Although we’ve made some progress on the equality front, do you feel as a Black female athlete that you still experience racial or gendered bias?

Of course, especially being an African-American woman being in the WNBA. Our league is the representation of the “Other.” Until we finally embraced that and understood that people are resistant to change that we decided to do things the right way because we’re supposed to [as opposed] worrying about what people are going to say. The biggest challenge we face now as a league is that people are fighting for equality for an agenda but not necessarily fighting for equality for all. You can’t say you want equality for all and then on the other foot degrade women. It doesn’t work that way. That’s a continuous fight in 2019 and our jobs are to make it better. It’s not going to go away but we can make things better.
