Why are Mexican immigrants always picked on for not speaking English?

Guess what, we are here for opportunity. My people will learn eventually. My parents learned in time when they came to the U.S and they are now succesfull.

There are other spanish speaking Latinos to worry about. Also, check out the Spaniards. They’re white and they speak Spanish. In fact, because of their conquests years ago in Latin America, Mexicans speak spanish because their ancestors were forced to learn by the Spaniards. The Spaniards were the first Spanish speakers just like the British are the first English speakers.

By the way, I’m not racist. In fact, I hope to visit Spain someday as well as Japan.

Also, not all Mexicans are brown. I’m white skinned. A lot of people have thought that I’m not Mexican until I start talking like one.

By the way, I learned in James Clavell’s Shogun that language is the key to survival in any country.



  1. It’s because most Mexicans don’t WANT to learn English. My mother had a Mexican friend who knew very little English and actually told her this, "Why should WE learn English? You should learn Spanish!" That’s disgusting. My parents had to come here and learn English as did many other LEGAL immigrants. Even though they still have an accent, they actually got somewhere in life and learned the language. My father’s a little worse at it because of his stroke, but that’s a different story.

    This isn’t about the colour of your skin, it’s about the values that should be held. If you go to a country where the majority speaks a certain language, you should learn it as well. No one is exempt.
