Letter from the Little People

Colin,

Big fan here of what you’re doing, love your book, love your videos. I was just curious if you’ve ever heard of the abuse that little people, specifically ones that have achondroplasia, are subjected to from the fellas and their lovely ladies.

I have a nephew with achondroplasia who has been the target of this type of ridicule from these groups of people, and let me tell you from experience when I’ve been with him, it’s absolutely disgusting. Pointing, jeering, laughing hysterically, right in his face with no remorse, and it seems the more or them that are around at the time the worse it is.

My family has had to leave public functions, amusement parks, and just a few years ago almost a dangerous confrontation at a little people’s convention in Nashville TN. I never hear anyone talk about it, just wanted to hear your thoughts or if you have any knowledge of these things occurring, because I’ve spoken with a lot of people in the little people community and it is something that is only talked about behind closed doors, obviously for fear of being targeted as a racist of course.

It just breaks my heart, and angers me to the depths of my soul that anyone could do something like this, yet they seem to have no problem with it. Thought it might open another avenue to explore, as if you didn’t have enough already. Again, I seriously appreciate what you’re doing, please keep doing what you’re doing, you have my whole family’s support.
