Letters

But the problem goes much deeper. It rests in a society in which the far right has become accepted as the mainstream. Vicious diatribes against minorities are now hidden under respectable concerns for the rights of English-only speakers who, as Baksys puts it, "bend over backward to accommodate dozens of transplanted nationalities and their linguistic preferences." Worse yet, laws and policies against linguistic minorities further legitimize scapegoating and racism.

This new trend in South Florida has already gone too far. It is time that anti-racists of all colors, nationalities, and languages fight back against the tide. Resisting laws and policies against immigrants and nonnative English speakers is one way of doing so.
