Heroes of Human Rights

solidarityNancy Rourke’s Solidarity

Human right is an important example that has deceived not only me, but also the graduating students of 2015, also it is the failure of higher education in the most cynical, outrageous ways that allowed the keynote speaker, Vinton Cerf to preach hate speech in the eyes of breaking the democracy of a human life. He has breached trust with Deaf community in the most egregious ways. Gallaudet University has utterly failed in the performance of keynote speakers.

December 10th is the date we all must remember for two important reasons. Reverend Thomas Hopkins Gallaudet’s birthday and the International Human Rights Day, and graduating Deaf students are to celebrate the United Nation’s Declaration of Human Rights every day in Gallaudet halls. That is what Rev. Thomas Gallaudet wanted.

The contradiction of this blog post on how hate expressed in the community is the attempt to express a human language that is not matter-of-fact, when I, and my knowledge, and being a survivor of hate speech for years, my own conditioning are matter-of-fact. The high demand to educate about human rights in Deaf America, it is the nature and magnitude of the problem. When you are reading this, share the awareness with your friends, family, lost souls, and whoever they are!

Becoming an activist is very often a passion unlike the selection of advocates. People are often driven to become activists. For some, it is the beauty of the language or the aesthetic grace of an interpretation. For others, it is the love of ASL and pursing meaning from communication and still for others, it is about service to the Deaf community and humankind.

Whatever the reason behind the selection of an activist as a major course of study or career, there are steps to take to ensure that the transition to students how to stand up against hate bias, crimes, literature, speech and eventually “certified” activists are taken with the fewest obstacles possible.

Vinton Cerf presented a damaged prism through which to view the history of Deaf people, his rapid journey through the technology marvels, voyages of exploration and exploitation, all seen from the vantage point of Alexander Graham Bell Association’s effect on the development of genocide makes “entertaining” presentation. Does it wring your neck when you read this? I understand. Protect your Deaf mind!

HUMAN + RIGHTS= ?

In the next five topics, human rights had been developed to solicit discourses, discussions, and dialogues. These concepts that govern my thoughts are not just matters of my intelligence. They also govern the Deaf people in their everyday functioning, down to the most mandate details. Our concepts structure what we see, how we perceive the world, and how we relate to each other as Deaf people. Our conceptual system plays a central role in defining our realities. There is only one way to find out. I hope to share the same inspiration with my readers.

  • Human rights are Deaf people’s principles meaning of understanding reality and communicating that understanding to others.

     

  • The essence of human rights is understanding and experiencing one kind of thing in terms of another

     

  • As we make a journey in ignoring human rights, more surfaces are created.

     

  • Human rights encode our past

     

  • If the human rights in Deaf community are not strongly present in the media, the young generation of the Deaf will be economically and culturally marginalized.

    (1) “The contradiction of this blog post on how hate expressed in the community is the attempt to express a human language that is not matter-of-fact, when I, and my knowledge, and being a survivor of hate speech for years, my own conditioning are matter-of-fact. ”

    I’ve complained before, and first privately, that JT is making no sense. This quote #1 is unreadable, but we can safely deduce that JT is biased, this “hate” is burned into his soul and he sees nothing else.

    (2) “Whatever the reason behind the selection of an activist as a major course of study or career, there are steps to take to ensure that the transition to students how to stand up against hate bias, crimes, literature, speech and eventually “certified” activists are taken with the fewest obstacles possible.”

    i am not aware of either a school for activists or certification for activists, and obstacles? JT is an obstacle by barking up the tree and by insistibg on the D in Deaf. And the D in Deaf refers, of course, to those using ASL and identifying as Culturally Deaf. Nothing wrong with Deaf, but when 90-99% of the deaf community is not Deaf this becomes Ultra exclusive. Essentially JT is speaking for the 1%ers and that is good, but he is ONLY speaking to the 1%ers and that is bad. No amount of Activist Certificates will change that fact or make the obstacles any less.

    1. I come from one of the best schools that teaches people how to be activists and overcome the obstacles. What do you expect, Alec, all the Republicans are the obstacles that has been messing America up. Republicans are also the worst people that does not support Deaf discourses—the only good and one Republican has done great service for Deaf people way back in 1990.

      Again, you are barking up the “hate” into my soul is evident enough that you’re building the circle of hate around me. Keep it up, McFarlane. Do not forget the legend stories of Clan Campbell of Argyll.
