Democrat presidential candidate and former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg said in 2013 that his city’s “Stop and Frisk” policy actually targets whites too much and minorities too little, considering anecdotal crime statistics. Bloomberg railed against a particular news service that was badgering him on the issue.
“They just keep saying, oh, it’s a disproportionate percentage of a particular ethnic group. That may be, but it’s a non-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,” Bloomberg said in a June 28, 2013 interview on WOR’s John Gambling radio program.
“It’s exactly the reverse of what they say. All right. I don’t know where they went to school, but they certainly didn’t take a math course. Or a logic course!,” Bloomberg said.
