As someone who rides the NYC Subway daily, I’m happy for the system to be as safe as possible. But I’ve been ambivalent about the subway bag searches from the beginning. And my skepticism was only heightened (deepened?) today with the publication of a study about the subway searches showing that 88% of the people stopped are Black or Latino, even though less than half of subway riders are Black or Latino.

Nice to know the “random” searches are working so…randomly.
