Hate Speech- John Amaechi

Mar 28, 2013 by

Good Thursday!  I wanted to share a second, less confrontational, way to introduce the topic of hate speech in our classes.  John Amaechi is one of the most gifted speakers I know and this speech is incredibly powerful.  I encourage you to take 30 minutes and watch it.  Perhaps this could be an introduction to a discussion on how we use words to build up or tear down others.  Sometimes students may not think this type of speech happens any more- this would be a natural introduction to yesterday’s resource- www.nohomophobes.com.  You can click the image below or the link above for this interesting, powerful, and inspirational talk.


John can be followed on Twitter- @johnamaechi
