No Spanish. (why weren’t there other languages there….We have immigrants from everywhere). Not anymore. English only.
As I said already….outfuckinstanding.
I am the son of immigrants. Mexico is in my heritage. My parents and their parents are proud immigrants…..Part of the “Melting Pot”.
When I was in high school, I washed dishes for an italian man in his restaurant after school. He didn’t speak great english,…in fact, he had a really strong italian accent. So did his wife. BUT HE (and she) SPOKE ENGLISH. His kids were as american as any other kids in the town..(Except they spoke Italian as well as english). He told me “When you make another country your home, you should damn well learn the language of your new home….or you are just a visitor”.
Phillipo was always gonna consider Palermo his first home….But The US was his adopted home. He was an immigrant…He assimilated. He wasn’t a citizen, but he was proud of his green card.
He wasn’t a visitor nor an invader, unlike some other folks here now……
