— blind cannot help the deaf in ADA
A group of blind people filed ADA lawsuit
against the city of Chicago, saying there
are no accommodations for them AND the
deaf while crossing the street intersections.

for themselves and cannot involve the deaf!
— casting directors discriminate against non-ASL deaf actors
A deaf activist, who is an actor but doesn’t use ASL,
said casting calls which ask for deaf actors that
know ASL is discriminatory! Well, sigh, another
case for attorneys to argue.
