    An “own goal,” an “unforced error” and a “foot-in-mouth gaffe” are some of the terms being used to describe Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s controversial remark about stop-and-frisk uttered on his radio show last Friday. He told his audience that he believed, “We disproportionately stop whites too much and minorities too little.”
    With 685,724 people stopped in 2011 and 533,042 last year—90 percent of whom were Black or Latino, and with only a 10 percent arrest rate—Bloomberg determined that it is the 9 percent of stopped whites who are being targeted, while the number of people of color who are stopped should be higher.

    but lets be honest, this generation has created no organizations no movements and no leadership; so yeah why arent enough Black active about this here or active about the school closings in Chicago, and Phillie, or the poverty in Cali, or justice for Trayvon in Florida? I each of these states there is only some old dude or sister past 60 leading a march or protest, so yeah, you are right were is there any movement anywhere?

    And they don't trust the organizations that have been there.

    No guts, no glory!

    Answers these questions and nothing else.
    Who lives in the neighborhoods most shootings happen?
    Are you against Stop and Frisk?
    If not, then what PREVENTATIVE measures would you suggest in order to decrease shootings?
    And please be adult about it.

    These same questions got for the original thread poster.

    I am not a regionalist brother, we did that and got results! I could sit here and brag about NYC all day, Black folks from all over the world come here to visit, and one can go for tens of miles all over East Flatbush and Flatbush and see Black owned homes and businesses! And these areas are pure Black ungentrified!

    As you know I dont play that what are you doing! I ask what can we do! If someone is catching hell in Compton we should all help, if someone is going through ish in Phillie we should all help, if someone gets cut in Detroit we all bleed and should collectively from all 50 states help!

    After Stop and Frisk Trial Ends, Feds Support NYPD Oversight

    Following the conclusion of the Federal trial of the NYPD’s Stop and Frisk, the Justice Department filed a statement with the court in support of independent oversight of any NYPD structural changes, according to the NY Times.
    “The experience of the United States in enforcing police reform injunctions teaches that the appointment of an independent monitor is a critically important asset,” read part of the statement from the Justice Department.
