My husband works in the field with all men. In this part of the country Spanish speaking Americans often outnumber those who speak only English. My husband is at work - a group of men (about 10) are gathered up talking. A Mexican-American is speaking to the group - In English. My husband is only one of two white men standing there. Suddenly the Mexican-American goes from speaking English to speaking Spanish. My husband turned to the other white man and remarked " Holy shi!, That mother fu3ker just ran out of English!"
I laughed my a33 off when I heard that - but a week later my husband was reprimanded for "making racially disparaging remarks". My husband is not racist - and I don't think his remark was either. But maybe I'm wearing rose colored glasses.
What do you think?

I am a 4th generation Mexican American I happen to be able to speak spanish just cuz I took 4 years in h/s and because my American born grandma who spoke english only wanted to speak spanish. I said all that because I think the ability to speak a foreign language is an ability you must learn and shouldn't be a barrier. I am tired of minorities whining about every little thing. It was a funny joke that is all it was. And guess what men cuss so what. This thing about always trying to be politically correct and walking around on egg shells is getting old. That is one of the things wrong with this country some people are too fragile what happened to the backbone of these people.
