How do you know that people who don't speak English YET aren't trying to learn? This kind of racism really sticks in my craw.
I was referring to the people who won't make an effort to try - not to those who ARE trying. And believe me, when you work in retail and w/ the public, you begin to learn after awhile just who those people are if you pay attention. When I worked at a register, the same people who just two minutes ago claimed that they didn't understand you, turn around and begin to walk away, and then start speaking English to someone else. It's people like that who irk me - not the honest ones who really don't understand....
I am not a racist, and have nothing against anyone who is not the same nationality: I have many friends who are from a different culture or country, and I think they are fine people and I admire them - and none of them consider me a "racist." I think that if I were a racist, none of them would want to associate w/ me.
As I've already said, I have no problem w/ ANYONE who comes to our country and who wants a better way of life for themselves & their families, and who are honest about it. What I DO have a problem w/ is w/ those who are dishonest and won't even try, and expect everything to be handed to them on a silver platter - and that includes Americans who live off the system. There are bad apples in every bunch...
