Why Constitutional Rights Matter

Why Constitutional Rights matter to respect basic fundamental rights, including equal justice, human dignity, and bodily security. The First Amendment to the United States Constitution is very much important in the Deaf community today and tomorrow. Please visit this link below and look for page 9 in #4 A: ‘Probable Cause Is More Than Suspicion’

QUOTE:

“The first rule is that probable cause for arrest requires more information than suspicion or reason to suspect. 61 Reason to suspect gives an officer a basis for investigation, but he must find more information indicating crime before he has enough to make probable cause for belief of guilt.

The reason behind this rule is the known fact that suspicion so often proves to be unfounded and inaccurate. If any person could be arrested on suspicion only, we would all have an arrest record.”

I stand with Portlanders.

GU President Bobbi Cordano: Commit to Dehumanization & Restorative Justice?

Does White Supremacy consciously thinking they are superior to other people? The systemic racism is deeply rooted in the Gallaudet University system and nowhere is more evident than every fabric of “forgotten” restorative justice and continues to dehumanize BIPOC Deaf community by the so-called “commitment” that would create a safe space: bias nor hate-free.

 

Hate Literature: Redskins NO MORE!

Link: (Find me at 1:17:51) That was taken last Feb. 2013.

 

Finally, Redskins is no longer visible in American sports. We do not need an hateful ideology like Washington Redskins. Last Feb 2013 Symposium, “Racist Stereotypes and Cultural Appropriation in American Sports” in Washington, D.C. to stop Hate Literature against Native Americans. I did my civic duty by informing the audience: REDSKINS IS RACIST! VICTORY!

From the book, “Silent Victims: Hate Crimes Against Native Americans” by Barbara Perry writes a powerful thought:

“As intended, hate crime plays a key role in the contemporary oppression and segregation of Native Americans. It weights on its victims, discouraging actions, mobility, and engagement with the broader community. However, increasingly, as Native Americans have become more politicized, it has had the opposite effect, in that ongoing racism and violence actually harden the resolve of communities attempting to reclaim their identities and their rightful place in American society. It is this array of themes.”

 

Gallaudet University Board of Trustees

#gallaudetuniversity #deafracism #blacklivesmatter #whitesupremacy

To The Board of Trustees for Gallaudet University: 
 
Wilma Newhoudt-Druchen, a board trustee signed in a vlog: “Board of Trustees Affirms the President’s Anti-racism Commitment” on Tuesday, July 7th, 2020. 
 
However, some faculty members are not happy with anti-racism training, including President Cordano and her Executive Leadership Team at Gallaudet, the lack of integrity has caused great damage to the very fabric of Gallaudet University’s image. Cordano’s Executive Leadership Team, 81% of the team is White. 9 out of 11 people are White.
 
The effects of that history of racism are still felt today and tomorrow. Racism is freighted with insufficiently examined premises. 
 
The first is that Racism is invisible; it is no accident. Second, Racism became oppressed, and their language, as well as culture, suppressed. And, third, to meet personnel need to make Racism become supplicants of White supremacy. 
 
The initial response is prima facie discriminatory. Prima facie is a Latin term that means “on its face” or “at first glance.” The rejection and denial of White supremacy are at the root of the language racism on the Gallaudet University campus. That is a step to deny racial justice. 
 
There was an idea by Portland Community College, the first in America to offer Whiteness History Month, to upraise positive energy, to acknowledge context, consequence, and change. Will Gallaudet University change the climate on campus to challenge racial bias, racial hatred, and white supremacy? 
 
Change how we discuss racism and deepen understanding of whiteness and privilege. A month should be focusing on critically examining the state of White in the Black Lives Matter movement. We live in a culture of fear. 
 
Lastly, a board trustee, Wilma Newhoudt-Druchen signs:
 
“As a Board, we will emphasize and hold ourselves, the President, and her leadership team accountable for taking real action towards lasting change. At our annual retreat, we will be critically examining our strategic goals and developing actionable steps towards achieving greater diversity and transformative change.”
 
Will Gallaudet University be the second higher education institution in the United States and the first on the East Coast to offer Whiteness History Month? Learning how to examine race and racism through the construction of whiteness for the entire month offering workshops, lectures, and think tanks? 
 
Will the President’s stand against racism and hate? How will we know? The damage has caused the greatest damage to the very fabric of Gallaudet University’s image. Do not also forget the language Audism/racism of EPHPHATHA.
 
Remember, I made a vlog few months ago about Gallaudet University being as the top ranking in hate crimes in all of the universities in DC last 2017 under Cordano’s administration. 
 
How could it be a transformative change when Gallaudet University is predominantly White Deaf Privilege? Whiteness is Gallaudet University’s greatest economy that normalizes racism in a way that targets BIPOC.
 
There is no honor in racism. There is a purpose of dehumanization is to target the BIPOC Deaf community from the rule of protection to the rule of fear.

American Hate: Vandalizing Frederick Douglass Is Not Cool

The punishment of Frederick Douglass is an act of hate. The very scope of the hate triggers the history of prejudice and prejudicial violence against the BIPOC community.

The Sociology of Reducing Prejudice

0-12

So much of Racism has been whitewashed for the sake of Gallaudet University to make room for white consumption. As a White Deaf person, I feel embarrassed. The dehumanization of Black Deaf people, it was a cruel punishment which is part of White silence. Why continue legalized punishment? Gallaudet University’s contribution to systemic racism has always to ignore the sanctity of human life. 

One of my favorite Black authors, Charles M. Blow wrote a powerful message:

“Also, I’m sick of explaining racism. You invented it. You should know it better than me.” 

The cap logo: To stand up against bigotry and hate. The face on T-shirt: W.E.B. Du Bois, America’s Intellectual Black Sociologist. Powerful activist. Co-founded the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People [ NAACP ].

History in the making! Walking on Black Lives Matter (BLM) Blvd, America’s first street named in the solidarity of BLM in Washington, D.C. has been a profoundly moving experience and learning from the truths that cannot be taught, only learned through reading stories from the books, it has opened my eyes and heart to continue and to unpack my White privileges in a soul-searching experience.

I have been studying hate crimes for 13 years. I put myself to learn Methodology of the Oppressed course has helped to shape and strengthen from further examining the White Privileges in time-sensitive efforts to support the Black Deaf community and Black Lives Matter.

The dynamics of this methodology taught me how to develop skills necessary for understanding diversity-related issues and content; identifying and consciously constructing ideology; Those kinds of dynamics have been explored as the methodology necessary for handling conflicts.

Before continuing to proceed, the long road to cultural healing, then we must begin by understanding the White Privileges. But here we are faced with consequences, thinking it would be gone, all gone–that is the sociological problem.

Knowledge is power. How does Racism understand and grapple with issues of power? What is the relationship between systemic racism, institutional racism, and internalized racism on the campus of Gallaudet University? In this learning experience, what is the biggest role of standing up against Racism? Gallaudet University has been always a racist system since day one.

We must continue our solidarity to see the stories seen–and continue to fight back with everything we offer. After walking on BLM Blvd in Washington, D.C.; where it was the same location that is the most politically marginalized place anywhere in the United States. It is amazing to see something like this. The thrill of participation is something I will never forget in my life.

I would like to show you the books that I would like to suggest reading. Black Like Me by John Howard Griffin, discussing lynching, white segregation, the second book, Tears We Cannot Stop: A Sermon to White America by Michael Eric Dyson, tears means cleaning out toxic, white tears need to examine much deeper, the third book, Trust in Black America: Race, Discrimination, and Politics by Shayla C. Nunnally, impacts political life, listen to their struggles, the fourth book, The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness by Michelle Alexander, this book is one of my favorites, examine the system, for example, criminal justice targeting Black community, it is a must-read, it would make you unpack White privileges so deep enough to understand deep-rooted Racism;

The fifth book, Living With Racism: The Black Middle-Class Experience by Joe R. Feagin & Melvin P. Sikes, listening to their painful stories through Black experience, sufferings, struggles, and the laundry list and that is where that leads to examine the White privileges. The sixth book, Uprooting Racism: How White People Can Work for Racial Justice by Paul Kivel, teaching White people how to resist Racism.

Finally, the seventh book, The Many Costs of Racism by Joe R. Feagin & Karyn D. McKinney, that book is about Black families, Black workers, Black experience, many to list, and how the cost could impact the lives of the Black community in the age of Racism, and that is where it would require White privileges must continue to examine, most importantly, critically.
