Guess what! You are now a racist and hate latinos. At least that's what they told me I was when I said English should continue to be the language of America.

Boy, the definition of a lot of words have changed dramatically since I was a kid, racism especially.

Oh yeah, and having a 'gay old time' means something different now too :)

To say English should continue to be the language of America is one thing. I'm saying something slightly different.

I'm saying English is the language of America, so the best advice is to learn it and use it well.

Language is a vehicle. In America, if you want to spend the day in that shining city on the hill, you'd better take the vehicle called English. No other vehicle gets you there before sunset.

Too late! You said it! Racist :)
