I'm the same way too. I want to learn another language as a hobby, thats why I'm continuing my spanish in college. Learning other languages is useful, especially if you planning to travel outside the US one day.

I speak 2 languages and can get my point across in 2 others....
So learn as many as you like. My post was for John anyway. He feels no need to learn more and I support him in his decision. He has no plans to travel to spanish speaking lands so he has no need other than for personal satsfaction.
I also enjoy learning languages. Spanish will not be one of them, Why? No not because of hispanic people. But because I have no desire to travel to spanish speaking countries. Been to spain. Loved it. I am just not going back.

English only for all ballots for voting for anything anywhere. In the la areas one time we had voting ballots in over 29 different languages. How wrong is that? Very damn wrong if you ask me. My wife happens to be persian and she speaks farsi, as i also speak farsi. How about we demand that farsi be spoken by all government employees so others who also speak that language don't have to worry about learning english? How about the many different dialects of chinese? Would that also be ok with you?
if you speak farsi..then maybe you should apply for a gov job, they are always looking for farsi speakers..but naturally you need to speak, write and read farsi perfectly...

there are places that are looking for people who are bilingual in japanese...chinese....german...and even russian...so

be my guess...keep knocking down spanish speakers..soon there wont be any jobs left for any of you people who are against others languages being learned and spoken!!

See, here's the thing.

None of us are against anyone learning another language. I myself, am continuing Spanish and beginning Lakota for my graduate degree.

Our problem is with those who come to this country and refuse to learn the de-facto lingua franca of the United States--English. It really doesn't matter if they are Spanish speakers, Mandrin Chinese speakers, or speakers of Abaga, from the Eastern Highlands Province of Papua, New Guinea. If you emigrate to another country, then it is your responsibility to assimilate into your host country.

Period.

Besides: there is no Hispanic race----------they can range from Nordic White to Black with everything else. Not all Latinos are Spanish speaking Indians.
Most Hispanics have significant Amerindian admixture and for most of them it is usually very visible in their appearence because most Hispanics have Amerindian influenced high cheekbones and Amerindian influenced almond shaped eyes. When somebody says that a person "looks Hispanic" that person almost always has those 2 physical features that I mentioned.

You are describing Mestizos.............

Argentina is 97% White-----------and, 100% Hispanic under US government guidelines along with both Spain and Uruguay as well.
