crips w/ cameras

this is exciting to me since we've been kicking around the idea of connecting crips w/ cameras for just this reason and then putting it together in some sort of righteous documentary is evas blog (brand new)heres her intro...

"Hey, I’m Eva. I’m 26 and a recent college graduate. I like to write, to take Digital photographs, and just chill. But this blog is not about what I like. This blog is about how people treat me. You see, I am physically disabled. Actually “severely” physically disabled. I have Cerebral Palsy, which for me means I can’t walk, speak, or use muscles in traditional ways. I use a power wheelchair to get around and spell out what I want to say on a letterboard.

This blog will be videos of people treating me bizarrely. My video camera is mounted to my wheelchair (very discreetly) and I basically just press record whenever I go out and then edit the good stuff for you! I will then write my comments on the event, which is usually what was playing in my inner monologue while these insensitive people were talking. Hope you enjoy. Here’s an introduction video (no other people, sorry)."

Sadly, it took me to look at this twice to follow the word poster and her red light pen to write out the words. I M LME.
