Not a Surprise

New York Minorities More Likely to Be Frisked

If you're black and Latino you are nine times more likely to be frisked by the cops than if you're white.

That means if you're white, you are nine times less likely to be frisked.

Most (white) people say, "Well, if it helps prevent crimes, then what's the problem?" As a white people, I can understand this.

But just imagine if the situation was reversed. Do you think white people would be okay with this? Something tells me, eh, not so much.
