    Well, according to you, multiple languages = one, so really you are no better than any other monolinguist. Amirite?

    According to Joko, if you speak Spanish, English & French (like myself) you only really speak 1 language. If you speak English only, you're multilingual.

    It was also a time where you could find easy employment putting together cars or working steal mills. But those type of jobs are not easily available these days and require more specialized skills than having a strong back.

    In Joko's train of thought, there are only two languages in existence. English and not-English. We're all philistines.

    Whatever turns you on.

    In the USA everyone is free to drink whatever cola they choose, and sing America the Beautiful in whatever language they choose.

    IOW:, It's a free country, deal with it.

    I agree. We now have millions of jobs for waiters, car washers, barbers, taxi drivers, fast food cooks, janitors, gardeners. As ****ty as turn of the century steel mill work and with terrible pay just in case you were worried about not being exploited.

    But the way you conflate white people with "native US" is quite revealing. Don't you realize that black people and latinos can be native US citizens?

    As the graph shows, the white population is in decline, while the black population remains more or less static. The only growth being observed at all is coming from the Latino and Asian demographics, all of which are being primarily fueled by immigrants.
    As I said, your concern is not immigrants becoming a majority. it's about white people becoming a minority


    And I was correct on all counts. What's your point?
    Yes, when you use correlation, it proves causation. When others use correlation, you whine "Correlation doesn't prove causation!"

    Philistinian sounds like an STD.
