Dear Editor:
Contention will not change the fact that Spanish is the second most used language in this country. English is the language of use by our government. (I was once told that at the time of the Revolution, German lost by one vote of having this role. True?) "Anglo" in the dictionary is listed as a prefix that indicates English or England. It is not listed as a noun. Just what is an "anglo"? Is it anyone whose skin is white? Is a Jew, an Arab, or a Slav an "anglo"? I am white skinned and of Germanic descent; I am not an "anglo". I consider myself along with my black and brown compatriots to be Americans and gentlemen. (My definition of a gentleman is one who neither looks up to nor down on any other person.) From the time of the Revolution until after the Civil War, American society was dominated by the W.A.S.P. but that is changing. W.A.S.P.s still hold disproportionate power in our country. What the effect of the Hispanic-American vote will have on the next election, we will know after 2004, won't we?
