Deaf Insights - How and What Past So-Called Militants Pointed Out Human Fallacies

Dr. Don G's vlog presentation had been excellently covered why we ought to be damn proud of calling ourselves "Deaf Militants", instead of cowering and running away from the societial labels.

W.E. DuBois, the former president of the National Colored Association of Advancement People (NCAAP), usually reminded the wary ones about providing the equal rights to colored people. Many white people felt greatly comfortable with George Washington Carver (not George Washington, the first president under the U.S. Constitution) because of his non-threatening presence unlike DuBois's fiery arguments about how the American society treated colored people unequally, etc.

George Washington Carver, the well-known and respectable African-American scientist of their time. He always urged the colored people to go along and work with the white people to please them, instead of agonizing the white society. In the end, white people rather have to keep colored people in their place, not of being treated as an equal member of the society. DuBois refused to accept the arguments that the colored people are the inferior species and let the white society to define, mold and re-arrange who and what the colored people were all about.

Back in the early 20th American century, the white people put the particular African Americans' long-term health under jeopardy by experimenting on them secretly without their own knowledge or consent - "Tuskegee Experiment", a longitude research on sexual diseases jumped from one individual to another individual.

George Washington Carver repeatedly urged the African Americans to be the submissive ones and work together with the White America, not challenge or offend the white majority. W.E DuBois furiously told the African Americans to advance themselves with the college education to make themselves real worthy human beings with full abilities, not to serve the whims of the White America. The racial lynchings of African Americans were very common in the 1920s and beforehand. The Jim Crow laws kept African Americans from being the equal member of the society without pathologizing or paternalize them.

One flaws about W.E. DuBois's membership with the American Communist Party which undermined all his arguments for fighting the full steam for the equal rights of colored people of its time. If not for his communist party membership, we would be more familiar with W.E. DuBois than the moderate Martin Luther King. The African Americans of the pre-Civil Rights Movement would be the equal member of the society from W.E. DuBois.

Vernon John was more bold and militant than his future predecessor, Dr. Martin Luther King. He was also the church pastor like MLK. John usually had the outdoor church bulletin said "How Many Lynchings Done Lately" in the late 40s. MLK took the whole credit for the civil rights movement in moderate stance. MLK perhaps brilliantly done the non-threatening approaches with well-dressed rights participants and had the Muslim brothers at his side during his famous speech, "We Are People, Too".

Thomas Jefferson had seen all the filth of the French royal mess which he eagerly supported the Terror of Regin in the name of societal renewal and rebirth of democratic process away from the heriditary positions and curried favors. George Washington, Alexander Hamilton and other Americans were horrified about the mob rules in the chaotic France. Whose fault? Of course, the French Establishment for not paying attention to the needs of their French subjects!

Thomas Paine wrote the "Common Sense" pamphlets as a paybacks to King George and the British elites for treating him shabbily and disrespectful. Paine almost got beheaded at the Bastille (France).

"Mother" Mary Jones waged the full-frontal wars on the coal mine owners for disfranchising the hard-working coal miners. In the end, the miners got what they wanted - decent work hours, safe work environments, no "company money" (scrap money) and safeguard measures for their loved ones.

If we turn beloved or accompany the goals and visions of the dominant majority. We will never accomplish anything to fight against the true oppressors, who tried to be the Creator - AgBAD people and proponents of CI surgery, ever deaf people kiss up to the expectations of hearingization of the society.

P.S. I am in real hurry writing up this blog posting less than six minutes. I have to go now.


  1. you have forgot my favorite American hero - the co-founder of the NAACP Jane Addams. A white woman and first female winner of the Nobel Peace Prize in 1931.

    The good we secure for ourselves is precarious and uncertain until it is secured for all of us and incorporated into our common life.

    Civilization is a method of living and an attitude of equal respect for all people.

    quotes by Jane Addams


  2. Whoa! You did a great job on typing/writing up in less than 6 minutes!

    Great post ;)

  3. Just let you know that I finally left a comment for you on my blog.

    I read your blogs and I really enjoy your posts. It's well written! :)

  4. Hi Deb Ann,

    Yes, I did see your comments earlier like this Thursday morning. I meant to reply to your comments. Many thanks for your compliment. I truly appreciate it very much.

    To be honest with you, I really avoid using computer or Internet as much as possible. I personally hate any modern technology which take up much of my precious time.

    I guess that I am paying the price for living in the fast-paced DC metropolitian area. I rather live somewhere in the woodsy area and enjoy tranquility from the overconsumptous society. *sigh*

    Look forward to more of your comments and blog/vlog postings. :)

    I usually use computer every another day, not every day. That's why I try to limit myself to 20 minutes to 1 hour or 2 hours per day. I end up using computers past 20 minutes for checking up on my email messages. Okay?

    Gotta go now. I also have to respond to Valerie. :)


  5. Valerie,

    I have no idea that Jane Addams is one of your favorite hero/heroine.

    I surely learned something from you, Valerie. Many thanks for sharing Jane Addams' quotes based on her wisdoms.

    I completely forgot about Jane Addams and other individuals co-founded the NCAAP. Thanks for reminding me on this one. :)


  6. Valerie,

    I only remembered Jane Addams for her dedication and work for the Hull House.

    I did not realize that Jane Addams also was a founding member of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU). She was ever called a "socialist", "anachrist" and "communist" for fighting against the societal injustices of her time.

    Thanks again for bringing up Jane Addams to my attention. :)


  7. Me too. I try so hard not to use the computer and it's like a friend to me. I try to limit to 2 hours a day. Sometimes an hour a day. Usually one hour every morning before I start doing things.

    Have a great day! :)
