Mamas, don't let yer babies be taught no messican!

Via Salon come comes word that a mama in Grapevine doesn't want her baby to have to learn spanish as part of a bilingual education program in the public school system.

"Ashleigh feels the course would be a waste of her time since she has no aspirations in the future to have a career requiring bilingual talents," Allison wrote to the principal, "nor does she feel compelled to accommodate those who live in our country who refuse to learn the primary and current native tongue of English."

The comedy is, of course, that 'Ashleigh feels...'. I'd be willing to bet that deep down, mama and daddy's undiluted racism aside, Ashleigh doesn't really care. Apparently, her parents care more about their prejudice than making their daughter smarter.

And, just a heads up to the mom, Spanish has been spoken in Texas a hell of lot longer than English.
