"Nobody racially profiles." —Mike Bloomberg

But does he love you back?"There is this business, there's one newspaper and one news service, they just keep saying, 'Oh it's a disproportionate percentage of a particular ethnic group. That may be, but it's not a disproportionate percentage of those who witnesses and victims describe as committing the murder. In that case, incidentally, I think we disproportionately stop whites too much and minorities too little."
—This is in response to the City Council not doing his bidding this week. So yes. Mike Bloomberg is OUT OF HIS MIND.

To be fair, Mr. Bloomberg can't even SEE race. He'd have no way to tell.

"The Mayor’s office reached out to Politicker to provide the racial breakdown of murder suspects, which they said were more than 90 percent black or Latino. In contrast, 87 percent of stops are black or Latino. Whites are 9 percent of stops and 7 percent of murder suspects."

Is there any truth to this claim from Bloomberg? Possibly, many whites are likely committing the murders, but the police are arresting blacks and Latino suspects instead. Is that the working theory?

@Lockheed Ventura Even if it's true, it's not as if (likely anywhere even remotely near) 100% of the minorities stopped are wanted for murder investigations. 80-90% of those stopped by Stop-and-Frisk are totally innocent (, only 0.2% of those stopped have a gun on them. So even if you can justify the profiling based on crime statistics, stop-and-frisk is still ridiculously unproductive in terms of how many stops result in arrests.

He said this out loud? With his mouth?
