Rev. Al Sharpton Slams Mayor Bloomberg For Saying Stop-And-Frisk Stops Too Many Whites June 30, 2013  5:39 am

sharpton1The Rev. Al Sharpton says Mayor Michael Bloomberg must clarify his intentions on or apologize for the controversial remarks he made in defense of the New York City Police Department’s stop-and-frisk policy on his weekly radio show.

On the show Friday, Bloomberg said, “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.”

Speaking at the National Action Network in Harlem Saturday, Sharpton said the mayor’s comments were offensive.

“The tone that has been set by that remark not only polarizes the city, it gives a false sense to police that they can step over the line because it gives the implication that somehow, whites are being victimized in the city rather than the data showing that profiling is here and it needs to stop, and we do not need to play games with that,” Sharpton said.

A Bloomberg spokesman has said that those criticizing the remark are “fabricating outrage over an absolutely accurate comment.”
