Ok, so some people want a "hot topic"
Here it is.
I am NOT anti-Hispanic.
I don't think anybody would disagree with the fact that speaking more than one language is more intelligent. However I speak, read and write (a little) German. I can comunicate in German roughly. If Latin was readily taught I would learn it. I do not like being pushed to learn Spanish or my daughter either. For Christs-sake I can only understand half of my daughters cartoons anymore. Learning a second language is a good thing but it should be a choice. Unfortunately this Spanish push has come from businesse catering to immigrants and by doing this they open up there business to a wider group of people. On the other hand, it makes it too easy for non-English speaking Americans to not learn English which I think is a load of B.S. I know many other countries force English learning as well as native tongue but I do not understand or support that either. Conversely I would not travel to Mexico because quite frankly I can't say anything except numbers up to 10. While I'm sure they speak English at resorts this is non-sense too. If you move to another country...........learn the language. I do think that Americans outta learn a native language as well before moving even if English is accepted there.
