I am being fairly serious about learning Spanish, which is very useful. It's such a shame that we aren't bilingual in Spanish like the Norwegians or Swedes are bilingual in English.
Being involved with some charity work with new Latin immigrants, I have learned a few things.
Latinos love Americans because our culture is so strong -- Hollywood, music, consumerism, brands, etc... Latinos love American food, such as all the packaged food from Frito Lay, sodas, hot dogs, McDonalds, chicken nuggets, comfort food such as mash potatoes, mac and cheese, etc.. I have seen people eat that food and you can tell they really enjoy it -- so delicious!
Latinos love Americans things such as Tide laundry detergent, downy fabric softener. American SUVs. The Chevy Suburban is a status symbol and indication that one has arrived!
Latinos love American names such as Cinthia (they spell it a little differently), Nelson, Jennifer, Douglas, Dillon, etc.. In the last 30 years or so, parents in Latin America have given so many English American names to their kids.
In contrast, I also know many Asians, but outside of Fipinos (who like Latinos love American culture), Asians, don't particularly care about many things that are typically American. They can take it or leave it. Europeans are snooty and think their stuff is better than ours. Well, the English love us maybe because of the common language -- the upper classes love our businesses and money and the lower classes love American consumer culture.
I feel sorry for Latinos, who embrace the USA so much, but we reject them so bad. In many ways, they are the ideal immigrants -- hard working, loyal, don't ask too many questions or challenge authority.. Sad!
Latinos even have a cowboy culture complete with boots and hats, just like rednecks. A lot of Latino males actually assimilate so well, they vote for Trump. Many Latinas who marry rednecks become just like their husbands. They may disagree with their husbands, but they will only say so discretely. But if you say anything bad about their husbands, they will be like tigresses, kinda like Ana Navarro.
We love our Hispanics and we definitely should since we live in California!
Please don't get upset. We don't have to be PC all the time, right?
