If I know someone who speaks only English is in the conversation we generally speak mostly English unless there is someone who only speaks Spanish, at which point I will alternate so everyone can be involved and understand. Not really a big deal. When I go somewhere and they are speaking in another language I don't understand, it never bothers me. I actually love to hear all the different ways people talk, even if I don't understand a word.
    No, people speaking at another table in a restaurant, for example, would be one thing. People conversing right in front of you in a group you're supposedly part of is another thing entirely. Yes, that happens a lot, for example, in a French owned company here in Houston.

    Racists would love that cover. I'm sure they try such intellectually impotent crap on many. Fortunately, 99% of humanity knows better. Making that claim is plainly, and by all logic, racist. It's like a child that has just stolen rationalizing 'stealing is a meaningless term'.

    No, ordinary people are tired of the race card being played constantly. I know some people get a thrill of self-righteousness from making that charge, but otherwise it's not having any effect.

    Claiming the term "racist" is meaningless is patently and undeniably racism.
