One of the craziest things I heard about stop and frisk is that it protects New York from terrorists. This statement has two important meanings: 1 that stop and frisk has foiled some terroristic attack in New York which I’m sure would have been reported so we can dismiss this as false. 2 the only logic to this is that black and Latino men are to be considered terrorists because they are so heavily involved in crime. This of course is beyond outrageous an it only shows how blind the country has come to its racism. This link below has a great conversation from Melissa Harris-Perry’s show about the issue.
