  •  I experienced this first hand in Boston of all (5+ / 0-)

    places. I was walking down the street with my brother and sister in law (not that it matters but all three of us are white) and we were having a conversation in our native Spanish when a woman stopped us and reprimanded us that we should be speaking in English!  We were only talking among ourselves and she had no business butting in so I turned around (as she said her idiocy and passed us in the other direction) and asked her if she was familiar with the First Amendment because it allowed to to speak freely and it did not limit free speech to English.  The woman walked away quickly and nothing else happened.

    Now if the bigots feel entitled to do this in a place like Beacon Hill and right to our face, just imagine how the anonymity of the internet empowers them to display their ignorance/bigotry.
