For many years I have noticed that those from Hispanic cultures do not assimilate into the American Culture & seem to usually be catered to. Those from Germany, Greece, Italy, & most other cultures assimilate fairly quickly. Our culture seems to give special consideration to Spanish speakers with many signs & printed instructions using both Spanish & English. I see no reason for such special treatment other than there being a large number of Spanish speaking immigrants. In my city (Philadelphia), a year or so ago, there was a hue & cry over a restaurant whose owner posted a sign requesting that patrons order using English. I do not know if that proprietor gave up in the face of objections from both Spanish speaking & non-Spanish speaking patrons. I wonder if he had any Spanish speaking employees & do not think that every establishment serving the general public should be required to have Spanish speaking employees. I cannot imagine a restaurant or other establishment open to the public being required to accommodate Greek, German, Norwegian, & patrons speaking other languages. Why do Spanish speakers expect special treatment?
