If W. E. B. DuBois were alive today and was face with the Incarceration stats and the amount of money that was being wasted, he would think the stats were atronomical. The number of African Americans and Latinos (basically a fraction of the population) who are being stop and frisked, are basically being harassed by NYPD and that many would contributed it to pure racism. DuBois would probably relate the unfair, blatant treatment and profiling to slavery and the continued mistreatment that African Americans have sustained since the days of the “Slave Trade”. He would see no difference in what occured over 200 years ago to what is happening today. Racism is more sophistcated and covert in modern times. Dubois would believe that, In the African American and Latino’s mind, the stop and frisk for no apparent reason would be because of the dislike for their skin color. In addtion, the African American and the Latino male would regard this prejudice as the chief cause for their present unfortunate condition(s). DuBois had said in sum and substance, Most white people are quite unconscious of any such powerful feeling that the African American and the Latino male have towards their unfair and their unjust treatment by the criminal justice system. Dubois said in the Philadelphia Negro “; they (white people) regard color prejudice as the easily explicable feeling that intimate social intercourse with a lower race is not only undesirable but impracticable if our present standards of culture are to be maintained; and although they are aware that some people feel the aversion more intensely than others, they cannot see how such a feeling has much influence on the real situation or alters the social condition of the mass of Negroes”. Needless, to say the present situation with the “stop and frisk” issue, DuBois would be shocked, but not surprised that we as Americans have not progessed and or have gotten past the prejudices regarding skin color in determining police prodecures.
