Mom Asks World to Stop Using R-Word

A colleague shared this with me the other day. I've posted Max's story before but what is really troubling are the comments. Truly disturbing. Hoping you'll share your thoughts.

Max Seidman is "a kid with special needs who kicks butt -- and who deserves your respect." So says his mother, who wants you to help banish the derogatory term "retard" from our vernacular. Before producing this video in support of a Special Olympics campaign (called Spread The Word To End The Word), Ellen Seidman had called out dozens of Twitter users, to mixed results, for their casual use of the R-word.
