    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 am thankful for those who reached out seeking a peaceful dialogue And I am thankful for those who are angry and are demanding change My beloved Missouri is hurting not just because a young man was killed but because we othered our own people dehumanized them took away their voice took away their feeling of security in their own country treated them as something other than what they are citizens It is perfectly valid to be angry And make no mistake I am angry And like my brothers and sisters across the country over the days and weeks and months ahead I hope to use that anger to call for change to call for accountability to call for respect and to call for an end to the deaths of Americans for nothing more than who they are We are only just beginning And tonight tonight I hope to
