many deafies play the race card by pointing it out "Oh it was invented by a
hearing woman!"

Have u spoken to someone at CSD Riverside yet about introducing Written ASL
etc? Ask if they can do a wee research project or something like that - you
need to get your feet inside one of the great deaf schools of the USA such
as Riverside, Fremot, Frederick so on.

Any deaf schools in San Diego?
