AGBELL need stop whine!
AG Bell Speaks Up on Pepsi Super Bowl Commercial
"AG Bell’s Board President, Karen Youdelman, and Executive Director, Alexander T. Graham, spoke up about Pepsi’s upcoming Super Bowl commercial featuring a deaf storyline (http://www.pepsi.com/bobshouse/). In a letter written to PepsiCo corporate executives, Youdelman and Graham stated, “Although we appreciate Pepsi’s efforts to encourage new promotional ideas from your rank-and-file employees and your willingness to celebrate diversity, we would be remiss if we did not call your attention to the fact that…your advertisement perpetuates a common myth that all people who are deaf can only communicate using sign language.”
Youdelman and Graham then called upon PepsiCo to continue “…to educate the public…and promote appreciation for those individuals that go above and beyond to overcome the absence of something many of us take for granted - the miracle of sound.”

And Thank them for their effort to expose ASL. *shake applause hands* Yes do it!
I cannot believable what a...heck wrong with AGBELL??
Is AG Bell Afraid of Something?
My answer: YES!!!! AGBELL doesn't want lose their business!
AGBELL cannot accept with Pepsi Company which they already release promptly Deaf commercial. That's too bad! Deaf Community really happy hearing all about Pepsi company sponsor for Deaf. I'm very happy and proud Pepsi Company willing do anything for Deaf Commercial TV Show of Pepsi. I do applause them! Great way to go!
AGBELL is expecting everyone must learn adapt teaching oral methods and cochlear implant will help improve better future community relationship. Where is that coming from information?? Honestly it's false information.
I've seen several few CI'ers who were not happy their feelings emotions and expression because of Parent were pressuring. I hope, One day, Everyone will wake up and understand open mind best interest for Deaf Child needs meet better education in Deaf School than Oral Methods close narrow minds focus "Mouth and Ears". I've been there experience about my past childhood and through patience make my parent happy. I don't!
Don't let AGBELL control you or everyone! Let's stand up and be strong best for ASL!
