D.W.B. Driving While Black --and other associated phenomena. African Americans compose 14% of the American population, but some studies indicate that African americans account for as many as 73% of all routine stops by traffic officers. This constitutes a perpetual assault on the dignity of law abiding citizens. And by extrapolation, this ratio vividly suggests why, inordinately, it is black men who become entangled in the criminal justice system. GUEST: Ronald Hampton of the National Black Police Association is a retired DC police officer of 25 years. GUEST: Robert Stewart, former DC police captain, and police chief of a town in Florida, now organizes community policing activities. GUEST: Michelle Alexander of the Racial Justice Project of the ACLU.
