Just my two cents.
I have a very wealthy customer who is from India and has a very heavy accent and speaks broken english, oh and he is 100% american. Born in NY and moved to India as a baby. In Az he owns 9 apartment complexes, 3 hotels and owns several Diamond mines throughout the world. When I met him for a walk through of the properties, should I have said, "Thanks but our conversation is over, because I cant understand you, and by the way I am not interested in the $32k a month you are offering me to maintain your properties" I talk with him on a regular basis and have been serviceing his properties for 5 years now and people cant see how I am able to understand him. $32k a month, thats how. Business, not politics.
