My uncle is probably one of the most racist and ignorant fools I have ever come into contact with. Usually I do pretty well staying away from his disgusting posts on Facebook but this morning I couldn’t help it.
“I find it amazing that I have to learn a foreign language to get anything I need or want in a. country that has a language IT is still the. USA or did I drink to. Much and wake up in central American.. Good grief. I guess that is what I get when live to freaking close to Cuba. Where is the INS…Border Patrol”
I realized it was incumbent upon me to remind him that America has NO official language. That is the beauty of America! You would think someone, like my uncle, who is so patriotic would know anything about the country he lives in. My God, Uncle, it is people like you that make me weep for our species. You will be the ruin of us all…
I left him with this quote from Eleanor Roosevelt (in Italian), “Grandi menti discutono di idee; menti media discutono di eventi; piccole menti discutono di persone” which means: Great minds discuss ideas, average minds discuss events, and small minds discuss people.
