My Filipino right-wing bud goes ballistic (when asked if he spoke Spanish):)

I forgot to mention...English is the second official language in the Philippines, but out here in the provinces, there are many that do not speak it.

I sell ice, and many fishermen seem to know very little English, but all younger people are OK in English.

Or you could watch William Shatner in Incubus, filmed entirely in Esperanto.

I’m Puerto Rican by birth. Spanish IS my first language.

I still resent it when people presume I want someone to speak to me in Spanish here in the US.

If I want to speak Spanish, I call my family. I’m in the US, I speak English in the US.

She asked a couple of Hmong who were in line if they spoke Spanish and they became indignant and told here they were Asian.

So, Asians aren't able to have Spanish as an auxiliary language? Especially those who live in a heavily Spanish speaking area?

Not excusing the Mexican for not speaking English in the U.S., which is an egregious problem that two or three generations of "bilingual education" has only exacerbated, rather than solved.

A decade ago Critics say 'Clones' has racial stereotypes when the Detroit News assembles a panel of diversity whingers, of which the Mehicano member declared "He looked totally Latino"

Apart from the fact that the actor, Temuera Morrison, is recognisably Maori, his character used his normal New Zealand accent (not one of the world's nondescript accent)

It’s been a lot of years since I have been in the PI. Tagalog maledictions just haven’t been of much use: I don’t remember. I only remember the word for horse because of Kabayo Riding Stables in Cubi Point.

It's been festering on him that the mexicans start speaking to him in Spanish when Filipinos do NOT speak Spanish. A couple of Filipinos also have the same beef..that they think mexicans own L.A.

And you now know why Manny Paquiao versus Juan Manuel Marquez (I, II, and III) has earned a cool $150 million.
