George Allen asks African-American reporter "what position did you play" he never played sports

NBC 4s reporter-anchor Craig Melvin is a tall African-American. Which apparently led to this exchange with former Sen. George Allen, according to Melvins Twitter account Tuesday night:

For the 2nd time in 5 months, fmr. gov. and sen candidate George Allen asks me,what position did you play? I did not a play a sport.

And were off!

3. I don't get it....is this because he of his race or because he is tall?
I'm white and 6'3" and was always the tallest kid in my classes so everyone always asked me repeatedly if I played basketball.

I'm guessing this dude has to put up with the same shit.
