Well ofcourse you miami is a lab expieriement, thier are going to be alot of unique problems, but as spanish taking over i see it totaly exaggerated. First of all latins assimilate at a fast rate. Lol i remember geraldo having a special on that. it was very interesting. Cmon all latinos know that by the 2nd generation kids dont even speak spanish anymore. lol I have no problems against cixel. His persistent. Gotta respect that. lol the man dont quit. Cant hate him for that. I just get madd when people take the bashing to an extreme un called for level. In 100 years when supposebly hispanics will outnumber white people i bet nobody is even going to notice. Sure the people will be a little tanner but its all going to be the same BS. thats what makes this country so great. lol Eveybody wants to join the club. Miami is the new york of the 21rst century. I cant wait untill im turning 130 years old in my fliying car saying i told you so to all the people who thought that hispanics were going to be the downfall of the US.

Probably more South Americans given the problems in that region currently. The big variables, in my view, are the nature-related ones, since the area is so fragile ecologically. The Big Three: Will we run out of water? Global warming's impact? Hit directly by a major hurricane? There was just an article in the Herald recently about us being "overdue" for a major storm, so we'll see...

Nice analysis.

This is America, I shouldn't be told to learn Spanish in America. I am a citizen of another country and when I go there, I don't epect the people behind the counter to speak English.

If you visit a touristic region anywhere in the world, most people behind the counter in nice places speak English. English/Spanish/1 or 2 more languages. Spanish is needed in Southern Florida, the administrative capital of Latin America under U.S administration. Spanish is required by employers. Employers require the language they like from their employees (Free market economy).

Nobody will force you to learn Spanish, and nobody will force any Hispanic to learn English. BUT ABOVE ALL, NO EMPLOYER WILL BE FORCED TO HIRE YOU IF YOU DON'T SPEAK SPANISH/ENGLISH.
