Police Doesn’t Protect Deaf, Instead Harms Deaf

You would think that the law enforcement are hard on the colored people, abuse their power against them and did several police brutality on them but what many people does not realize is that they are not the only one. Law Enforcement gives Deaf and Hard of Hearing people a very hard time as there are several stories about their experiences when they had confrontation with the police. One of several experiences, there were a Deaf woman who called police for immediate help because she was being beaten by her boyfriend or husband so once the police arrived at their residence and the Deaf woman were approached by the police where she would be supposedly to explain the situation about her husband or her boyfriend beat her to the plum but instead the police never took the time to hear her explanation so they tasered her then body slams her to the ground with their knees on the back of her body and cuffed her then books her to the jail while the husband or boyfriend who can hear were scoot-free. So imagine the horror as if you were in her shoes, the police never even questioned that man or even to let the woman to tell them what was going on or the reason for their call to the police station so they immediately arrested a victim and booked her there without an interpreter to read her rights which is illegal under American with Disabilities Act 1990. Didn’t even bother asking that man about the situation or anything, as they just tasered her, arrested her then put her in the back of the car and left while that man get to chill at her house with a jail-free card given by the police. How can they do that?

AG Bell Is At It Again!

AG Bell in short for Alexander Graham Bell Association for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing, generally in the eyes of public AG Bell is just short for Alexander Graham Bell himself who is known for being inventor as he have invented phone that everybody uses inside their household but its eyes of the Deaf community the name AG Bell itself is shortened for Alexander Graham Bell Association for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing as both of these are practically same nonetheless. In the recent news, AG Bell have just detonated the ticking bomb not only in the Deaf community but also some professionals who is experts in the languages itself as there were a conference where AG Bell gave presentation by none other than the president of AG Bell, Meredith K. Sugar and in her presentation at a conference she declared that American Sign Language which is Deaf and Hard of Hearing’s native language is animal for any Deaf or Hard of Hearing child to learn. To be exact she declared that bilingualism is animal for any Deaf or Hard of Hearing child to learn, which referring to two languages in a package; American Sign Language and English is animal for anyone to learn. How does bilingualism works? When a Deaf or Hard of Hearing child born, that child would learn its native language which is American Sign Language as their first language so that the child have the ability to communicate at later in their life and then once their brain have developed to the point that they know how to communicate then they start learning English so they would know two languages which is what every business or colleges always look for in their application because they like anyone who is bilingual that fluent in more than one language.

Michael Hubbs Is Hypocrite.

Even though this blog aims for a broad of people in general, meaning that this weblog is not a Deaf niche blog as from the beginning to this day I write articles for the people regardless if they are or not Deaf or Hard of Hearing and any other kinds as I produces for the people regardless what their background is. That is and always have been my readers base for over eight (8) years as I write about everything so it’s not focused on just one niche or two as this blog is focuses on all kinds of niches or what I call it “all-in-one” niche. With that being said, I am going to start this article about a gentleman or should I say not-so-gentlemen in this case who goes by the name Michael Hubbs and he is somewhat a well-known person considering that he have decent numbers of fans base or followers because on his social media such as Twitter he has over 56 thousand followers which is somewhat surprising especially to me. Before I start writing the Deaf community’s perceptive of him along with my opinion too, Michael Hubbs is known as Deaf Speed Skater who have said that he will not allow any obstacles to get in his way of his dream to enter the 2018 Winter Olympics and he have entered the United States Olympics few years ago but failed to make it to the list to compete against others. I am not expert or even have much of knowledge in any kinds of olympics but I do understand how it goes, in United States Olympics or any olympics if you want to get in you must do some qualifying before you can get in it to compete against others and in that Michael Hubbs himself could not pass their qualification or in some sort of that progress to be qualified to enter the olympics so I hope this clarify a bit on what happens with Michael Hubbs.

Burger King Tribute To Deaf Community!

One of fast foods chain somewhere over in the district of D.C. here in the United States decided to do something special, by doing something special which means they showed their appreciate to the Deaf community by temporarily changing the looks of the fast food restaurant itself and that is the Burger King. What did they do that shows their appreciation to the Deaf community? By changing the looks of the restaurant itself temporarily with the Deaf and Hard of Hearing’s native language American Sign Language (ASL). Although by on the social media, the Deaf community is saying that it is only for one day as there is some Deaf events that are going on down there in the district of D.C. and in my opinion I believe that Burger King should keep the way they are for at least a few days or more so a week if possible because then that would truly show that Burger King does appreciate their Deaf and Hard of Hearing customers who order their foods on regular basis. Even though it may be only for one day, they still shows that they are an alliance of the Deaf community and I am almost certain that no other fast food chain restaurants will follow the Burger King’s example by doing something similar to show that they are also an ally to the Deaf community. Like its competitor Hardee’s? McDonald’s? Or even Wendy’s, Pizza Hut, Papa Johns, Taco Bell or others? So the way that Burger King did today is truly amazing for the Deaf community especially after an attempted to smear the Deaf Community from Alexander Graham Bell Association for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing aka AG Bell which you can find my article about what AG Bell did to the Deaf community here (click here).

AG Bell’s Response about Nyle DiMarco.

A few days ago recently, an anti-cultural organization have written a public response to the Washington’s Post in regards to a proudly Deaf gentleman Nyle DiMarco who succeeds in the television industry such as America’s Next Top Model and now on Dancing With the Stars; Nyle DiMarco’s statements about the importance in Deaf or Hard of Hearing children to learn American Sign Language at an early age. AG Bell founded by the same person who invented your telephone, Alexander Graham Bell who founded an organization (association) calls Alexander Graham Association for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing but in reality it is the organization who degrades the Deaf community for many decades along with many of other things that the organization have done to the Deaf community very harshly so for that it has become the public enemy in the eyes of Deaf community. AG Bell have issued a public response to Washington Post article as it is what AG Bell do their best which is oppress or degrade anybody who is Deaf or Hard of Hearing by saying that the statement Nyle DiMarco made which is “There are many deaf kids out there being deprived of their own language” is a myth and then started off lying by implying that American Sign Language is declining. It would be better off with you reading the response by AG Bell and not me telling you what they are saying because that response by AG Bell have angered the Deaf community and I am proud to say that I am part of the Deaf community.

Skype For Deaf and Hard of Hearing.

As of lately I have started to use the king of all video calling, instant messaging and group video calling calls Skype with a couple of my friends who happens to be Deaf which that means we communicate in our native language with each others on Skype. In case some of you may not know what I mean by our native language, that would be American Sign Language (ASL) as there are many of us Deaf and Hard of Hearing people’s first language is American Sign Language since that it is the language we started to learn when a tiny brain of ours starts to grow to a point that can understand the communication whether it be American Sign Language, English or any other languages that their parents prefer for their children. After spending a little more time of using Skype, for past years I was somewhat unsure of Skype because ever since I first owned a computer I always used Yahoo! Messenger and that is obviously different from what Skype is since Skype has much more features such as video calling, audio calling which that is something that is useless to me as I am hard of hearing and sharing the screen with other people. These features I mentioned is what are different from Yahoo Messengers, while as for the rest of other features is same between both such as files sharing (photos, documents, videos, audio, etc) and I forgot to mention that Skype have a feature where you can leave a video message although I don’t know if Yahoo Messenger have that feature now or not but if they do please let me know in the comment below.
