I am livid! We are living in America and our National language is ENGLISH, NOT Spanish!

Why are you discriminating against us? We speak German and Italian in our home. My sister-in-law's family speak Lebanese. Why are you discriminating against them and all the other bi-lingual families in America?

ENGLISH is this country's language.

We are so tired of the pandering to one ethnic group over others.

We are a melting pot of so many ethnicities but our common language is ENGLISH and for that reason we expect respect from a corporation as large as Target. Since you can't make the commercial in multiple languages, it should be in ENGLISH!

Target take you Spanish speaking commercials and stick it. You want to cater to Hispanics?

Fine. You lost this customer. Why pander? The almighty buck that important?

They need to learn English or go home and speak Spanish wherever home is.

My grandparents assimilated. Why can't they?

Why not in Swahili, Polish, Chinese, etc. We were an English speaking country.

Not anymore. My grandparents assimilated. Why can't Spanish speakers. We didn't ask you to come here.

You choose to.

Assimilate.

This is AMERICA speak English or GTFO. I am so sick and tired of people having to cater to some douche, because they don't speak English.

Hey, it's not my fault, if you don't like it, by all means leave this country. Personally I they should close the boarders PERIOD! Citizens are paying taxes in this country for illegals to come over and suck the welfare t!t. They turn around and send all that money they get from welfare, and send it back to their own country.

FACTS ARE FACTS! You dumb@ss liberals are so blinded you can't see past your nose or just uninformed about what's going on today.

The United States of America does not have a "National" or "Primary" language.

Besides...If you had ever actually been outside the U.S. (especially to a nation that hosts people of multiple ethnicities/nationalities), you would know that it's very common to see signs/commercials/ads in languages other than the national language.

And if you have been to another country, I'd be willing to bet that you have benefited from the willingness of people in other nations to speak ENGLISH to YOU, even if it is not their national language.

I'm also sorry that something so minor has so seriously upset so many people. Life must be difficult for you.

I think it's hilarious that so many people are complaining about not understanding ADVERTISEMENTS... I don't know about you, but I usually complain about ads and commercials I CAN understand...

If we don't LIVE in their country and they want to help out by getting out money for tourism -- that's one thing. We go home to our country where ENGLISH is the language. And, if they visit, and need help and I speak their language, I'll do in turn.

This country's language is English and everyone who comes here should learn to speak it. If you go to any country with a primary language you can guarantee you better learn to speak the language or you're just lost and they make no exceptions to their rules. Therefore, why should America bend over backwards to accommodate, either you learn English or you don't that's on you.

Guess who lived on this land before English speakers? Yes, American Indians.

But who else? Oh! Those Spanish speakers! Riggghhhhht.

They were here before us. Maybe they should have some rights. How am I so privy to such top secret information you ask?

I live in texas and I took 5th grade history! (And by the bye I am very cracker white)

I don't care what the commercial is saying. It's Target and the only thing I ever bought there was such junk that I returned it and will never waste my time there again.

English is not technically the U.S national language on paper.. But, if it was meant to be any other language then english, why did the founding father write the constitution in english?

Exactly.

English is supposed to be. You can argue all you want it.

The Declaration was written in English because the audience was the King of England (and the colonists writing to him were English colonists).

I'm sure if it was solely up to Thomas Jefferson, the Constitution would have been written in French...French or Latin certainly would have been more globally relevant in that time period.
