— a big problem with diversity

What is diversity? Most people would say –
people of race and people of gender.
This is correct – but one thing is
missing – disability! This was the
argument deaf model Nyle DiMarco pointed
out, disagreeing with a post in
Huffington Post. A picture is at:


— lesson from Roseanne being fired

A newspaper headline said:
Lesson from Roseanne: Look for racist tweets before hiring

We have “deaf hate deaf” videos; these
videos show angry deaf explaining why
they hate some other deaf people. Who
knows – deaf schools and deaf agencies
may look at these videos first before
deciding to hire or not to hire deaf job
applicants! No one wants to hire


— deaf kicked out of bus

A deaf person got on a bus. The bus driver
told the deaf person to find a seat and
sit down. The deaf person did not
understand. The angry bus driver
confronted the deaf man and kicked
him out of the bus! A sympathetic
passenger told the deaf man that
he was supposed to sit down. Anyway
a protest has been filed with the city.
The city has given an apology to the
deaf man, but the bus driver has
not been punished!
