    yet today we call them potential threats to safety and dangerous We criminalize and dehumanize them No it isn t the Missouri I knew But in truth it is the Missouri that was likely always there It was always there and most of us most of us choose to pretend that the inequities in our communities and neighborhoods don t exist To the President to Governor Jay Nixon to legislators and policymakers I say This isn t a politically expedient issue It was the issue of expediency that in part caused the tangled ugly events of this week Matters of race and disparity and inequality and injustice aren t expedient and they deserve more than recognition of it as the heartbreak of a single family This is more than the initial incident the death of Michael Brown But to speak of it only as a single heartbreak is to invalidate the feelings of fear and anger of an entire community Their response tells us about the heartbreak of a community It tells us about the feelings of helplessness in the face of perceived injustice and of the oppression protest This is a community who didn t trust and didn t have faith in the system This is a community that saw no other way Mr President Governor Jay Nixon legislators and policymakers this is about responsibility and accountability This is a failure of the system YOU represent The system failed It failed Michael Brown It failed Eric Garner 43 who had asthma was pulled to the sidewalk onto his chest and restrained in a chokehold by an officer a chokehold that killed him It failed Ethan Saylor 26 who had Down syndrome went to see a movie and when he refused to leave was wrestled to the floor by deputies held down and handcuffed with such force that he suffered a fracture in his throat cartilage that killed him It failed Keith Vidal 18 who had schizophrenia was tasered then shot and killed when his family called law enforcement for help calming their son down In many ways the disability community has much in common with the African American community and it is in part why I did this podcast This is more than disability or race or even law enforcement responses It is the disenfranchisement of communities who are seen as other It is the harsh line of not being seen as a member of the community being being seen as a danger to the community based on who and what you are and that perception is on our televisions in our governmental offices and in our own biased responses when faced with events such as those that have taken place in Ferguson Missouri I am thankful to see so many people at vigils tonight around the country I am thankful for a more peaceful night in Missouri I am thankful for those journalists and citizen journalists on the ground who did not flinch in telling their story I

  • Helen Keller Returns to Washington – October 7, 2009 | Day In Washington
    in mind we must always respect people for what they can do not judge them for what they cannot do I discussed some of the fascinating background of this story in my August 2007 blog post and why in some ways it is very ironic that Helen Keller a progressive an activist a radical a suffragist a socialist an advocate for the poor a supporter of communism a pacifist in time of war pro civil rights anti child labor anti establishment anti corporate supportive of the NAACP one of the founders of the ACLU and an outspoken critic of the US government will have a statue in her honor in the Capitol However I do want to applaud the fact that this will be the first and so far only statue of a person with a disability in the Capitol and only the second of a woman Resources Helen Keller Comes to Washington a DIW blog post August 27 2007 Helen Keller statue to be placed in U S Capitol in October in the Birmingham News by Mary Orndorff Birmingham News Helen Keller Statue Picture www hlavka com Tags ACLU blind Capitol deaf deafblind disabilities Disability News Articles Helen Keller NAACP Pelosi statue Post navigation Twitter Updates for 2009 07 25 Twitter Updates for 2009 08 07 About Day in Washington is a nationally syndicated disability policy blog podcast This site offers information and analysis of disability policy and politics from those who are in the midst of it Text of podcasts is available in the blog post If you have difficulty downloading the audio please right click and save it to your computer for playback If you have a topic that you think Day in Washington should discuss or if you are interested in guest podcasting please send us
