Language segregation? That is reprehensible.

Someone NEEDS to pass an amendment making English our country's official language.

In this place, Anglos go there and Hispanics go there. Great concept, right?

walmart follows the money.

as long as they still have english speaking help, then im fine.

who cares if they have other speakers.

if the focus is the hispanic dollar, then let them market it how they choose.

no problem here.

BUT, i dont particulalry like walmart. its a big fish gobbling up little fish. once one of those opens up they take business from the local mom and pops (which im sure are already operating bilingually. shoot even the koreans and arabs at the liquour stores by my house speak spanish.)

but this is about bilingualism. and hispanics. not immigration.

why does anything in spanish always have to be about illegals or "immigration"?

And we as Americans have the right to criticize them.

The store might attract a lot of illegals (both employees and customers). If it does open, ICE should setup up sting operations.

The more the multiculturalists howl: the more the effort to mandate English as our official tongue.

Side note here: according to Thomas Sowell; the Black sociologist, 'Ebonics' is actually a variation of 16th century White Cockney English.
