Solipsis my friend, I believe we have reached the end of our constructive conversation. When I stated you were demonizing folks, perhaps that was a tad excessive, but by the same token you opened the prior comment with broad, sweeping generalizations you cannot possibly apply to every circumstance or every individual. And while I applaud your bilingual expertise, I do feel that it undercuts your own argument about language barriers, at least in LA. And I continue to wonder how you draw your conclusions that anyone is “forcing” anyone else together in what we agree is a free country.
Good luck to you! I cannot agree with your conclusions, and I would encourage you to question some of your own assumptions. But we have wandered far off course in this discussion, and I think it’s time to call it a day.
