English NOT the National Language

I am in the midst of the good ole News Hour, and a story on the Voice of America and it using English, or not. A commentator lamenting English not basking in exclusivity, comparing it to Radio Moscow not using Russian, Radio France not French, etc, etc.

We are America, and it might be a good thing for it to be said that our colonialist past should be cast aside. Let’s start including people and saying things, rather than being zenophobic and being preoccupied with how we say it.

Yes, I feel foolish living in this state and not knowing Spanish.
