Sorry if this is not politacally correct, but I am very bothered tonight by NBC doing their polital twist with all of the Spanish on the score reporting.

I thought we lived in America....

Sorry..... I hate when a network puts their political slant into things.

For many people racism these days is just about anything. I for one agree with the OP. This is America. We are an English speaking Civilization. English should be the primary language.

P.S. I think National Heritage month's are ****ing stupid and serve only to divide humanity by ****ing stupid cultural/genetic differences. This is coming from someone who is 1/2 Mexican.

But yes. This is all about money. They did it last year too during the Miami game...you know. By the theory of that guy you could say the NFL is being racist by trying to make money this way. O M G RACISM!!!

Just to let you know, yes, it is Hispanic American Heritage and I also find it "funny" that Sanchez happens to be playing tonight during the NFL's "celebration" of this month. Also, its the first NFL game being televized on a Spanish network, Telemundo, who is affiliated with NBC.

Bottom line, BUSINESS!

Business is conducted in English.
Our news and periodicals and literature is in English.
TV and movies are in english.
English is taught as a primary course in elementary school all the way through college...

I'm sensing a theme.

But honestly can we even call our language english anymore? Would it be incorrect to say we speak American?

In your defense, a lot of people either get confused about it or just don't know of the correct term for it. I've delt with the English/French thing in Quebec and that'll school you on the difference pretty quickly if anything can.

What I find offensive is the notion that somehow hispanics (in this case) care one way or the other that some of the words on the screen were in Spanish. Oh, you poor little minorities, us big-hearted NBC broadcasters know what's best for you! You can't think for yourselves, we'll think for you.

Don't you think you pretty much just summed up all of advertising and marketing in a nut shell? Isn't that exactly what all commercials are trying to do... get you to pay for their product by telling you what to think about it? So do you have a problem with advertising in general, or just advertising to minorities?

BTW, the pandering, (I prefer the term "marketing" since no votes are actually involved), last night was more than just some spanish words on a screen.

Yes, but that's why I have DVR and don't watch much that isn't recorded.

But speaking of marketing in general, would you risk losing a large part of your consumers by marketing to a small portion of? Did they gain any viewers, probably few. Did they lose any, probably few. Did they waste time and resources and if I was a GE/Comcast shareholder would I care? Eh Probably not. I've already spent more time in this thread than thinking about it last night during the game.
