What you are about to see is "White Privilege" at its most heinous. The interaction took palace a a Los Angles IHOP Restaurant and was perpetrated by person who obviously embodies hatred of a people simply because they are not white.
As I completed the last sentence, my mind wonder what would have been his woman's attack if the family was speaking Russian, Italian, Greek, or German.
NBC offers a look and read of verbiage associated with the IHOP attack.
The woman interrupts their conversation telling Vasquez: "We speak English in America."
Although Norma Vasquez is from El Salvador, the woman tells her to "go back to Spain." She adds, "Spanish is from Spain. I've been to Spain, so I know."
Norma Vazquez gets very emotional and shaken, as seen in the video, and tearfully responds: "I speak English. Not good, but I speak English," also telling the woman she cleans offices and works hard and at times calling her "stupid."
Carlos Vasquez told NBC Los Angeles: "Inside, I wasn't upset. I got more upset when my mom started to cry. It wasn't fair for my mom to cry to a stranger just because my mom was speaking Spanish."
"This is Los Angeles," he continued. "Even the name of the city is in Spanish. She shouldn't be mad or interrupting families for whatever language they're speaking."
The woman then equates speaking English to American freedom, telling the Vazquez family, "Do you want the Russians over here telling you what to do? Do you want the Nazis telling you what to do?"
Carlos Vasquez responds: "That's what you're doing to my mom. You're telling her what to do. She speaks English. She's not perfect, but she speaks English."
"I felt awful, as though I was worthless," Norma Vasquez told NBC4's John Cadiz Klemack about the encounter.
Relevant data that adds highlight to the nationalism and privilege exercised by the intrusive baby boomer.

The same study also found that Latinos will become a plurality in 2014, overtaking the white non-Hispanic population. The demographic milestone, marked by a press conference at the state Capitol at noon PDT on Monday, will likely be a driving force for the state’s economic and political future.Read more
Do you think the "privileged" baby-boomer would have so readily attacked a group of Spanish speaking teens? I think it safe to assume the intrusive woman is a conservative American. Let's imagine life in the United States if the nation was under full control of people liek the yelling IHOP customer.
Power feeds and grows off of power. Imagine unfettered power to dictate form the prospective of teh lofty authoritarian what you and I do on a daily basis?
The thought looks that teh IHOP attacker will show-up on Fox News as some sort of nationalistic hero.
