A couple questions on the subject:
1) Where do your decendents come from? Unless they are American Indian, they aren't from here. This basically means that when they did come over here, they must have been speaking an alternate language, unless of course they came from another english speaking country.
2) You state that you don't speak another language because you are "here". Could that be because you know no other language and what your saying is that, unless people only speak english, they deserve and ass kicking? Now refer back to question one.
3) So if your Indian, Chinese, Arabic, Polish, Russian, Italian, Spanish, whatever it may be... your telling us that we should only speak english when we're in public? Last I checked, the American way is freedom of speech and that means in any language. Also, should they stop teaching foreign languages in schools as well then?
I understand your frustration and don't support what that guy had done, but don't let that close your eyes to the rest of the world and hold a prejudice against people of different decent.
