I am utterly revolted, Shame on you tumblr, and if this video was shot in good spirit and you turned it into this, double shame on you.</p> </blockquote> <p>Holy actual ableism batman</p> </blockquote> <p>Update: This has been confirmed by Mrs. Alaimo, director of Special Education, of Floral Park Memorial High School to be her students, and they are aware of the situation and have contacted vine to have it removed, which was ignored, and pretty much a moot point because once it’s on the internet, it stays on the internet. At this point, it’s best to just spread awareness, but these are developmentally disabled children (aged 7th-12th grade.)</p> </blockquote> <p>Holy shit.</p> </blockquote> <p>Idk if what I have to say matters, but I’m a recent graduate of FPM (Class of 2014, actually), and I am absolutely sick over this. In my years at FPM, we were all encouraged to interact positively with developmentally disabled students as much as we could, and no matter how much of a jackass certain people wanted to be, I’ve never seen anyone treat any of those students with such little respect. From what I’ve seen, the program has a strong “it takes a village” mentality and tries very hard to prepare disabled students for life after FPM. What was a well-deserved moment of fun for students that I actually recognize from last year was turned into a joke about their capabilities and, regardless of my love for FPM, I can’t sit idly and say nothing. I know that I ain’t shit and I certainly am not a representative for the school, but on behalf of the graduated student body, I want to sincerely apologize for this idiot’s actions and for the strain put on the Special Education department at this time. My class always joked about how FPM would be nothing without us once we left, but we really didn’t think we would see something like this happening. Please don’t let this cloud of ableist bullshit hang over the entire school, because i know Mrs. Alaimo puts in a lot of work to lead workshops and inform students so that they don’t think the same way as the girl who took this vine clearly does.</p> </blockquote> <div>So no ones gonna ask why they were listening to that. Please explain to me why they had these disabled folks listening to this type of music. And y’all right that’s fucked up but usually disabled or not white people don’t do African American dances properly that’s why people thought it was a reg deg vid.</div> </blockquote> <p>it’s fucking music?? it’s just music, girl, maybe they just happened to fucking like it. Music has no “race”, and it belongs to nobody. and making fun of people for dancing - no matter how they dance - is fucked the fuck up anyway, disabled or not. </p> </blockquote> <p>This just in, we need to limit the music disabled people listen to! BECAUSE THEY MAY DANCE INCORRECTLY TO IT, AND THAT’S TERRIBLE. </p> <p>Like, what the fuck? Is that supposed to be the ‘grounding’ comment on this post?</p> <p>&ldquo;Okay, hold on guys, it’s terrible that it turns out these are disabled kids, but they can’t dance correctly to this music like a lot of white people. Easy to make that mistake, right? Let’s just not let disabled people listen to it. We only want to make fun of fully <em>abled</em> white people, so we need to make sure they are the only ones fucking up the correct way to dance!”</p> <p>Story time: my Dad is a big Scottish music figure in Australia. </p> <p>When he can, he and his band perform at a festival called Awakenings, held specifically for mentally disabled people of all ages. It’s the highlight for many of the attendees year. There’s arts, crafts, music and all sorts of great workshops designed to give developmentally disabled children and adults fun and a way to express themselves. </p> <p>Music is the one that works best. By leaps and bounds, it works best. </p> <p>The looks on their faces when they get to see a live band, just for them, is amazing. It gets them moving, it gets them talking, it gets them singing! Music can be the only outlet for some of the attendees.</p> <p>But none of them know how to dance either Irish or Scottish dances, so I suppose I should tell my Dad to pack it the fuck in because they can’t dance a proper fucking dance? They can’t dance to this cultural music properly, so no more entertainment for them? <em>Fuck that.</em><em><br/></em></p> <p>What line of reasoning is being used here to make this the priority in this situation? For fuck sake, before even being disabled, they are fucking children. They can dance however they fucking want on that alone, thank you very much. </p> <p>But, listen, I’ll compromise. Next time I see someone without either Irish or Scottish heritage try and join in a <span>Cèilidh</span><span>, I’ll call Michael Flatley and tell him to shove his foot so far up their arse it rends them in two, alright? </span></p></blockquote> <p>@yungclo you really need to make fun of a race of people that badly that you want to make sure disabled people don’t listen to music they like so you don’t accidentally make fun of them? That’s what it fucking feels like you’re trying to say.</p></blockquote> <p>Fucked up</p></blockquote> <p>This whole situation is fucked</p></blockquote>
