"A lot of blacks have accused me of perpetuating stereotypes, and I think there's a fine line between perpetuating something and questioning something. I like to get as close to it as possible in order, I guess, to create that tension, to evoke thought and to have people question how they deal with these images."

- Michael Ray Charles
