Add comment on:East Palo Alto Residents Ask: "Am I a Suspect?"
Latest Report on Racial Profiling
A pattern of racial traffic stops in Palo Alto is statistically clear. At a *Rally Against Racial Profiling* on November 9 Goro Mitchell, East Palo Alto activist and Planning Commission member, said that 56 percent of all traffic stops for "vehicular failure", such as tail or brake lights not working, are for cars driven by African Americans or Latinos. Two young men, one Latino and one African American, have created a T-shirt to draw attention to this injustice. Story, photos by R. Robertson
