Eric Paschall calls out racist lady for profiling him
Golden State Warriors rookie Eric Paschall was recently racially profiled by a white lady at his apartment building.
The Warriors forward took to Twitter to voice his disgust.
I just had a white lady in the apartment building I live in telI me that I don’t live here! Being profiled at its finest! This is the world we live in!

This just goes to show you that money and fame can’t help players escape racism. It’s clear that racial injustices in America are still prevalent.
Hopefully, this ignorant lady in Paschall’s apartment building gets disciplined for her actions.
Since the Warriors had the worst record in the NBA before Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert’s positive coronavirus test forced the NBA to suspend play, the team wasn’t invited to Orlando for the “bubble” games.
However, the Warriors should be playoff contenders again in 2020-21 with Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green and Andrew Wiggins leading the charge.
In what was a terrible season for the Warriors in 2019-20, Paschall’s play was one of the bright spots. He averaged 14.0 points, 4.6 rebounds and 2.1 assists in 60 games while shooting 49.7 percent from the field, 28.7 percent from beyond the arc and 77.4 percent from the free-throw line.
Under the mentorship of Green, Paschall could turn into an All-Star player for the Dubs down the line. For now, though, the Warriors just need him to continue to grow on both sides and not worry too much about his points per game average since Curry, Thompson and Wiggins can handle the scoring burden for the next couple of years.
