One thought on “5 Years After Ferguson Protests, Black Missouri Drivers Stopped More Often Than Whites

  1. How about reporting that is more socially responsible and factual? The headline for this story is obviously meant to be attention-getting, but it also holds the potential to fan the fires of social unrest. Why not tell us the percentage of people being stopped relative to their race — instead of absolute numbers, which are bound to be higher for any “race” that is overrepresented in a particular area. (Also, why not recognize that race is a social construct according to many, and not a physical feature?) More importantly, tell us WHY people are stopped. The racism implied in your headline may be non-existent if the facts are examined more closely. But with what you tell us, it is impossible to say.
