Former NBA player John Amaechi Diversity Speech

Mr. John Amaechi is the first NBA player to come out and speak his truth about his sexuality.  In this video his words are gentle but strikes a cord of the ways in which words can affect us and change the course of our lives for better or for worse. He urges that we have to be mindful of how we speak to each other and to create a respectful place for all people regardless of their race, colour, creed or sexual orientation.
