Deaf interperter at Mandela’s memorial could not

sign?

But he could dance, apparently. Moving in Not sign, but still rhythmical manner.

Seems like the non-sign-language inspired anger and some long time recriminations/frustrations by deaf communities.

Here’s a side by side example of how the signing should have been compared to how it was..

I think its also interesting that most people, including me, seem ignorant about sign language.. Ignorant in the sense that I would have thought the guy was using the correct signs, and wouldn’t have questioned it. (ie, thinking I knew something while being clueless..)
