Barbara Kannapell’s letter to PURPLE

Purple Communications,

Enough is enough! Please reconsider your position supporting DeafRead and DeafVideo.tv. They are great for Deaf viewers who enjoy participating on blogs and vlogs by Deaf people. Deaf people have great freedom in choosing to read in English or sign in ASL. It is wonderful that you support them but you need to consider where you need to set limits on DR and DVTV. You should have a policy against cyberbullying and audism. Would you allow racism or sexism practices in the blogs and vlogs? No. I suggest that your staff go through sensitivity training on cyberbullying and audism. Please reconsider your position.
Thanks,
Barbara Kannapell
