Reader comment on item: Something Rotten in Denmark?
in response to reader comment: Immigrants must adapt

Submitted by Dennis (United States), Jan 18, 2006 at 14:25

I am a migrant who came here legally and have made this great country my permanent home. No, I am not going back to that wretched place that I am born as there is nothing there for me. I am absolutely adamant about immigrants learning the dominant language and adapting to our culture. It just makes commonsense if one wants to advance economically and socially that one should adapt to the environment.

I have very scant regard for even for the folks who are from my birth country who come here and want to form their own communities that are based to the customs of the old country. I do not patronize their stores because I refuse to speak their language because I am in the great US of A.
