Election Day: Deaf Returnees VOTE.
The Last Hiccup Elections IMPORTANT. Our democracy depends on November’s midterm elections. Bottom line, the consequences are real blocking Deaf Returnees’s fundamental rights to vote without prejudice. Stigma is not needed in the society that includes Deaf community.

David Call: No Place for Bullying

No Forgotten Sign Language Is Ever Powerfully Lost
The Last Hiccup Me as Jason “JT” Tozier in 1986 photo. (Yeah, that was really me). Birthday party. How do you explain all those painful times and wishing things would be different? A kid’s life is easily damaged, and it is never the same. Looking back 32 years ago, as a 12 years old kid that was not […]

Imagine Lincoln Without Beard in Deaf Community
The Last Hiccup In 1860 on October 15th, a 11 years old kid by the name of Grace Bedell writes a letter to Abraham Lincoln asking him to grow a beard before presidency a year later. It was a radical idea, and I advocate the beards myself. The famous beards: Socrates, Leonardo da Vinci, Paddy Ladd, Robert McGregor, […]

The Washington Monument of Higher Education for Deaf...
The Last Hiccup 130 years ago, on October 9, 1888—the Washington Monument finally built after 40 years of battles. It was also a battle for Deaf people during that time from 1848-1888. Imagine in 1848, Deaf people would have struggle with learning enhancements in higher education and hungry for Deaf education, and it was a battle for sure. […]

The Daily Moth: Passion and Clarity?
The Last Hiccup There are many Deaf political activists who withdrew their support for Chris Haulmark WAY before Amy Cohen Efron and Melt Patterson did. It’s not just two of them. The fellowship of Deaf political activists who is not considered as “well-known” which is an insult to their experience. However, being defined “well-known” is brutal. Those Deaf […]

Chicago MED: Profiting Deaf People Off in Hollywood...
The Last Hiccup Dear readers, I had technical problem with iMovie and tried to upload YouTube video via ASL, but it is not working for some reason. My apologies. “IMovie quit unexpectedly” twice—argh! Few hours ago (Wednesday, September 26 evening), I was watching NBC show, “Chicago Med”—and there were plenty of red flags. And, that is not cool […]

Ted Baran: A Calumny of His Duty
The Last Hiccup I would like to bring this message that Ted Baran, so-called Chief for Department of Public Safety (DPS) at Gallaudet University is still keeping his job even with his bullying tactics, and it does not make sense why he’s still the Chief for “PUBLIC SAFETY”—time for Ted Baran to be replaced with someone who is […]

History in the Making
The Last Hiccup This month September, it’s the National Deaf Awareness Month. Did you know that I was the first Deaf person ever to sign Anthem in front of crowd for District of Columbia professional soccer team? It is a big deal.

Another Hearing Privilege in Hollywood Industry
The Last Hiccup Honestly, when I learned about the movie, “The Silence”, the hearing actress would play a role as Deaf person. It’s another language war. The term of war comes from old English, “wyrre”—bringing into confusion. It is also an insult to Deaf culture. It’s the bandwagon of hearing privileges that always the stronghold to overcome. Deaf […]

Isn’t Hate Crime Invisible in Deaf Community?
The Last Hiccup After I posted a video sharing my experience last night about hate crime where three people dressed up as fake police and attacked me at my own house on August 21, 2018 around 8:30 in the morning.

Why Should Deaf Children Be Condemned for Life?
The Last Hiccup This is invisible hate crime, folks. This is the world where Deaf children can no longer protect themselves. Every year, thousands of Deaf children are mockingly targeted without compassion because they’re easy to target for greed. For example, a cochlear implant surgeon saying, “Here is a child with no hearing whatever. Previously that child would […]

Empowering Deaf a Chance in Literacy
The Last Hiccup September is National Literacy Month. I’d highly suggest reading this book, Illiterate America written by Jonathan Kozol. The book does not specifically discuss Deaf discourses, or the literature directly to the Deaf people in literacy struggles. I’ve read most of the books by great Deaf writers way before 1880 International Congress on Education of the Deaf in ...

The Alexander Graham Bell You Do Not Know
The Last Hiccup Alexander Graham Bell often comes with a damaging idea. Bell’s relentless pressure crushed the Deaf community it does with oppression. Indeed, as I was doing some research for just fun, and discovered the real story of AGBell, the story that never gets told, is the story of why the term “oppression” became valid. It is […]
