Spanish Americans should not be deprived of English

Incoming email from Mark Alexander:

Thought you might be interested in this brief essay pointing out that withholding English from immigrants is racist.

I am. It's a good piece, too. The gist of it is that if English is not your first language, it is still your ticket to full and free membership of the big wide world out there, and that ethnic leaders, in this case Hispanic leaders in the USA, don't want their flock to learn English, because that way they would cease to be their flock.

I love the cat picture, but do not understand it.
