Transcript of Ableism

Ableism Why don't people see the disabled person's ability instead of their disability? Some of the most famous people in this world are disabled like Stephen Hawking, Marla Runyan, Vincent Van Gogh and many more. Annette Roosen Thomas Edison Tanni Grey Thompson Stephan Hawking Vincent Van Gogh Marla Runyan Stephan Hawking is a famous scientist who has a disease called motor neuron. In this disease he is paralyzed. He uses a device which is on his glasses. That device can help him talk, compose speeches, and provides control over the doors in his house and office. He gave many contributions in science. Another example is Marla Runyan. She is a blind athlete who was representing USA in the 2000 Olympics. Marla was a runner. She was in the final round and was almost about to win. She was only 3.20 seconds behind the gold medal winner. Vincent Van Gogh had a disability too. His disability was mental illness. He was so depressed about the illness that he committed suicide. He shot himself in the chest and he died 2 days later. Tanni Grey Thompson is an athlete who is physically challenged. She used a wheelchair her whole life but still she won 16 medals in the Para Olympics. 11 of those medals are gold, 4 silver and 1 bronze. She made 30 world records in the Para Olympics. Annette Roozen was a handicapped athlete. She didn’t have a leg but still she won a silver medal by doing a long jump in the para-olympics The last person I want to talk about is Thomas Edison. He had a learning and physical disability. Despite of many obstacles he came through, he made extraordinary inventions like a light bulb. After researching the topic ablesim, I have discovered that there is a lot of discrimination occurring based on ableism which I believe is very un-ethical. Whenever I see someone discriminating against a disabled person, I’ll stop them. I’ll stand up for the disabled person. What I learned about the inquiry projects is that no matter who we are, we should treat each other equally and respectfully. Overall, this was my project on ableism and I encourage people not to discriminate. By: Jhalak Shah
