How to tame a wild tongue

27 Aug

In this passage it talks of how over the years Gloria Anzaldua had to deal with the problems of being a native Hispanic in a country where the dominate  language is English. She finds that as she mixes the two that her fellow natives disapprove but also the English want more English and no Spanish at all.

Why do we discriminate against other native tongues? Also, Why do the various variations discriminate against each other?

I know the narrator has trouble being proud of her own language but what about you? Do you ever not feel comfortable with your language?
