Young Black and Latino Men Targeted

While Black and Latino men aged 14 through 24 only make up 4.7 percent of New York City's population, they accounted for 41.6 percent of stop-and-frisks in 2011, with 90 percent of those stops resulting in no arrest. The number of stops of young Black men exceeded the entire city population of young Black men (168,126 as compared to 158,406).
