Well just today in New York City a senior officer of the MTA Transit 
Police was accused of  ordering the officers in his command to  hassle 
and arrest blacks and Latinos for fare evasion and to allow whites and 
Chinese much greater leeway. Nothing has been proven but the accusation 
was made.

>Got any stats to show tha blacks disproportionately do this, especially after normalizing for class and geography? Otherwise, it begins to sound like a stereotype, at best, and possibly prejudice.
