John Amaechi had a little one-on-one with the AP today and, of course, got asked about Tim Hardaway‘s homophobic comments yesterday. Measured as always, Amaechi said that Hardaway’s words highlight our nation’s all-pervasive homophobia. He also had this to say:
I don’t need Tim’s comments to realize there’s a problem. People said that I should just shut up and go away – now they have to rethink that.
We can’t help but feel that those people want you to go away now more than ever.
