I have great conversations with these people. I love the fact that we are all created equal but not the same. Variety is beautiful!
ME TOO! I love the sound it makes in my ears.
The difference...How often do you recite a incidence, interaction you have had with someone who has a different accent than your own, using a Westernized version of it?
And if you have, how often have you thought what that person would think, if they were standing behind you and you were doing it? I would think it would be very hurtful.
