I hope you're old man, because you have some long, lonely days ahead of you. Better not lose your internet connection, you'll need your internet friends here to assuage your fears and feed your irrational hatred.
Stick your race card back in your wallet! An English speaking American has every right to expect intercom ads to at least be in English also. I noticed you wouldn't address what I said but went off on a tirade instead of accusing me of hate and irrational fears when there is no truth to that whatsoever. You're the typical pro-illegal that can't debate without insults and that is why I rarely reply to you anymore.

I think it is because I would think that most Hispanic-Americans wouldn't be drop outs but more than likely the illegal kind. I could be wrong, however. If it is citizen Hispanics then that is even more alarming, don't you think? There have been stats in here posted as to what group have the highest drop out rates. It was "Hispanics" by far. You figure out then how many of them are illegal aliens.

A new report show Latinos tend to be slow to mesh with the Anglo-centric mainstream U.S. culture.

Look, the article indicates assimilation is happening, just not as rapidly as needed. Call me the "not pollyanna."

Lol. So we should all be scared because of a description for the link to the actual news story?

By slow they mean: (actually from the article)

Quote:
The report by the Migration Policy Institute said the nation's Latinos generally are having a tougher time when compared to Asian, black and non-Hispanic white immigrants.
Now, I acknowledge that they may be assimilating slower than current Asian, blacks, and non-Hispanic whites. It isn't a problem though as I quoted already and I guess will quote again.

Quote:
But as a whole, the report says fears are unfounded that the nation's estimated 38 million immigrants, legal and illegal, are not being integrated into American life.
...
In fact, the report says there is evidence that today's immigrants are learning English faster than the last wave of people entering the U.S. at the start of the 20th century.

Yeah, there's no truth to that like those immigrants aren't assimilating.

Yeah, they are just acknowledging their heritage right?

Also, they used English on those signs so there were no demands to know Spanish and no attempt to rape our culture. Chicagonut still mad though.....

Comprehension skills getting in your way again or did you just not read the link?

Well, there is proof in your posting patterns and unsubstantiated fears which equivocate to irrational. Now, whether you actually believe what you post could be up for debate. But we know your answer to that: mmpphh! mmp! mmphhphh!
