Item description for The Bad Cripple (CounterPunch) by William J. Peace...

Eighteen percent of Americans-that's nearly fifty-four million-say they have some form of disability, yet this "minority" is not visible on Main Street USA. William J. Peace-author, activist, professor, and the bad cripple in question-contends that, although legislation exists, the segregation that occurs is due to the denial of these people's basic civil and human rights. Issues of accessibility could easily be solved with existing technology, and therefore should not continue to be a problem. The barrier that remains to a more equal existence is bigotry, a learned behavior that Peace, along with a growing movement for disability rights, aims to change.
