When I was reading Beyond Hate written by Jon Meacham, Nancy Gibbs, Eddie S. Glaude, Jr., Katie Couric, and Deborah Lipstadt in TIME magazine issue November 2018, the quote caught my eye by Gibbs:
“Hate, among all our base instincts, is the most distinctly human. In animals, violence and venom are tools of survival; in humans, of supremacy, small, scared people hate, self-hating people hate, bullied and betrayed people hate as though hate will make large and safe and strong.”
Can we accept the fact that Deaf community is being built on hate crime as well, too?
Out of all people knows that hate crime comes with self-hating, in the language documentations that practice hate speech, which can supposedly hide from the society how Deaf people dealt with. How does it help to say that hate crime is the inerrant language of the Deaf, if in fact, the society does not require statistics of the Deaf in the eyes of law?
Isn’t that also the mirror of beyond hate? Nancy Gibbs writes, “you can’t be fooled, you won’t be puppets, you know better, you know the truth.”
Deaf people are no longer serve as puppets to please the hearing supremacy, the truth is coming out.
By the way, my English and synatx may be poor, but I make mistakes. I am not perfect. I am Deaf and I try my best to improve my written English skills every day. It may be poor, it’s a form of bullying and I’ve dealt with shit before even in English classes when I was an undergraduate student. I am not perfect.
