So you have spoken and have named the countless “Speak English!” internet videos as the winner of the 2019 #NoMames Award. In a poll that ran last week for seven days, the video genre that never seems to end got close to 47% of the vote. The Yalitza Aparicio haters got 27%, with Tom Brokaw getting around 20% and Martin Hyde at close to 6%.
There were several examples that we and other outlets have written about, but the one that really summed up for us happened in Parkersburg, West Virginia. It was pretty bad, clearly showing that in this current political climate, the hate is real.
The only good thing about that video? We got to speak with the man who was told to go back to his country.
