Why are VRS Providers funding white deaf filmmakers?

Veteran Deaf Filmmaker of Color has a message about all Video Relay Service (VRS) Providers supporting deaf white privilege filmmakers. A couple months ago, I have involved the people in the Deaf community to participate in an online forum via social media and asked three questions: 1. List all Deaf/ASL-related films that were sponsored by VRS companies either in the past or currently. 2. How many of these films were made by Deaf People of Color or professional Deaf Filmmakers of Color? 3. How many of these films addressed issues regarding Diversity, Intersectionalities and People of Color? I look forward to receiving responses. Any negative or hateful comments will be removed. There is no room for that. Thank you! What is VRS?
