Disabilism: A Disease Embedded Within the Government

Posted by Jack Stephens on May 4, 2007

Steve Kuusisto blogs about the systematic discrimination of people with disabilities within the government in his blog Planet of the Blind:

Disablism is in my view the organized and determined use of power to prevent people with disabilities from becoming full members of society.

I believe along with tens of thousands of other people who have disabilities that the highest court in our land is guilty of disablism.

Justices like Antonin Scalia believe that people with disabilities should be grateful just to be carried up a flight of stairs when there’s no ramp available in a federal building. You can look it up.
