7. Respect?

Last edited Mon Jun 10, 2013, 10:26 PM - Edit history (1)

You really think I should learn the language of my neighbors to make their life easier? Isn't it their responsibility to learn the language and culture of the nation they moved to?
If I moved to Mexico, I would not expect my neighbors to learn English because I'm too lazy to learn Spanish. I would not expect the school teachers to learn English to teach my children or else lose their jobs.
If I moved to Mexico or Italy or Japan or Germany, would it be respectful for me to fly the American flag on their most patriotic holidays?
When my neighbors fly their Mexican flags on the 4th of July, do you really consider that respectful to the United States? It's not like they fly their Mexican flags the rest of the year.
