Web Video Breaks Down Racial Bias in Stop-and-Frisk

This Week in Blackness creator Elon James White and emcee Jasiri X released a music video last week warning of the dangers stop-and-frisk policies present for Black men walking down the street in major cities across America. In one line of the track, which was done in the vein of Notorious B.I.G.'s "Ten Crack Commandments," Jasiri X rhymes, "Number five, never talk back when they talk smack. Even if they call you a n---a man, be the bigger man."
