Junior's Spanish is indeed better but I wouldn't want to hear either recite passages from Don Quixote anytime soon. Phone Post

Like most us Mexican Americans the language we speak with our parents is its own language. It might sound like great Spanish to those who don't speak it but its crap in the real world. Phone Post 3.0

I doubt our beloved Bobby Loops's Italiano is any better but no one would question him rocking his red/white/green pride.

Also, not speaking perfect Spanish does not mean white America looked at Cain and his family and his kind as equals growing up. You think he wasnt called Beaner because of his shitty spanish?

cain sounds like a gringo tourist when he speaks spanish. nothing wrong with that as he was born and raised in murica but pretty funny as they're trying to use him to connect to the mexican audience...

I'm half greek and live in Australia, my family speaks a funny mix of greek and English, although I don't speak greek and only hear the English. I still remember the first time telling my grandmother i had started BJJ, I had to get my mother to explain it to her as grandma's English is poor. She said something in greek, then said 'like karate'. I still don't think they have any idea what BJJ is lol Phone Post

Uh Cain doesn't actually speak Mexican Spanish fluently. Its broken (mix spanglish), he grew up listening to his parent speak it but he spoken english...

Its typical of most 2nd generation, hell I didn't learn spanish, tagalog and 2 other filipino dialects till i was 18, then i learned arabic and mandarin in the Navy.

i dont even speak spanish and ive always thought his sounded sort of Americanized/ second language/ broken. i never had a beef with the brown pride tatt. not bad imo. but he is about as American as it gets. his parents were the immigrants, no. i get keeping the old world torch/ nationalism burning though.

At what age did he learn Spanish?

I believe I read he didn't learn it till later on in life, maybe I am wrong though...
