awesome show!

This episode is about a family who struggles to find their son J.J, who has cerebral palsy the accommodations he needs. This episode was funny, Witty and expressed how ignorant people can be towards disability etiquette. J.J is not the only character who struggles with adversity his family does as well. Their family has been constantly moving around to try and accommodate J.J but his brother struggles with constantly moving around and feels neglected. J. J's mother comes off very strong and dedicated to her son. The principle is taken back from the mom's aggressiveness but she has to be like that in order for J.J to get what he needs. This episode sent a powerful message to its viewers that everyone should be treated as a human and not "trash". When other characters first met J.J they made him feel so different than everyone else and treated him differently. I would defiantly recommend others to watch this episode to get an inside on how some people with disabilities are treated and the adversities they have to overcome. This episode conveyed the message that no matter who you are, or what kind of disability you have you should be treated like a human and given respect. In the beginning of the episode, the mom parked in a handicap spot and as soon as she did another lady with a pass immediately said something to her. All Maya had to do was simply open up her van for her son to be visible and that immediately made the other woman quite. J. J's mother had high hopes for this school and was immediately turned off when she saw the ramp the school provided for her son, when in fact it was really a garbage ramp and not for children with disabilities (e.g. 07:50-8:40). This just showed how ignorant the principle was to believe that a parent would be okay with this kind of "accommodation". To prove how disrespectful this ramp was, Maya played a game called "human or trash" to prove her point. This episode demonstrated how the school failed to meet J. J's needs. However, the school did provide J.J with an aid to help him around school so he would not have to be in a special Ed class anymore. This aid allowed J.J to have a voice and to not rely on his mother's voice. When J.J entered his classroom, this scene immediately demonstrated inspirational porn (e.g. 09:38-10:37). His teacher kept repeating "he's here, he's here" as if J.J was a celebrity and had the rest of the students clapping for J.J. Then the teacher had the students stand up and clap and as soon as they did that he immediately said "oh god, he can't stand how insensitive" and had everyone sit back down. This teacher was extremely ignorant to disability etiquette and how you are supposed to treat someone. He did not think before he spoke. One of the students came up to J.J and held up a poster it said "J.J for president". J.J did not understand why he should be president because no one even knew him yet, and the teacher response "because you are an inspiration". According to (Young, 2014) people think that if you are disabled you are exceptional. Inspirational porn makes people think that no matter how bad my life is I could be that person. It is supposed to make you feel better about your life. What people don't understand is that these people are just doing ordinary activities using their bodies to the best of their ability. It is okay to want to exercise more so you, yourself become healthier but it is not okay to use people with disabilities as your own motivation (Young, 2024). This episode effectively showed how some people do not have any disability etiquette. Hopefully after viewers watch this episode they will be more aware on how to treat others with respect.
