If I go to France, I need to learn some French to at least get me by..........


Ugh I'm so annoyed cause that is 10 minutes of my life I will never get back!

I seriously felt like Chris Tucker.....all I kept saying was "do u understand the words that r coming out of my mouth?"

I cna understand the frustrations to a minor degree having people who don't speak your language, but the USA is very multicultural as you know, not everyone is gonna speak English considering the nation in its early days with so many different ethnicities emigrating into the USA.

By all rights you should be speaking Swahili or something like that anyway, Musungu:)

No, I see your point, I just think you're over reacting. I too live in a very multi cultural city and yeah it is annoying sometimes but I don't let it stress me out.

You felt the need to make a thread to vent your frustration but it's no big deal, it's just part of the charm of livin in a big city.

I have seen some fucked up sides of discrimination since I was a small child.Shit that was so petty but at the same time , so real.

My mom pretty much made her side of the Family completely disown her due to my birth.She had it GOOD too.REAL GOOD. I come from an important family but they are super pissed that ...you know.

I've seen fire and rain though.




all in all though I can't complain. I needed the struggle. I mean , what if I had been born all white. Then I would just be another drop in the bucket. I fell outside the bucket.so , in a way , I am free.

Lol @ this thread.

The fact is, English is the global lingua franca and it's pretty rich for a native English speaker to say anything about immigrants not speaking the language. You'll probably find a lot of migrants speak more than one language anyway.

The France example is an interesting one because many English speakers go to Europe with an expectation that the vast majority of people will speak English.

Anyway, I'm getting sidetracked from what I wanted to say. The point is, that in countries with English as the main language, there is very little effort made by people to learn another language compared to Europe where it is a pivotal part of education, yet we are so often critical of people that don't speak it.

I agree. My rant (I guess) is that here in America, the main language is English. That is what we r taught in schools here. My whole thing is that if I go to another country regardless of what the country it is, and I opened a business, then I would attempt to learn the language regardless if some folks there speak English. Why? B/c I am going to be living there and making my living..........

Now NY is full of stores owned my immigrants but alot of them have learned English. It may not be the best when they speak it, but at least they put the effort in and I respect them for that.

I agree that Americas have this attitude that everyone should speak English.......I feel that way when I am in America! Why? B/c again that is what we r taught here as the main language. But I have been to a few different places, and I have at least tried to learn some of the language. Walking around like an idiot with a book in my hand........the point is I try. I don't expect someone in another country to speak English. If they do, great but I don't expect it.

i almost had to flip on this chick i was messin with one time we went to the mall..there was like a mexican family walkin around speakin spanish n she was like "if youre in america, speak english" (as a spanish speaking "immigrant" of sorts, i was kinda pissed) and i tried tellin her, calmly, that "just because they're in america, does not mean they can't speak their own language here, especially among their own family, even if they're in public" and then she went on like "well, if they're gonna be here, they're in an american mall with american people, so they should be as american as they can and fit in and if they can't, they should go back to where they're from"

i didnt say nothin after that...i never told her i spoke spanish or that i was from somewhere else or that my mom is here on a green card (i look like a skinny version of my dad for the most part, who's white american) just hit it a few more times n never called the bitch back

America is awesome and the whole world should outlaw every other faggy language with their gay-ass accent marks and tongue clicks and weird sounds and stuff, even the queer bitch version they speak in england, and then we could give all those weird foreigners 2 weeks to learn English, and if they dont then we could blow them up with big, throbbing, penis-shaped american missiles.
