That's Racist Mayor Bloomberg!
During his weekly WOR-AM radio appearance, New York
King Mayor Michael Bloomberg reiterated his support for stop-and-frisk when he said this:
There is this business, there's one newspaper and one news service, they just keep saying, 'Oh it's a disproportionate percentage of a particular ethnic group,'… That may be, but it's not a disproportionate percentage of those who witnesses and victims describe as committing the murder. In that case, incidentally, I think we disproportionately stop whites too much and minorities too little.
The comments came just one day after New York City lawmakers voted to create an NYPD inspector general and other legal infrastructure to address racial profiling. Looks like the South really doesn't have the corner on old-fashioned racism.
In Part Two of a special two part #TWiBRadio, #TeamBlackness continues with a discussion about New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg's problematic stance regarding Stop and Frisk practices (16:45) and engage in the age old discussion of who would win in Open Battle: Dude Bros or Hipsters.
And this morning on #amTWiB, L.Joy, Imani, and the rest of the #TheMorningCrew unpacked last week's news when ALL THE THINGS happened.
