NYPD: Whites More Likely to Carry Drugs & Guns Than People of Color
- The likelihood a stop of an African American New Yorker yielded a weapon was half that of white New Yorkers stopped. The NYPD uncovered a weapon in one out every 49 stops of white New Yorkers. By contrast, it took the Department 71 stops of Latinos and 93 stops of African Americans to find a weapon.
i wonder why Bloomberg made this blunt racist claim:
Because he is and always was a puppet, is it any surprise that a rich white man getting his cut from disproportionately sending black/brown men to prison is gonna say or do anything against that and risk losing that cut? And the new mayor aint doing jack shit about this either, he’s already made that obvious. and are we gonna act surprised about that too?
Just to reiterate, folks.
1 out of 49 stops of white people yielded a weapon
1 out of 79 stops of Latino people yielded a weapon
1 out of 93 stops of black people yielded a weapon
That means that out of the people stopped, white people were almost 1.6 x more likely to have a weapon than a Latino person, and white people were almost twice as likely to have a weapon as black people.
