"People ask me all the time if I’m a basketball player. And I say that I’m a painter. Then they ask me if I have a card, thinking I’m a house painter. The worst thing that can happen to anybody, not just to a black person or a woman, is that you become so frustrated with stereotypes being projected onto you that you give up."
