Open Your Eyes: The Gleam of Light in ASL/Deaf Studies

8648_fit512.jpg

ASL/Deaf Studies at Gallaudet University is the most controversial program anywhere, maybe in the world— inside Sorenson Language Communications Center (SLCC) is incredible—filled with political assistance along with favoritism and hate-mongers. ASL/Deaf Studies has been dominated by a hearing person—known as the most vicious writer in the program that will easily write you off like you do not exist at all and made Deaf students their anguish all too private, too invisible: Let ASL/Deaf Studies use this influence to shape private awareness, diverting the impact of their ignominy to a higher purpose. This is how ASL/Deaf Studies is today—by forcing the realization that the oppression has been hidden for its own good. They made sure that it is invisible eye.

Recently, there have been two instructors and an assistant professor; all of them are Deaf that has left the program this summer. One is well known, his wife is an administrator—and is very good friends with the Provost. The well-known assistant professor has been asked to leave the program, bypassing the channels through his wife as Dean for Deaf Studies—and had been recommended a full report by the hearing chair of ASL/Deaf Studies to have the assistant professor be wiped off the radar. It shows that it is all about generational oppression by hearing people still continues.

Deaf people—in the eyes of hearing people like the Chair of the program would be executed on the first hand. The chair has the power. Why? Hearing privileges. The ignorance, hate, and lynch mob mentality sickens me. Now that is rich, you have no concept of what Deaf people have been through—everything they say can be easily backed up—but they’re ignored. Would you rather live in your own little world where facts are not relevant? Don’t you care about Deaf people enough to want to know the truth?

Walking inside ASL/Deaf Studies is a complete and utter political perpetrated on the citizens of Deaf people by hearing privileges, anti-facts, hot-air windbags a.k.a. the hearing supremacy. The more you know about ASL/Deaf Studies at Gallaudet University, the more you understand the true meaning of oppression for personal gain at the expense of providing the academic discourses where Deaf people are easily oppressed today and tomorrow.

Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars.–Khalil Gibran

Deaf people at the hands of the hearing privileges will always bear a vertical scar on their wrist, mottled. Deaf people has been going through a lot making a bit of difference in someone else’s life, then just maybe they could make some kind of difference in your life and if you are indifferent to it all, then do not waste your time because you are already oppressed. No close calls, but Deaf people are stronger than hearing people—always will be! They stay awake until that has passed and will always go on. It is all about political struggles Deaf people suffer today and tomorrow.

    What else would you expect? He was hired by IKJ in 1999, right? His buddy HR in Silver Spring has apparently also given him keys to “his” house over there as well.

        So then, even though IKJ retired in disgrace from the prexy position in late 2006, the ASL/Deaf Studies Department is run by a hearing man who follows IKJ’s wishes (to promote the disability model).

      2. Yes, disgrace! SMH….Carl was a perfect candidate, in my opinion that he could have put ASL/Deaf Studies in a better light.
