ICAA News and Views, plus speical guest, one of the creators of the movement "Cameras in Special Needs Classrooms" will join us. Then we will have a refreshingly honest discussion about media commentary surrounding the recent Colorado tragedy, which includes Joe Scarborough of MSNBC, claiming the alleged gunman must be somewhere on the "autism scale". Oh, My! For the record, here is the ICAA public statement: "The recent comments made by Joe Scarborough were a sad yet strong illustration of the prevailing ignorance and bigotry in our culture regarding disabilities, specifically autism. The ICAA has reached out to Mr. Scarborough through our ICAA Radio program, offering a unique opportunity to issue an apology, retraction or other statement to our community. Mr. Scarborough seems to be an otherwise thoughtful individual, who has been awarded authority and opportunity to voice his opinions to millions on a global scale. We hope that Mr. Scarborough will become better educated about autism, and gain some perspective. The marginalization of autistic people, and people with other disabilities, is equally outrageous to the marginalization of people with racial or other differences. Mr. Scarborough and others in the media would do well to join us in our efforts to make the world a better place, rather than continue as a part of the problem."
