The head housekeeper at our hotel just quit and only one of the housekeeping staff here speaks fluent English. It has caused many problems between the guests and staff and one of my coworkers is insisting situations like this are why we need an official U.S. language.

Do you agree with him? Why should/shouldn't the United States adopt an official language?

what do you think the benefits/backlash of an official language would be?

Personally I think it's ridiculous since the United States houses so many different ethnicites and cultures. If we impose an "official" languge, it's like saying no one elses is important and all the racial shit of civil rights would be thrown back into society at full force.
