Last Sunday, March 10th, 2019:
First of all, I would like to thank my driver for taking me to a training series about hate crime and bias. It was nice to meet people.
Why is Deaf community quiet in the media? Then it is on a mission to address the plight of America’s most difficult criminal question: Deaf people should not be invisible while there is still time to stop hate crimes and that requires the truth for all future constituents that could become a solution.
Deaf community is in desperate straits. The statistics neglects from the truth that would not admit community accountability. It appears that we had been made to forget the human behavior that appreciates Deaf people. Why is that? The basic needs in Deaf community would require pursuit of happiness and stop cruel and unusual punishment.
Hate produces ignorance, discrimination, and prejudice. Can Deaf people share their experiences? Will we remain for the rest of our life dealing with hate crime who had been trying to take stock in our life, turning around and considering our range of experiences that had made them what we are today?
Hate crime are often viewed in invisible terms. It is not easy to be defined and solved. When people define Deaf people are often engage in denials and pressing for more stigma about the extent of social problem. The truth, Deaf people are often overlooked in these discussions is the missing dimension of the human issue.
The lack of statistics about Deaf people experiencing hate crime is the reason that the stories of every day Deaf people—yet, it is missing big picture in United States Congress, local, state, national courts, even the capitols in all states in America.
This is true for all Deaf people in America, no matter how their childhood, adulthood, and personhood had been robbed and yet to be defined by the society that they are not important to debate about. That’s the problem of denying that it has created a huge hole in culture of stigmatization.
Injustice is something that Deaf people have to deal with every day and not allowing the society to practice the culture of shame, fear, and denial, and we must continue to challenge a toxic system that has been dealt with hearing supremacy for long time and time for change, shall we?
Hate crime is the most painful wound. Why should we decide this kind of personal history might be worthy of some attention? We as Deaf people are ordinary people living in today’s world that could be easily targeted of hate crimes even if we do not know it.
