Ban Spanish!

A new Millenial story to shake your heads to:

spanish
Shake it, baby, shake it now

Öh. :/ What please? Some points if I may:

  • Learning a new (for you) language isn’t cultural appropriation, it helps communicating with people in other countries. Communication is good, no? It also helps with cultural appropriation but that’s just a side effect. 😉
  • Yes, I’m aware of weeaboos but, sorry, they are their own problem. Not ours. And least of all not a problem for the Japanese people.
  • Spanish isn’t another issue, it’s just another language which is useful to learn.
  • Spanish got its name from Spain, a country in South-West Europe and is in so far a very European language.
  • Spanish is naturally spoken worldwide, a lingua franca if there ever was one. Learning it is hardly cultural appropriation.
  • Spanish is a white language.
  • Why appropriate the German culture now? Germany is the whorehouse of the world since the great exoduses. There is nothing left to appropriate anymore.
  • Natural Spanish speakers outnumber German and English speakers by multitudes, they are hardly a minority.
  • You could even define English as an appropriation of German since both are Indo-Germanic languages. Brits, kiwis, ozzies, ‘muricans, saffas, stop that! We Germans don’t appreciate your appropriation! Go, make your own language!
  • No matter if you’re in college or high school, being able to communicate in whatever third language is indeed a reason to be proud. And it helps with international cooperation, understanding other cultures and appropriate them. And with world peace. But nobody wants that, right?

  1. The most important languages to learn in society today are global..the ones your computer speaks..I would recommend python for example as a second language if you want to participate in future communications with everyone and every thing.

  2. I have to admit to having to read that headline three times. “Non-white languages”? What the… ?

    I speak five modern languages, English, Espanol, Deutsch, pa-Russki et Francais. Not one of those is a “white” language, for there are many, many melanin-gifted speakers of each one.

    There are almost as many English-speaking African-Americans as white Spaniards. Africa is full of Francophones who speak French as well as the French. Russian is the second language of most of Central Asia, while German is spoken by considerable Middle Easterners. I cannot claim to “speak” Latin, but I know it, and a good third of the Roman Empire which spoke Latin was swarthy in complexion.

    Jackie, while I know several computer languages, Z-80 assembly and Sinclair BASIC are even deader than Latin. SAS System is kept on life support by the US Food and Drug Administration and the financial industry, despite deserving not just to die, but burn in Hell (it consists of several different languages with different commands, some having the same name across those languages, but different syntax and order of execution). To code in SAS means juggling Base SAS, SAS Macro, SAS Graph, and a few other languages, just to write a program to report a simple set of statistics.
