Oh, and people with disabilities. I never thought of them as minorities before, but after taking these classes at CSU East Bay, I realize just how screwed over they get by everything. In the EU, seven of the 27 countries (Austria, Finland, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden and the UK) grant full voting rights to people with disabilities (learning disabilities and mental health problems). During the early part of the 20th century, developmentally disabled Americans were forcibly sterilized and prohibited from marriage (thanks, eugenics!), and those laws are still on the books (and thank YOU, Michigan!). Actually, more than 30 states prohibit marriage. Which is like saying that if you have a learning disability, no matter how mild or severe (and who draws the line, anyway?), you are deemed incapable of love, lust, or affection and cannot make the decision to be in a long-term relationship.
Now let's sit back and think of all the people with Down's who are acting. I can think of three off the top of my head - Becky from "Glee," Corky from "Life Goes On," and that one woman that voiced the girlfriend with Down's from "Family Guy."
People with mental health problems are often cast as villains, when in reality you are infinitely more likely to be assaulted by someone drunk or on drugs than by anyone with schizophrenia.
Physical disabilities - almost no little person has been cast in roles without that role being one that specifically class for a little person or one that makes fun of little people.
Megan Fox's club thumb was photoshopped away during a Super Bowl commercial.
People in wheelchair's are treated as people to be pitied. Even Artie on "Glee" is constantly told how "brave" he is and hey, let's all try using wheelchairs so we understand how hard and terrible it is to be confined like this! In reality, people in wheelchairs really fucking resent that.
The list goes on.
