There is no Deaf community.

Only deaf communities.  At least this buries the myth of all deaf sign and all deaf together, doesn't it?  We are as discriminating as any hearing person is.  It also explains in practical terms why deaf inclusion is entirely relative, it doesn't rely on education or even signed support.  Current issues are that everybody is being enabled to exclude by right of their own cultural/religious/disabled/ political/communicational and language norms.  ATR posted last year deaf clubs where no Asian deaf attended, no black deaf attended, fewer or no disabled attended,  no Islamic deaf attended, and no Jewish deaf either.  So do minorities prefer not to know the white deaf?  Or are they endorsing 'choice' as an excuse?
