Carlos, you really don’t speak Spanish?

Carlos Hernandez,
Seagoville, TX

I am a Hispanic of Mexican descent with an extremely stereotypical name. My first and last names are both common Latino names. So, when people figure out I can’t speak Spanish well, they don’t believe me and my fellow Latinos mock me for it. I can’t help that I wasn’t taught the language at a young age and I wish I knew it better.
