Look at this mother and her daughter’s reactions to one of a woman who was shopping at Walmart on Friday asking them to use the English language when conversing.
Many people have it as a myth that English is the official language in us in the United States of America. That is not true as the US technically does not have a language that has been officiated. So, it should not be a surprise when you go out in public places and find people conversing in their native language. Chances of coming across this case are greater when you go shopping at Walmart especially on Black Fridays.
According to the Facebook post by Jasmine Xiong, which has gone viral, she and her mother found it comfortable to converse in their native Hmong language when they went shopping at Walmart in Appleton, Wisconsin, on Black Friday. The two didn’t realize anything wrong with them using their vernacular as the conversation only involved the two of them.
What followed came as a shock to both Jasmine and her mother, and over 40,000 who had a chance to watch the video on Facebook.
USA Today revealed that another woman walked towards Jasmine and her mother then told them that they should use English when speaking. The only surprising thing is that the woman proceeded with her statement even after realizing that the conversation that the two had had nothing to do with her. She insisted that they should speak English just because they are in America.
Jasmine and her mother asked the woman if she implied that she would use Hmong if she pays them a visit to their house.
