    Wal-Mart workers walk out in Florida

    Agreed, my parents also had to assimilate quickly - take English classes, adapt to the new rules and culture. These days, immigrants can cocoon themselves in their ethnic communities and never learn a word of English. Why? Because the system allows it. You can even take your citizenship test in a foreign language! Good intentions, in this case, have led to the long-term detriment of these people.

    Assimilating, while maintaining your ethnic identity and uniqueness, is good for the individual and good for the society.

    English should be mandatory. Learning and mastering English is a pre-requisite to advancement and prosperity. Being bi-lingual is always an asset, as long as one of those languages is English. This is not racism. It's just a fact of life here in the USA.
