— a big twist in Deaf Money Donations

Few days ago DeafDigest mentioned that Ed Bosson, who championed
the concept of the video relay service, lost his home in
the Texas floods. His friends rallied to his cause, giving
money so he and his family could rebuild their lives. Deaf
Activists have complained that people donate money to
Bosson because he is white, whereas a deaf woman, Sabrina
Blount, who is black, survived a horrific crime but money
donations to her cause was meager. The twist – Bosson has
appealed for his friends to donate money to her, not to him!
