ABSTRACT
The article focuses on issues concerning racial profiling by New York police. It is reported that American police forces were deliberately and unfairly singling out young minority males on the streets and roads. Law-abiding people were being harassed and even arrested for no offense worse than "driving while black." New Jersey, Maryland, and California are imposing new laws that will check police from using the stop-and-search techniques that did so much to curb crime in the 1990s. It is reported that sixty percent of the people arrested in New Jersey for drugs and weapons offenses are black.
