You Must Play Basketball?

I’m a 6 foot 2, slender black man. I write books, make songs and do a lot of different stuff. Yet the first question people ask when they see me is “Do you play basketball?” While I do play basketball, and I do enjoy it, it becomes annoying when people ask me if my I play basketball. For gawd’s sake their are a lot of basketball players that are shorter than I am and are way better than I am. Why. Why? WHY!!!!!!!!

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Plead the Fifth.”

I am not who I say I am but who my writing says I am; my characters define me. Like puppets in a play, they tell you who pulls the strings. I'm not who I say I am; I'm who you think I am.
