The absolute cheek of this fellow:

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roki

Anyone who was aware in the 90s knows that the real Roki was a veteran and singer in the Serbian national movement.

This smacks of cultural erasure, and I will not stand for it.

In the English translation, it works out to Roki.

How dare this other artist minimize the anti-colonialist struggle of the Serb people. :shake:

Why limit ourselves to one language? We should strive for a language fluid world.

in all seriousness, if i was waiting on you and you spoke to me in Spanish and it was clear that neither one of us was of latino descent, I'd be highly annoyed. It creates an opportunity for a mistake with your order, plus it's just obnoxious

What if I was ordering in English but wearing a guayabera and switching on my best NPR enunciation voice while pronouncing the word “tortilla”?
