summary of vlog:
thanks to Cheryl of Ma for bringing up the concern that alot of discussion about Deaf Read in Deaf Read was all taking place in text English with no ASL.
You are right and I apologize.
Here is a summary of the issue with DR
Boycotts are a peaceful form of protest in the spirit of “truth force.” It is unjust for Deaf Read and Deaf Video TV to prohibit attacks based on race, gender, sexual orientation, age, religion and EXCLUDE cultural groups and disability groups. The TRUE FACTS – July 1st the owner and operator of DR and DVTV wrote in an email: ” ill add audism in the guidelines — try to do this today!!! yay!!!” He never followed through on this commitment and did not reply to any inquiries as to when or if he had changed his mind. Mid Sept the owner and operator of DR and DVTV said in a vlog he had gotten no concerns or communications about “audism” within DVTV. Oct 2 the owner and operator of DR and DVTV agreed in a VP chat that he would add cultural group and disability to the guidelines in DR. Oct 3 the owner and operator of DR and DVTV replies in an email “need to sit down and revise both guidelines this week. thanks patti” It is October 22 and it still has not been added.
