Same people that claim to love freedom, don't like it when people don't think like them

Because they would be the main ones whining about how they only make minimum wage and that its not enough to live on and that they "deserve" $15.00 an hour.

I see that my original post was deleted. Apparantely, some of you have misunderstood its intention. It is not about racism, politics or multiple cultures in one country. In fact, diversity is good and beneficial to all of us. It allows us to learn and adapt more to one another.

To become a US Citizen, yes, there are some exceptions or bend to the rules to accomodate the elderly and the loyal immigrants. Take a look at the rules for the age and years living in the US in order to be exempt (Exceptions & Accommodations | USCIS). Look how long one must reside in the US or how old one must be in order to be exempt. Nevertheless, these are exceptions only. The main language that it requires to pass the main test is still English for those that aren't exempt.

When it comes to speaking in many languages, it's very simple. One tongue (language) = unity = one nation. Multiple tongues = disunity = multiple nations.

Those of you that have read or have knowledge of the Bible, a great example of this was the story told in the book of Genesis, the Tower of Babel.

This has nothing to do with "freedom of speech", the way our forefathers intended it for when the US Constitution was written. Within our own family and friends, we can speak in our native language as freely as we'd like. However, when it's dealing with businesses, politics and education within 1 country, we should speak in 1 tongue because that's what build up our society and in turn, our nation. It's reasonable to believe that our forefathers didn't intend to divide the nation.

How can we be of help to build a strong nation if we all speak in different tongues?

I'm a foreigner at birth, my family and I chose to reside in the US where English is the main spoken language. We simply accepted it in order to blend in with the community and not separating ourselves from the people we live within.

Again, my message was simply to try to encourage the OP to live among the community instead of separating him/her/them/self from it. It is related to the subject title of this thread. Otherwise, most comments in this thread should be deleted as well.

I don't know about everybody else.... but that doesn't offend me or anything else similar.
I'd gladly help anybody asking anything like that, because usually it means that they are gonna live really far from me.

Aldine is pretty close. It's only 3% white and most blacks live west of I-45 and north of the Beltway. If you drive down Airline on the weekends near Gulf Bank it is literally like being in Mexico. Aldine ISD has done well teaching the children English, but don't expect much English from the adults over here.

The migration started in the late 80s as residents continued to move to mainly to Spring, Klein and Tomball. By the early 2000s Hispanics became the majority. Traffic is insane over there!

Yes, the 77037 area was shocking culturally at first, and I live and grew up in 77087 which is predominately a hispanic area. 59 north and Aldine Mail heading west is all hispanic as stated too. If Spanish is your primary and only language, for the most part you will not have any trouble communitcating, especially in the areas mentioned above.
