Oh please. He throws that word out like he was taught and really has no idea what it really means anymore. He can't stand the fact that Mexico is more racist and bigoted than our country could ever be.

"At least we don't have to hear Spanish!" Is a degrading comment.

This I will say: if my premonition is indeed correct; English will soon be the language of choice SOB if Mexico shatters courtesy of a civil war especially with 10+ million illegals including their Anchor Babies returning home.

I don't think it will be a civil war, I think it will be a war of Druglords v. Mexico.

Not degrading at all--------I was uber pissed when a bunch of Hungarians started jabbering in their language in my presence. All of 'em spoke English and knew that I do not speak Hungarian-------right here in Arizona at a social function at my church.

I am of 1/2 Hungarian heritage.

Part of why those foreigners may have copped that attitude towards me is that the brother of a Hungarian revolutionary is allegedly my direct male ancestor. Think of a male 'Anglo' American who does not speak Spanish yet is the descendent of, say Santa Anna's brother.

Here's what you can do: put the offending poster on 'ignore' status.
