Before everyone comes down on me, if you think about it Americans are English speakers, and we grow up in an English only public school system. So we are natve English speakers through lineage, or birth to an American. My thing is bilingual jobs are only going to go to hispanics who for the most part should know English.

The point I am getting at its racist to have bilingual Hispanic only jobs.

Can't most of agree?

Language isn't race and your English is horrendous.

Commerce in the Western Hemisphere requires English and Spanish speakers. If the Spanish speakers can learn English, then the English speakers can learn Spanish and compete for those jobs. Whiners step aside for the doers.

I don't know about racist but it is discrimination. A lot of this bi-lingual requirement is due to illegal immigration from south of our border and Hispanic citizens who want to feel all warm and fuzzy by being pandered to in Spanish even though they know English. I agree, we are an English speaking country and native English speakers should not be discriminated against in hiring practices in their own country.

Yes of course it is the height of racism for a company to require employees have the ability to communicate with its customers.

... it must be National Idiotic Thread Year.

Communicate with whom? Illegal aliens or bi-lingual citizens who know English? Why shoud native English speakers be discriminated against due to the above when we are an English speaking nation?

That is a job skill.

My job requires one to be intelligent. You wouldn't qualify. That doesn't make it racist.

What?!? Bilingual implies, in this context, that they do speak English and Spanish.
