The Archie Comics will feature the FIRST gay character in its comic book series to be more inclusive within the changing world. WHAT abbbbbbbbouuut DEAF character(s) as part of the Riverdale gang???

How come didn't DEAF characters being seen as true marketable for comic books or tv shows?

Speaking of true deaf characters, not being just the token character(s).

More and more comic books featured the GLBT people as superheroes or leading character like "Johnny Hex" and "Batgirl". Please check out the list of LGBT superheroes/heroines and villains /villainesses

Deaf kids surely need the "superhero" role models in comic books!! Don't you agree?

Some comic books or graphic novels already feature deaf characters -

FYI, Deaf School Adminstrator Got Terminated Yesterday

The latest news about the deaf school administrator officially got terminated yesterday around 4pm (4/23/2010).

Most employers or state government usually have to wait for the "guilty" verdict or the circumstantial evidence against someone. That changed much from the administrative leave to FIRED in less than a week. No official press release from the ENCSD or the state education department.

Were more and more people came forward in expressing their personal dealings with the deaf school administrator. Or what made the school board or state education board or state supt. dismissed the deaf school administrator without waiting for the incoming trial to prove this deaf individual "not guilty" or "guilty".

Was the institutional racism and audism played in the role of firing Dr. Reginald Redding, the
head school director of the Eastern North Carolina School for the Deaf?
According to Ridor's latest vlog posting, Dr. Redding accused the deaf lady of seeing someone else beside him which led to the violent confrontation. Redding placed the pillow on deaf lady's face. She managed to escape and report to the police.

Many of us have been concerned about the negative aspects of Dr. Redding's so-called criminal action possibly affected the future of hiring of deaf individuals to the teaching and administration positions.

The state of North Carolinia is well-known as the bastion of "AUDISM" or "Audistic State" since Dr. Bruxton, the state administrator declared the use of sign language for unintellectual people pretty long time ago.

Ever the state of North Carolina tried to merger the two existing schools of the deaf into one large school of the deaf serving 250 students altogether in entire state. That would save only $17 million dollars.

Fully sure about Ridor that he already knew about the firing of Dr. Reginald Redding before many of us. I already could tell that Ridor knew.
