    Years ago the El Paso Public Schools did not allow Spanish to be spoken in the schools. It was an attempt to get people to learn English by immersing them in English. I suppose all that is considered racist by the Democrats today.

    And it certainly won't happen any quicker if they lapse back and forth between the two languages. What Mrs. Lacey did was practical common sense. Immerse them in English, and they'll learn it a lot quicker. Perhaps she should have explained that is what she was doing, but there's nothing "prejudiced" about it. Frankly, I'm getting tired of everything being "prejudiced." It's ridiculous.

    Mrs. Lacey has more common sense (and b**ls) than the politically correct idiots in this country, whether in government, or not.

    Is it discrimination when you segregate yourself from the rest of the herd by refusing to speak the common language? "Discrimination" is just a desperated play to cover their rude and pridefull unwillingness to join the rest of Americans.
