truth. Most immigrants do learn English, ...with the exception of one group, ...here's the truth, sure you can handle it? Hispanics.

I live in New Britain Connecticut, there are both a community of Polish, and Russian people in the town I live in, and guess what they speak English.

I don't speak from what you call "ignorance", I speak about facts. Only one group I see that puts no effort into learning English.

Hahahahahahahahaha. OMG hahahahahahhahahahahhaha.

you win the internet.

The fact is you cant generalize an ethnicity that is about the most close minded response I have ever read. What about asians? What about Germans, Russians, Armenians? I mean I can go on and on here in California the amount of hispanic people obviously overshadow the diversity of the many type of immigrants that actually live in this state alone. The want to learn English is there in all of them I see it every day. The fact is that English isnt exactly an easy language to learn, many face money, time, and even learning challenges. As long as they try I am satisfied and I see it even though their English may be broken or very poor there is an attempt.

Even wit...

I agree with everything you said except: How is it not your own fault if you don't master your own language? It is definately 100% your own fault if you don't know how to speak your native tongue properly. There are so many, and free ways to brush up grammar and english skills these days, not to mention if it is your native tongue, it means you are born in the region where that is what is primarily spoken


- so please, explain to me, how is it not your own fault if you don't learn to speak your own native language?

I agree with you. I work in a store that sells phones (Boost Mobile included) that has a large amount of spanish speaking customers. They come into my store and try to get serviced knowing the english words: phone, yes, no, money; and expect me to be able to help them out. Most of them get angry at me and come back later with other people who speak better english and tell me that I messed up and did something wrong. They need to learn how to speak English. This is 'Merica. I guess these new stores will be good for spanish speaking people, but most of them are not going to be able to get a contract. To what you were saying about no effort to learn: i've had some of the same customers for three years that have not improved or learned english i...

I don't understand why people are always so quick to call people ignorant.

People get impressions from reality, impressions from behavior, people don't just make up how they feel, impressions come from somewhere.

My impressions don't come from "ignorance", they come from reality, reality tells me the only immigrants who come to the U.S. that don't speak English are hispanics.

I've even come across middle easterners, who speak English.

I think using the word "ignorant" is just an excuse to avoid the facts, and realities of the world.

No, it is ignorance, because you are basing your opinions about another "ethnic" group on the interactions betwen you and the people where YOU live.

That does not make it a "reality".

I live in Texas, and guess what?

There are so-called "Hispanics" that speak English and some that do not.

There are some Asians that speak English and some that do not.

The difference? I do not generalize other "ethnic" groups based on those interactions.

Morgan Freeman is one of the most un-racial blacks in America, how bout Chris Rock, he's very racial.

My thoughts as well. Morgan Freeman is a legit man. Chris Rock or Jamie Foxx. Those two would be perfect.
