And today in anti-Latino news…

Hotel owner tells Latino employees to change their names

Larry Whiten, a New Mexico hotel owner has forbidden his employees from speaking Spanish (because they might be talking about him behind his back).  He also went a step further and made several employees Anglicize their names…

“…for the satisfaction of my guests, because people calling from all over America don’t know the Spanish accents or the Spanish culture or Spanish anything.”

But don’t worry. “It has nothing to do with racism.”

Dallas officers ticketed 39 people for not speaking English

The citations were issued in several different patrol divisions by at least six different officers. One of those officers was responsible for five of the citations, Kunkle said.

The case that led to the discovery of all the others occurred Oct. 2, when Ernestina Mondragon was stopped for making an illegal U-turn in the White Rock area. Rookie Officer Gary Bromley cited Mondragon for three violations: disregarding a traffic control device, failure to present a driver’s license and “non-English speaking driver.”

In that case and perhaps the others, officials said, the officer was confused by a pull-down menu on his in-car computer that listed the charge as an option. But the law the computer referred to is a federal statute regarding commercial drivers that Kunkle said his department does not enforce.
