AUDISM = SLAVERY
The picture of shackles below were used to control slaves in the 18th and 19th centuries. This is what deaf people are wearing these days when they are not combating audism.
After reviewing some situations around the country, I am rather disappointed in some deaf leaders for buckling under hearing control.
If we have an agency serving the deaf, we are to have 51% control of the agency or organization in deaf hands.
NOT hearing hands.
I have viewed a particular agency that continues to practice audism.
It is LOUD AND CLEAR.
Why do deaf people continue to kiss hearing people's arse?
Where is the truth in letting deaf people handle the agency?
It is OBVIOUS to me that the hearing people do NOT want to give up the control of agency, business or organization to any deaf leaders.
That agency has too many hearing people on staff and on the board.
It is NOT healthy!
Too much control are in hearing people's hands!
This is audism!
We do not need their patronization or paternalism!
Most hearing people are NOT telling truth or being honest when running deaf agencies, businesses or organizations!
Audism does equal slavery!
"Slavery is a system in which people are the property of others. Slaves can be held against their will from the time of their capture, purchase or birth, and deprived of the right to leave, to refuse to work, or to demand wages." ( from dictionary )
Prove me wrong? Try that!
When can we turn the tables and cut the hearing people off the list in running our programs?
Suffice it to say, it is not only one agency... it is happening to many around the country.
