Let's pretend I don't quite follow the connection between language and race in the context of American, rather than Swiss, politics.

A country might well have several official languages or none. What does race have to do with it?

Do you think a country should have one or more official languages?

Do you think people who either support or oppose the idea of an official language do so with racial considerations in mind?

Consider the above questions as an alternative poll.

Robert Owen. I think it's a part of our survival mechanism, it does have a tragic downside in many individuals.
