Police: Are They Prejudiced Predators? A short essay by corbin christopher

“Nearly nine out of 10 people ‘stopped and frisked’ under a controversial New York Police Department policy in 2011 were African-American or Hispanic, the NYPD report said” (Iabonl).

“The interaction of poverty and trial outcomes could help explain why, for example, while black defendants represent about 35% of drug arrests, 46% of those convicted of drug crimes are black” (Farbota).

Black people are statistically more likely to get convicted on drug related charges based on the sole fact of their skin color. Also, since black people cannot move out of impoverished neighborhoods, they will still be targeted by police.
