If you stop minorities a disproportionate amount of the time they will appear to commit a disproportionate number of crimes. If you only stop

As it is the right of every citizen to safely walk down any street at any time of day or night and feel safe.instead go to the wrong street in any
ghetto and do somthing as simple as wear the wrong color and your liable to take a beating etc.. this is madness. Who would want this kind of
environment around their kids?
Now I dont mean that it is all black folks, as should be obvious, it is just a large percentage of them in select regions of the country.
I believe reverend King would be quite put off by the behaviors of some of his black brothers and sisters. I am just glad he didnt live to see the
state of those he fought so hard for, and paid dearly to ensure they have an equal shot ar freedom on all levels.
