Free Tuition and Housing at Gallaudet University?

ERM1353ArticleHeader.jpg

Why not Gallaudet University offer all DEAF students free tuition and free housing? Yes, as in spelling, F-R-E-E. After reading an article last night about University of Wisconsin-Madison “student government drafted a resolution that would grant Black students free tuition and housing that would help out centuries of racial inequities.”[Please look for the links in the references below] Because of long violent of racial terror, slavery and Jim Crow.

That makes sense. So, why not Gallaudet University offer free higher education for DEAF students? I will do my best to explain why they all should be qualified, no matter what the circumstances are. Deaf students on the campus should be bias-free and not to allow religious bigotry anywhere on the campus.

First, they experience religious terror and slavery because Deaf students are viewed as slaves to allow EPHPHATHA to terrorize their pursuit of happiness and their human rights to embrace the state of being Deaf.

As in slavery, in a Merriam-Webster definition, submission to a dominating influence–in other words, Gallaudet U. allows EPHPHATHA to be a dominating influence in hearing world. They have no business or hold the intellectual ground to own Deaf students as slaves as long as they are all cured to be hearing again. That is wrong!

Remember, EPHPHATHA means “be opened” and the objective of the goal is to eradicate the state of being Deaf. It is a dangerous game. Not only that, but Deaf students were required to show their dB tests to prove that they are Deaf–is that part of profiling, yes?

Why not make Gallaudet University as Deaf-centered? Do all hearing universities require hearing students to show their dB, too?  From Merriam-Webster dictionary on the term, profiling—it means ‘the act of suspecting or targeting a person on the basis of observed characteristics or behaviour‘ therefore, EPHPHATHA has been targeting Deaf people on the basis of observed characteristics based on their state of being Deaf for a century and half.

The goal to make Gallaudet University a Deaf-centered, Deaf-controlled, and Deaf-oriented and seek to stop language discrimination, language bigotry, and language hegemony. Gallaudet University should set a good example of offering educational philosophy that Deaf people have human rights to learn, thrive, and succeed without being oppressed by the energy of EPHPHATHA.

Gallaudet University Manual of Operations declares “EPHPHATHA: Be Opened” and it is clear an Audism market or even hate-speech market to establish rapport in order to dehumanize and confound Deaf people on the campus.

It is time for Student Body Government (SBG) and Graduate School Association (GSA) to team up before the Board of Trustees (BoT) to have the term removed from campus. If Gallaudet University refuses to remove EPHPHATHA then be sure to check out The Peter Principle to make sure Deaf students have the rights to stop the oppressive traits. New people merge into the administration. Open-minded people. All Deaf.

That is why I think Gallaudet University should give ALL DEAF students free tuition and housing until EPHPHATHA is no longer welcomed on the campus. Does that make any sense to you?

Cochlear Implants: Demodernizing Consciousness in Deaf Mind

IMG_4941 2.JPG

Today, I recently saw a lecture held at Gallaudet University by Laura Maudlin, the author of Made to Hear: Cochlear Implants and Raising Deaf Children was worth watching! I really enjoyed it—a dynamic lecturer. One of the best lectures I had seen in long time!

You all need to know that Gallaudet University owns cochlear implant center on second floor inside Sorenson Language Communication Center (SLCC) largely all about profiting, then it is pathological, period. Cochlear implant is about human violence. It is about diversities of cochlear implant, something lacks, something missing, something wrong, something defiant, something benevolent, something pitiful. They want to have hearing to be restored, so to speak.

I am really glad that Laura Maudlin took the courage to tell the truth, no human being can restore anyone’s hearing: they can only amplify it. When cochlear implant batteries run low or expire, the state of being Deaf will be always an inevitable and that is actually the reality! That is why Gallaudet University set up the CI center to do mapping—largely because of battery economics, money, POWER and bullshit. How come Student Body Government (SBG), Graduate Student Association (GSA), University Faculty, National Association of the Deaf (NAD), Gallaudet University Alumni Association (GUAA) and numerous consumer organizations across the nation did not object ENOUGH to protest against cochlear implant center on the campus? I mean, how did that really happen?

If Gallaudet University owns cochlear implant center, would we allow genocide procedure that is widely practiced on campus? Are they attempting to destroy Deaf? Why is Deaf marginalized? Why is cochlear implant center still belonging in the schoolhouse? Is cochlear implant an amusement for academia? When we talk about Deaf, it ends up in the schoolyard. That is a big difference. What bothers me the most is that Gallaudet University is a federally funded, private institution located on Florida and West Virginia Avenue in NE Washington—it is appropriated by the United States Congress. We all know that, right? It is no secret.

The money is so powerful to coerce people (cochlear implant stock-holders) to divide up our Deaf community and instituting us as warm bodies in the same manner that the oppressors had America coerced into dividing up America and instituting private land ownership away from Native Americans, my people. Gallaudet University choose to ignore that the fact that it would vulnerable Deaf people with no money so are we and that is not very cool. [WEAK LINK, YOU DEAF PEOPLE, WEAK LINK!] Money in power that Deaf people must claim to define our language and culture. Cochlear implants are being done in any teaching spaces around Gallaudet campus. Again, not cool.

I’m glad that I got to meet Laura Maudlin and signed the book, and she wrote with heavy passion—the book was very challenging to write which I can imagine that she recognized the later attitude that the term “cochlear implant”—has always carried the scent of impropriety of Deaf and ASL discourses even at Gallaudet University. It is all about Gallaudet University administration that have been known to fail. Indeed, many of their deliverances of reason do not seem reasonable at all. Intellectuality is natural. ASL is natural. Deaf is natural. Cochlear implants are not natural. Period. It will never workable. Lies are the main spinning of propaganda all over Gallaudet University campus. It is never too late.

I look forward to read the book, Made to Hear: Cochlear Implants and Raising Deaf Children. Then I can share my thoughts when I finish read the book. Give me couple of days then. Like Laura Mauldin said, “DIG DEEPER”—in the picture. I will always carry many conversations about how the globalization of cochlear implants are greedy in the public-health regulations, and to end the child labor.
