Quote of the Day…

To the parents who are suffering through the frustrations that must come with raising a child with severe autism, finding strength and patience that they never knew they had; to the college student with Asperger’s syndrome; to all those overcoming autism, You deserve medals, not disrespect. I hope you accept my sincere apology. I was instantly embarrassed that I would be ignorant enough to say something so hurtful. What makes the crime worse is that I should have known better. I have now read stories online from parents about their struggles and triumphs with raising an autistic child and I admire how incredibly strong you have to be to do so. It’s touching. It also makes what I said even more embarrassing for me. I feel real shame.

J. Cole said in an apology to those he offended for his verse in Drake’s “Jodeci Freestyle” where he calls himself “artistic” and his opponents “autistic.”

Let's talk about it!
