We all know this is really this ,
because you seek to discredit the Latino community, but it's futile and fruitless. The Latino community is definitely legitimate, and is growing in influence as part of our country. Despite the threads on this forum.
I call BS on that: as the number of illegal aliens deported grows----------the power of the Spanish language is fading here in the USA.

Face reality: Spanish is not an important language outside of either Spain or Latin America-------------English is the world over.

Again, you're focusing on illegal aliens. Can't make the distinction?
Call BS all you want, it's reality. One you seem to have a problem with.

And yes, Spanish is an important world language. Latin America is a large area that people all over the world do business in. Including the United States.

Your bias against Latinos means nothing.

Name one G-8 nation where the official language is Spanish. Also the country with the largest economy in Latin America is Brazil and they speak Portuguese.

I'm sure you won't be holding your breath waiting for a legitimate answer. It's wishful thinking and another figment of their illegal alien imaginations.

I am prejudiced against illegal aliens----------irrespective of race/ethnicity.

And this somehow proves that a lot of countries including the United States aren't doing business in Latin America?

Ha,Ha,Ha.. in fact all major networks are in financial trouble in these hard times, actualy the Spanish networks financial problems are small compared to the english language networks, for example CBS is over 50 billion in the red.
Also is interesting you did not mention the spanish audiences, which keep growig exponentially, for your info. I know lots of kids of Spanish ancestry
that did not know much Spanish, and with the help of the Spanish networks they are fluen in Spanish, sorry intolerant radicals

True. My mother who grew up speaking Spanish at home(and English at school and with children her age) eventually forgot much of her Spanish when she was in her 20s.
She started watching novelas and reading a lot of Spanish language magazines, and it really helped her brush up on it to the point where she was fluent again.
For a lot of people with a VERY basic grip on spanish, Spanish media is a good way to pick it up.

English media is also what's helping a lot of Mexican children moving to the US at a young age pick up English.
