I'm Molly, a typical sushi, makeup, and fashion loving millennial girl who just so happens to be blind! I was diagnosed with Retinitis Pigmentosa at just 4 years old and began public speaking at age 5. I started just doing motivational speaking, but now I make videos and even model! Even though I can’t see, I know that there are bright spots in everything we face. Let’s find them together. 💕

  • Posting this video makes me feel very vulnerable but I feel like it's an important conversation to have. So many people, for so many different reasons, are discriminated against daily and it is something that can deeply affect you emotionally. You are not alone.

    • This absolutely broke my heart. Discrimination, for whatever the reason, is one of the most ugly and disgusting things we can do as people. I hope this video makes its way into peoples lives that have been ugly to others for who they are and that your story opens their eyes. Keep spreading your stories and empowerment. This world needs more beautiful souls like yourself.

  • Honestly it's like people does she look like a human? Yes? Then treat her like one! She's not an invalid, she's not incapable. She is human has a brain, has emotions can be upset and hurt by rudeness just like humans with sight can. So for the love of god treat her like a human. This doesn't just go for Molly, but for anyone who is disabled. Just because someone is disabled doesn't make them any less human they deserve the same respect and decency a "normal" (what is normal anyway) does. Honestly I watch these ones, because I have to (on your channel and several others) as a reminder of reality but I hate seeing you cry it tears me up to see it. I hope for your sake and for the sake of all those who are disabled or not of society's "norm" that someday we wont need a reminder of reality because reality will be just as cruelty free as our own isolated bubbles. Love you keep grinding, and keep pushing the anti-bullying message you are the perfect powerhouse to deliver that message!

  • It isn't the fact that he is a guide dog, it's the fact that he is a dog in general. Have you ever stopped to think that maybe that Uber or Lyft driver is allergic to dogs? Or maybe they don't want the dog hair in their vehicle. I dont think its that deep. That aren't discriminating against you, they just don't want a dog in their vehicle. 🙄 next

  • So upsetting to hear how you’re being discriminated against just cause of your disability. It’s so irritating to see average people act as though they want the same advantages as disabled people by wanting the same freedoms when taking their dogs everywhere (especially fake service dogs), which causes problems for the disabled who can’t leave their guide dogs at home. Its sickening to hear that people give you such a hard time because you have a guide dog. That should not be happening. Im so sorry.

Now after three years and two dogs it just isn't worth it. It isn't worth getting physically ill over the stress and anxiety it causes. Now if I know I'll have a problem with a place I avoid it there is one local farmer's market that refuses service dogs period. I tried getting In once and never will try again.

  • Always remember: People are not against you they are just for themselves. People, kids get bitten by dogs often with horrible, horrible outcomes, injuries and scars visible and invisible. It sucks when an uber driver is not sticking to the rules but that person is a human too with flaws and prejudices. Don't get me wrong but uber itself is a terrible exploitative service in ifself. You don't have to take my word for it just read it up. No pension, no insurance etc. driving cabs out of business. Maybe take a cab where you can actually arrange everything (I have a dog) on the phone beforehand. I work in a line of business where most people have no idea how much time it takes for me to finish a job. So they assume so much bullshit and on top of it feel like I charge too much. It is sooo exhausting and frustrating but...in the end you CAN NOT sum things it. For me it's the 88th customer not respecting my work. But for him it's the first contact with a person like me and he has no idea and no reference. I HAVE to treat every customer seperately and not like "you are the 10th person this month disrespecting me I won't have that anymore! No swallow the full amount of my anger and wrath!". You can't. I know that's the hardest thing to do but don't "enherit" the mistakes of others on the the next person. I know my business comparison can't be directly compared with what you struggle with but I tried to make a general point. Anyway thanks for sharing! Much love

  • Are service animals licensed? It seems like some, not all but some of the refusal is about unruly animals being declared service animals. Not that it would solve the problem but it might alleviate it if service animals were licensed and had to be renewed like drivers licenses. The process should be 100% funded by the state. Drivers and restaurant owners would know that licensed animals would not destroy, damage, etc. To me it seems logical that animals that are allowed into places that pets are not: animals that have a job would have to be trained to a high level of obedience and have a professional demeanor. If a person wants those privileges then they would be required to have that kind of training for their animal and it would have to pass an initial test. Then later pass a bi-yearly quicker refresh. I know it wouldn’t solve every situation because there are a lot of ignorant or horrible people. It would create that line between service animals and pets. What am I missing?

  • Thank you for sharing! I think it is a really important point that disability discrimination is often relegated to a “back seat” to other forms of discrimination. As someone who has experienced a fair amount of religious discrimination, bias, and hatred, I related to a lot of the points you made, and I was really glad to see someone speaking up about this issue. If you’re ever interested in talking more about it, it could be cool to see another video discussing this. I didn’t see a place to DM you, but I’d be interested to discuss more the dynamics of discrimination and their effects on our communities.

  • On top of everything you’ve mentioned, discrimination within the disabled community is a HUGE problem as well that needs to change. I’m a 22 year old woman and I’ve had back problems since I was a child. Years of extremely labor intensive jobs, sleeping in the floor, and not finding a doctor who would LISTEN to me and HELP me led me to where I am now. There’s days I cannot move, where I can’t get out of bed. I have to have my fiancé help me get to and from the bathroom on those days. There’s days I can’t dress, shower, or even eat because the slightest movement in any part of my body sends shooting pain through my spine. I’ve been dealing with it so long I’ve gotten to a point where I’ve become almost numb and can push through most of the pain, and that’s the problem. Because of how young I am and how “able bodied” I appear people within the disabled community refuse to believe me, listen to me, or help me. So many times I’ve been told I’m just seeking attention or that “I need to get more exercise”, and of course “you’re too young to be disabled”. THERE IS NO AGE ON ANY TYPE OF DISABILITY! There’s no reason doctors send me out of their office telling me to work out more, there’s no reason a woman with Lupus told me “it’s not a real problem, get over it”. The worst part is at some point I’ve started to believe it all. That my problems are inferior to those worse off, that I do need to move more, that it is all in my head and I’m doing it to myself. But none of that is true and it’s absolutely ridiculous that my own community has pushed me to feeling this way. How can we as a community expect the world to see us in the same light as them when we can’t even accept each other?

I hope one day you can get a car, that’s something me and my family wish we could get too but my whole family is blind with the same condition. We use public bus everywhere and there’s still discrimination there as well for being blind. I know another blind lady who always gets up for my mom and I get so mad cause why does the other blind lady have to get up for a fellow blind lady when there’s other people who could. It drives me bonkers but hopefully one day it can be better for our community molly.

  • I love how Ms. Burke is extremely confident about herself, and I love the fact that she puts herself out there as an independent blind person. I am sorry that she has been discriminated against by so many drivers because of her guide dog. I recommend this video for blind people who are facing discrimination and drivers of UBER and Lift. However, I believe that in this video, Ms. Burke could sometimes come across as too confident, and I found that she was boasting a little bit. Also, even though drivers should never discriminate against people with guide dogs, having a guide dog is indeed a choice and not a need unlike what Ms. Burke said in her video. As a blind person, you can choose to use either a cane or a guide dog.

On my way to hospital ive orded Uber and driver said that he wont let me in, because i will make his sit dirty. Moreover, he hasnt canceled the trip, charged me and gave me 1 star. I was furious, after a month of fighting with uber they gave me 10 backs coupon for next ride. Such a humiliation of a human being costed 10 backs. Im sorry for everyone who must face any kind of discrimination occasionally or daily.

It's not like your doing anything wrong, sheesh I will never understand some people. As a disabled person myself, I agree that no one talks about us very much. We can hide and seem normal but were not. I felt that too when you said they can just live their life, I haven't lived a life or 'normal' and not worrying in years, since I was a kid to be honestly. I started to get sick in my teens so I grew up on worrying about everything and it gives me anxiety everyday.

  • I'm honestly shocked whenever I hear of places denying a service animal. Thinking it's fake is one thing, but I would never question if the dog is in "uniform" and behaving the way Gallop does when he's working that it's a service dog. We can't even question it at my store once the person says it's service dog (though, I'm pretty sure most are fake. Not once have I ever seen one of those dogs with a vest on and though now I know they act like normal dogs while not working, they still tend to behave more unruly than you would expect). One time there was a woman actually dragging her dog into the store...-_- One question that I do have though is, if the dog is not working, do they still have the same rights?

The number of times I’ve been told that a business is wheelchair accessible only to show up and have there be step that I can’t get over or around is astounding. I also have severe PTSD for which I have and should use a service dog but don’t because she was attacked by a “service dog” also the number of time people have claimed that she is fake or that I don’t actually need her so now just don’t take her even though I should.

    • I just read your comment, Debra Townsend. I needed my oxygen cannula to breathe when I was younger, due to a breathing condition, yet would get dirty looks, accusations, and questions when I’d go out to get groceries. I also have to carry an inhaler, due to said breathing condition, yet I’m accused of not having a disability, because of course, no one can see it. I get it, it’s frustrating and tiring to have to constantly defend yourself and face discrimination day in and day out. I’ve been there too, and still go through it. I know my experiences are different than yours, however, there are times when you have to ignore everybody’s reactions and do what you need to, to function in life. If your PTSD is so severe that you need a service dog with you to live your life, then you retrain and take your service dog, advocate for yourself, and screw what others think.

  • Discrimination is discrimination. Thank you for being brave enough to say this! I feel like as a white woman I'm not allowed to be offended or speak up if I'm discriminated against because others had it worse. It's so empowering to hear.

  • Molly, You are such a role model for everyone. I love how you are so open, unfiltered and positive. And something needs to change in the world until people understand that people who need accommodations are PEOPLE, and those needs and accommodations are valid. I’m sorry that people treat you this way and discriminate against you because of their own wants, that they view as more important than your needs and feelings.

  • I think you should get a car, because what do you do when you don't get what you should? Stop paying, make them go out of business so they are more kind. If all people did that or something like that, the world would be a better place.

  • You should report the drivers that refuse to drive you because of your guide dog. I get discriminated against in different ways and it really isn’t easy. But the best thing to do is to work on changing laws and educating people so there is less ignorance and discrimination. I do think that it is a good idea to buy a car and have your mom drive you around just to give you some peace of mind and at least one area that you won’t have to deal with discrimination. 💗 And I totally understand what you are going through. I am sending prayers and positive thoughts your way! 💕🙏🏼😘

  • That is sad 😔 and I’m sure it has a lot to do with people who have fake guide or service dogs. I know a few different people who try to get into restaurants with their fake guide dogs. I’m so sorry but there need to be laws to protect you.

  • This breaks my heart. I know what it's like to have to hide half myself from the rest of the world on a daily basis, however, I can do this much easier then if I was trying to do that and have a huge black adorable doggo too. No one should be pushed to the point that even talking about what you're ABOUT to talk about brings you to tears xoxox

  • ❤️❤️❤️ Thank you Molly ❤️ thank you for fighting for us ❤️ I believe you. It can be so hard when people look at you and don't "see" disability, so they automatically write you off. I've had trouble asking for what I need in school and the work place, but I'm getting better at it. Thank you for sharing ❤️ and standing up for yourself and all of us ❤️ Sending all the love, courage, and prayers! Our equality is just as important

  • Ridesharing apps should have a description for certain riders (that requires specific documentation) that provides precise information about them having a disability and/or legitamant service animal. The fake service animals are disgusting and should be banned. I LOVE my dog and would love to take her everywhere but it is not a necessity. Some people are genuinely afraid of dogs or allergic to their dander, and I understand that. So, I just think there should be a prerequisite for individuals like Molly to close the gap between the fakers and true people needing their service animals to accompany them.

  • I am NOT a service dog user. And I dont take my dog in lifts, but I do understand being offended for your pet. I go on walks with her in my neighborhood and etc. and she is part pit, so they typically avoid her (she is EXTREMELY friendly and tries to jump on/greet everyone, we are working on that). But the disposition that she will bite or attack them, before even getting nearby does bother me. So in that sense, I understand your point.

  • I'm so sorry that you are often treated so unfairly by lift/uber drivers Molly. I can't imagine how stressful it is everytime you and your mom need an uber. That's stress you can do without. I hope you do get a car then the two of you won't have to deal with this. Sending you huge hugs.

  • I feel like in the Uber app you should let you declare you have a service dog like I would imagine wheelchair accessible vehicles should be an option. just so they know if they can do that job, that way if they are allergic or have PTSD from dogs they do not pick that job. Then whoever has a service animal will be less likely to be rejected and the driver will know what to expect. That alone should solve many problems and if then a driver refuses to allow the passenger and service animal he should be suspended for a period of time from work.

  • I am so sorry that you have gone through this. I totally want to see a series where you get a car. I have lived for years with relying on others to get anywhere I wanted or needed to go. Getting a car gave me so much freedom. It is so wrong what you have gone through. It probably won't mean anything but I am praying for you and everyone who shares these experiences. It is so wrong.
