People’s Perception on Deaf People

I would like to remind many of you with a disclaimer for this that this is my view, my thought and my perception of what I see out of the people’s perception on the Deaf people because every Deaf and Hard of Hearing have different experiences therefore they can share what it is to be under the microscope of the people who we labelled “hearies”. I am only sharing what I have witnessed on hand from what the hearies people have a perception of the Deaf people and Hard of Hearing including myself as I am one of many Deaf person in the world. So, I encourage the Deaf and Hard of Hearing to share their thoughts on what it is like to get an idea of how the hearies people view them as or of. Now that we get this out, as I have said that this is my view for getting the idea of what the hearies have a perception of us Deaf and Hard of Hearing people. It is no secret that the Deaf people doesn’t have it easy, in fact they must work as twice hard to survive whether it be trying to get a job from somewhere and being oppressed by many of people for several decades. I have seen, I am certain that many if not all Deaf community can say that when we declare that we are Deaf or Hard of Hearing we would get a reaction from the hearies as if being Deaf means that we are uneducated and took us as if we have mental retardation or in nicer word “intellectual disability” for some reason. There are a few theories but mainly I can blame a few of the people who invented a term words for the Deaf people which is “Deaf and Dumb” so that misled many of the hearies people to think that Deaf people have no intelligence whatsoever hence the word “Dumb”. Whomever invented that term to label the Deaf people several decades ago were obviously uneducated and in the end, they weren’t intelligent so that is irony since there have been many studies that have done on the Deaf people which have found that they can be as intelligent as others if they are being taught in their native language (American Sign Language, British Sign Language, Auslan, Langue Des Signes Du Quebec-LSQ etc.).

12-4-2016 Tidbits

How are every one of you guys and women have done lately? I hope that all of you are doing well, I am doing well myself but lately I have been somewhat more tired than I usually have been in few months because I think it is where I am on a time restrain which is one of few things that I don’t like about the time but like I have said before that the time are part of our life since our birth and will be part of our death as in from time of birth to time of death. So, imagine a few centuries ago where there was no time for the people, time have become part of our life when the technology advanced and invented a clock. Who do we thank for the time? To my understanding, in this case not many of the people know this but the time were invented mainly for the railroads company because they need a way of knowing when to depart and to arrive at certain places so that’s how the different time zones invented such as EST, PST or whatever is because of the trains. I am not exactly sure how the clock were invented and for what to begin with but I do know that the time zones were invented for the trains which you can find about that from our best friend Google or Bing. Ever since the time or a clock were invented along with the time zones, it restrains us to the point that it limits us in doing something and get whatever it is that we need to get done. For example, if a news outlet tasked you to write a draft with a deadline by tonight at 11:59PM so that they can have it reviewed and pass it in for approval to be submit to their news website or if lucky on their newspaper but you were occupied with something else and then you checked your watch to see that it is saying 10:30PM or 10:45PM that would put you in a frustration situation by thinking whether if you were to start writing a draft would you be able to make it in time before the deadline so you could send in your draft to an editorial team? You will start feeling very pressured, wondering if it is possible or if it is impossible and determining if you have the will to push yourself to finish the draft on time? Very rarely that anyone will be able to make it in time because writing a draft usually takes about one, two, three hours or sometimes longer as it depends on what you are writing about or on what and once you have finished writing you would still need the time to double-check to make sure that everything you write is good enough or if it needs some correction and whatnot.

People In A Cruel World

This world is, undoubtedly a cruel world for all of us to be living in and who is to blame for making this world a cruel place to be in? There are a lot of the people who happens to be cruel, making the world cruel for us to live in and by making the world cruel for us is where some of the people gets to discriminate us regardless what we have. There are several people who happens to be “ism” is the ones who make the world cruel for us to live in, there are several words with “ism” such as sexism, audism, racism, elitism, ableism and hundreds more. What makes them that way? They are either influenced by their generations who happens to be one of these ism or being influenced by the peers that they were surrounded at their youth age and grew to be expert at being one or more of ism. It make you sometimes wondering what if there were no isms, wouldn’t it make any difference in how some of the people behave in this world and possibly make the world a better place for us without being feared of having to be victimized by one or more isms? I am sure that many people’s answer would be that they don’t know, but as for me I do believe that it would make a drastic difference in this world that we lives in and possibly make things easier for us to live in this world because isms is what instills the fear within’ us. There are a few times that I have imagined, what if one day that every one of us suddenly became nice to each others and make the world a better place for all of us. You see things that the people have done to many people, especially on news where the people are getting murdered everyday and people getting bullied everyday which is what causes suicide rates to skyrocket in this decade.

The Society of Deaf and Hard of Hearing

Seriously most of you guys got it made easy, most of you have privileges whether it be from your generations, your backgrounds and the record that you have done all of your lives. Now as for Deaf or Hard of Hearing people and you both have same privileges that you use at your advantage of getting something such as a job, Deaf or Hard of Hearing will have to double the efforts trying to be hired by somebody or at somewhere while the hearing person doesn’t; It’s almost guaranteed that the hearing person would be hired in a heartbeat while the Deaf or Hard of Hearing people wouldn’t even get a chance for an interview. That’s how the society is, if the hearing person has one associate degree while the Deaf or Hard of Hearing have two PhD, three masters, two bachelor degrees, the company or someone would immediately hire the one with an associate degree over the person who is Deaf or Hard of Hearing that has several degrees including PhD, Bachelor and masters they still would prefer to hire that one hearing person who have associate degree while not bothering to give the person who is Deaf or Hard of Hearing with very higher education along with rich knowledge or skills in a position that they were looking for. Thanks to the society that has been man-made to put the barriers in the Deaf community from becoming a successful person with a great career and being able to put the foods on the table for his or her family while that person with lower education has no family, possibly on welfare or on some governments payroll and practically is set for life even where getting a job for himself or herself is not necessary as the person who’s Deaf or Hard of Hearing has no money at all while struggling to pay for some foods on the table for his or her family.

Wish List For Achievements.

There are many of things that every one of us who would like to do something in our lives, to do something that we always would liked to or dreamed of having to achieved something that we can be credited for, a such example of achievements that we wish to do once we have reached our adulthood like buying a vehicle, house and a family which these three things are common in everybody’s wish list for achievements. Once you have achieved three essential things which are of course a vehicle, house and a family then that is where you can start dreaming of what you would like to do in your life such as maybe becoming business owner? Own a restaurant? Secure a job of your dream career? Becomes a humanitarian by giving the people who is less fortunate than you are? There are many of things that you can add to your wish list for achievements unless you have completed your wish list of achievements. The chance of completing the wish list for achievements varies as it depends on what you wish to do because some of them may be impossible to do such as becoming astronaut or similar because not many who can become a astronaut so it would be better if whatever it is that we have in our wish list for achievements is if they are more realistic or something that has a 50/50 chance of reaching these goals we have in our wish list for achievements such as becoming a police officer or policewoman since most of the times it would all take a degree to become a law officer by making a trip to some law colleges and study to become one so becoming a law officer is more possible than to become something that is so far out of our reach such as becoming a astronaut.

Ethics: Color Me White.

The other day I decided to tune in a news channel on my television to see the latest current events and to see if there is anything new going on in politics especially the United States or the world too. Almost all the news that I caught on the television the other day isn’t so new to me especially with the debates going on for the presidential candidates which is something that I am rarely interested of and then finally there was news that caught my attention after being annoyingly patient watching almost an hour of the news because sometimes I don’t want to miss anything out as I realizes that sometimes when I started watching some news in the beginning that there weren’t anything interesting enough for me to the point that I changed the channel unknowingly that there would be some interesting news on the way within’ few minutes after watching the beginning of the news on television. The news that caught my attention was that the University of Missouri got the students protesting against the University of Missouri because they have radical problems going on around at the University of Missouri campus with their administration especially the systems president Tim Wolfe I believe where the students are saying that there have been some racist incidents going on around in the University of Missouri campus and the racist incidents are being ignored by the administration at University of Missouri which ignited the angry in the students that attends the University of Missouri.
