The Truth about Authentic of ASL in Deaf Community

More Than Just Being Boxed In: Attacking Deaf People is a New Norm

Boxed In. David Call. 2017.

Cochlear implant industries are out of control. When oppressors throws Deaf soul away in the box, that is the face of discipline—I mean, look at that way, think about struggle for our language and culture that we the Deaf have to deal either through or between financial and emotional is unthinkable; That’s exactly the box—punishing Deaf people—for what? IDEA! Let’s box them! Imagine what is next…..

You see, there are evil eyes aka cochlear implant industries and stockholders out there looking for any flaws to stop the truth about Deaf culture and ASL, they develop underground online camps and install blogs about how wonderful cochlear implants are.

Those haters has attempted or thought they would stall the truth. Piece by piece, word-by-word, eyes by eyes, everything ASL have built in the last 50 years that will not accept to be defeated.

Thousands of Deaf people who were trapped in the box, has met and discovered the journey of Deafhood to set up symbolic messages. They walk out of the box and tell the stories that the struggle for the language and culture as their everyday reality and it is happening everywhere in the lens of Deaf Education today and tomorrow.

The cochlear implant industries attempts to constitute an attack on intellectual life of Deaf people, also attempting to denounce them as human beings. Not only that the box represents Deaf people as intellectual inferiority—causing more problems.

It is not the society’s business to determine when being Deaf is the problem or not. Yes, that’s right, none of their business, really. All the survivors who were in the box, are the champions of defeating gross language hegemony and held those oppressors, for example, cochlear implant industries, cued-speech organizations, and oralism practices responsible for attacking their lives. Isn’t it a new norm for them to attack Deaf people? Enough.

They are the reason they are the miscue of resources as corrupt dictators and seek power as well as wealth in batteries and cochlear implant mapping more than the welfare of Deaf people.

I would ask that, in addition to continue and challenge cochlear implant industries, we need to step in to remedy the rampant human and civil rights violations that continue to occur in Deaf America, that it take punitive measures against cochlear implant industries for such a reprehensible breach of human rights violation that has put their lives in jeopardy. Are we all getting sick of being boxed in? Let’s get out of the box!

LEAD-K: Where Is the Protection of ASL?

96624b91220ca1944ad21bf623cb4ee9.png

“Out of the mountain of despair, a stone of hope.”-Martin Luther King, Jr. [Happy Birthday, MLK!]

I still do not understand how could LEAD-K allows “Speech training [Oralism], Cued Speech, Signed Exact English [SEE], Pidgin Sign Language [PSE], and Cochlear Implant [CI]” in the video. It shows that LEAD-K fails to teach American Sign Language (ASL) fails in everything. It is true that all gifts of nature, the ability to use ASL cannot be imparted; it can be only developed, and one of the oldest complaints against Deaf Education is that they turn the Deaf child into a learned speaking-dunce…determined users of ASL are few.

For most hearing teachers of the Deaf, using ASL is not important anymore, only their mind is set in motion by only a spoken stimulus—for example, Cued Speech, Speech training, and Cochlear Implant. The question, did LEAD-K knew about this? Oh, come on!

The worst part is that LEAD-K—on the core team, none of them are even experts on ASL or even ASL curriculum team. For example, the state of California, there are three experts on ASL who are on ASL curriculum team, LEAD-K never bother to invite them at all. It’s a slap on the face!

In Deaf Education, children are encouraged to act stupidly because they are bored. By filling up their days with dull repetitive listening and speaking tasks that make little or no claim to their attention or demands on their intelligence, most Deaf school children are answer-centered rather than problem-centered. Being able to hear in Deaf Education is an acquired habit founded on practice, like acting like a hearing person.

How well Deaf children struggle with Cued Speech, for example, depends on how much of listening and speaking they have done, and it is never successful. They start to think about hearing: they enter into a body of thought and try to hear. The ability to listen and speak, for example, Cued Speech is passive, and I have yet to read about how children with CI seek the habit of respectful skepticism—respectful in the sense that it rests on evidence and carefully established argument but is never asking questions such as “why did hearing person yell at Deaf person for?” Cued Speech or Cochlear Implant DOES NOT ADVANCE ENGLISH SKILLS AT ALL.

Deaf Education everywhere is ours! ASL is ours! It is our academy! It is not just place for people to come for Speech training, Cued Speech, Signed Exact English, Pidgin Sign Language, and Cochlear Implant. LEAD-K needs to change its pedagogy and tell the truth that ASL and Deaf people are still oppressed. LEAD-K must be responsible for demonstrating accountability for ASL and effectively communicating the accomplishments, needs and value of Deaf people to the public and to the world to make it a better place, to have the world appreciate and celebrate ASL and its Deaf culture as well, too.

Why Did LEAD-K Bring Into Confusion?

Illinois Superintendent Depraves American Sign Language

Cued Speech_DumbAssI for one have always believed that any superintendent in Deaf schools who are support Alexander Graham Bell Association’s policy in the bias against the Deaf students. Cued Speech is a bias and manages to weave itself a very haunting reputation that is extremely difficult to catch and comprehend. When it comes to ASL, the bias would be laid on the table and then allow itself to be examined, thus becoming easily erased and eradicated. Let’s call End American Sign Language Bias Now. You see, Poets may take one view; both will delight in one of the most curious of all the curious biases against the Deaf students. The superintendent of Illinois School FOR the Deaf and the team in this manner and for the betterment of all the Deaf students is responsible for bias.

ASL are very much part of Deaf history, believe it or not. Language belittlement and bigotry persist as mechanisms of oppression and hatred around Deaf schools where Deaf children are being housed. It is a tough commentary on the cultural and social life of Deaf children that a written blog post such as this becomes necessary. The dramatic cases cited above are but extreme illustrations of widespread; daily acts of aggression directed toward ASL. I use the term ASL purposefully here, since these acts are nationwide and heinous. It is a hate speech, in fact, an assault against all Deaf children who are well honed in ASL who to define themselves. Deaf children are always in a danger of being defined in another language, that is, a spoken language.

If you want to know what it is like to have migraine, ask a migraine patient. However, if you want an explanation of how migraine occurs—what it is, what causes it, and how to treat it—you are better off consulting someone who studies it. What is true of migraine is also true of being Deaf. It is partially for this reason that he has drawn primarily on the literature—both the theoretical and historical literature and personal observations.

This is a language war in state of Illinois and it typically takes place in a fog of language confusion. The word “war” is derived from the Old English “ wyrre,” which means, “to bring into confusion.” Peculiar things happen to the mind in “language war”, and the person who actually tastes what it is like is not necessarily well placed to understand the psychological processes underlying them.

One reason for this is the fact that “language war” is all about denying other languages, and as such it violates one of our most profound, most visceral taboos—a taboo that goes to the heart of what it means to be a social primate.

Charles Darwin’s “survival of the fittest” becomes highly demanding of any Deaf children’s rights to use ASL today. Since 1880 Milan Resolution, the political freedoms and legal protections has taken away from Deaf children under extreme attack. What major details were left out of the general public about what happened on September 11th, 1880 and why is it not publicly acknowledged in the mainstream news?

For example, Deaf children are current survivors of all the subsequent abuses at that school being forced to learn Cued Speech under Alexander Graham Bell Association’s nose. Wipe off that bugger!

It is called Hegemony. For example, there is a quote approved by the Alexander Graham Bell Board of Directors by a unanimous vote on July 11, 2008. “Through its participation in a variety of coalitions, AG Bell collaborates with organizations that support other modes of communication, such as Cued Speech, Signing Exact English, Total Communication and American Sign Language.”

Isn’t that a corruption that depraves American Sign Language? That is precisely why the superintendent practices hate speech against Deaf students there.

There are many concerns but the big one that needs to be seen that the superintendent allows hearing teachers to become a CULT, for example, P.R. Berthon explains in 1993 the word in Latin, it means to inhabit…and are (ure) is defined as ‘the result of’; this in the broadest sense, one might define culture as ‘the result of human action‘. It is Anti-Deaf Culture.

SPEECH= any action that hurts, offends or judges others;

HATE= A feeling of aversion or hostility;

DEAF= a collectivity: the people as a whole that is regarded as opprobrious, as a source of ignominy (humiliating)

Silence, when communication is expected, is inextricably tied to the act of ostracism.”- K.D. Williams & J.P. Forgas, The Social Outcase: Ostracism, Social Exclusion, Rejection, and Bullying, 2005.

Charles Darwin, he thought Deaf people were evolved from monkeys and had inability to repeat the same sound implies inability to reason and that is where Cued Speech (the form of Oralism) comes in like eating a chocolate candy then passes out. On the other hand, the superintendent runs its sophisticated, spinning public relations, continues to mislead our society in one of many Internet publications–it is very much Aristotelian institution, they have been inventing its own rules, for example, the key terms to oppress ASL and its Deaf culture and the identity of Deaf in “hearing” status form.

The superintendent knew that Deaf children are not radical enough to commit a life of livelihood of ASL, and “ENCOURAGES” to follow their orders when Cued Speech teachers are present. They are presented with two options in the book, and are not completely sold on either of them.

One compels their head, the other, their heart. Their independence adherence to their own values in selecting trust is ultimately dismissed by school system which has radically disrupt the rule of not using ASL when Deaf students wish to use their language preference. When Deaf students violate the rules of using ASL, the superintendent punishes them. The consequences are far more “ill” than Deaf students actually expounds in their letter. For their freedom to use ASL, they must make the ultimate sacrifice.
