Danielle in New York, NY said: A white police officer stopped a Black man. Witnessed by myself and two white co-workers outside of work. When my co-workers and I noticed this misconduct the white police officer approached us aggressively and said WHAT?! We didn't say a word
Nishell in Yonkers, NY said: I live in Harlem with my boyfriend, along with his roommate from Senegal. His roommate is black, and has been stopped and frisked multiple times and arrested once for having a small amount of weed on him. My boyfriend and I are white, and have never been stopped and frisked while out together. However, my boyfriend was stopped and searched by police while hanging out with his roommate in Times Square. Neither of them had anything on them. I am convinced there is subtle racism at play here, as my boyfriend's roommate is from Senegal and had no prior issues with the law before coming to America.
Edward in Brooklyn, NY said: I am African-American and a senior citizen and I have also been stopped. The reason I was given was that the police officer was having trouble seeing if my seat belt was on. Go figure?
