ITA. My son has a great deal in common with your daughter. I love the sound of french, it is such a beautiful language. (Patient soul that she is) one of my Pakistani neighbors is working (really hard) to help me learn Urdu.

I find most of your posts trollish, so your point is what? Because I hate the sound of spanish and am not afraid to publicly admit it makes me a troll?

Love me or hate me, sorry, I'm not a descendant of the PC generation.

This I will say: 'Ebonics' is basically Cockney from 16th Century England with some (probable) west African influences. Most of the Black slaves came from either Nigeria or Ghana. So; we can blame Ebonics on us White people

As for Spanish: the cold reality is that it is not widely spoken outside of Spain and most of Latin America whereas English is the lingua franca of the world.

Thank you AB. We both know that the agenda of those whose native language is spanish (and the corporate masters) is to give it credibility by forcing it to play a major part in the dynamics of American culture. That way it will make it as universally acceptable as English and the illiterate millions primarily from SOB won't have to worry about learning English.

Excellent post, hope I can finally rep you!

ETA: Sorry I can't rep you, gotta spread the love!

Karfar, I hate to say it. But Dubs is right on the dot. I'm with her on this. Spanish is an option now, and I will do EVERYTHING, on my part, to make sure that it always remains an "OPTION"..and nothing more than that. The last time I checked...the people who fought for this country and established spoke english. NOT SPANISH.
