Should We Continue The Previous Generation’s Ways?

More and more, Hispanics come to the eatery where I work. There have always been Hispanics and I don’t have any problem with that.

The thing I do have a problem with is that lately, the new Hispanics who come in cannot speak hardly any English. They either point to what they want or I have to get someone who speaks Spanish to help with the order.

Sometimes an Hispanic customer will say to me, “You need to learn to speak Spanish!”

Now, it is true that most Americans can only speak English instead of several languages like a lot of Europeans. And we are made to feel inferior because of that fact when truly, it doesn’t make any difference at all and any person who wants to act superior because they can speak 3 languages in addition to their native language, has a personality disorder.

I do want to learn other languages, however, and some of the languages I am interested in are German, Japanese, and perhaps Russian. Most people say “Oh you have to learn to speak Spanish because, you know….”, blah blah blah. Well I don’t want to learn to speak Spanish. I do not like that language, just like I don’t care for the French language.

Further and more importantly, can I say to one of the Hispanics who demands that I learn Spanish, can I say to them, “No. YOU need to learn English!”

Well, if we follow in the footsteps of the previous generation, we wouldn’t be able to say that. We would lower our heads in shame and shuffle off to get the customer’s food and feel guilty for the rest of the week for not being able to speak a language which is not native to our country.

And where has that timidity gotten us in this country? You see, being kind does not mean to be stupid. Being respectful does not mean to disrespect yourself.

Americans have become so pathetic that their soldiers are sent to a hot Ebola zone and everyone thinks it’s fine. If they didn’t think it was fine, they would do something about it. After all, how many morons were in the streets of NYC, filling them with litter and worshiping the likes of Leo Gore, who are total hypocrites.

If our generation acts like the previous generation, I suppose it won’t be long before America as our parents knew it will be a thing of the past.

    I speak a little French and Spanish, which I use if I go to those countries, and I believe that if people come to MY country to live they should learn to speak MY language and so it should be in America too.
