I was recently reading an article called Is America becoming a Hispanic country? over at the CNN Opinion website. Now, this article, written last March 2011, although published on a CNN website, a news source who I wouldn’t necessary call right-winged biased (and who I also wouldn’t take a bullet for being 100% truthful and without an agenda), was filled with these subtle and fear-mongering undertones. America is so scared of change. And I get it. There is a legitimate fear in losing certain aspect one’s identity and culture, and language is hands down a very important part of these two. But tell me, is the United States, taking into consideration what this country was built on and what to date continues to do, really one to have a right to stand on their high horse when it comes to imposing a language, culture, and identity? What country worldwide hasn’t gone through cultural, dialect, border, and identity evolution? I honestly don’t think this country will become 100% Hispanic speaking anytime soon, but when it does (because it will,and the over 50 million Hispanic speaking who currently live in the United States is proof of that), what’s so wrong with a multilingual, multicultural country? Historically speaking, this country has always been that, anyway. It’s just now that the numbers are big enough to attract attention.
