Warriors forward Eric Paschall says he was the target of racial profiling in his apartment building last night, when a white tenant accused him of not living there.

Though Paschall didn’t reveal where the incident occurred, the rookie standout moved into a San Francisco apartment close to Chase Center last year. To make an ugly incident even more disappointing, Paschall is on the record as saying that he felt extremely welcomed in his new digs after moving in, as pointed out by NBC Sports Bay Area.

“One thing I definitely like about it is the weather — it’s not too cold,” Paschall said to radio play-by-play man Tim Roye. “I’ve realized everybody is a lot nicer out here. Everybody says hello. I remember in my apartment building, people were just like, ‘How was your day?’

“I’m like whoa. This is weird for me, especially (being) from the East Coast because everybody is so uptight. But it’s really cool. I like the Bay a lot in terms of the atmosphere.”
