I speak 4 languages and unconsciously switch between English and castellano when I’m talking with other Spanish speakers (you don’t have to be LatinX to do so) and between English, Marathi and Hindi when with family and friends. And Mathy language vs physicsy language in context. I didn’t know it was called code switching until recently.

Most Americans, and particularly the ignorant right attacking AOC, are unilingual, and are hence incapable, by dint of brain structure, of grokking code switching.

Not to mention that they’ll attack AOC for saving the life of a grandmother as Trump tries to shoot the latter in the back.

I stop to miau to cats.
