30. Not if you're in a minority neighborhood. Who are you gonna stop...

Who are you gonna stop in a black neighborhood but black people? Who are you gonna stop in a Puerto Rican neighborhood except Puerto Ricans?

Not enough information in the OP to show racism.

Example: If they are stopping and frisking in a white neighborhood, and 80% of who they stop and frisk there are black, and most of hte crimes in that neighborhood are committed by folks who live in the neighborhood...THAT would tend to show racism. But just percentages of who they stop, by race, doesn't say much. You have to know more.

And the chart also doesn't differentiate between stopping & frisking generally, and doing that for reasonable cause.

It could be racism. The stats alone don't prove that, though.
