“It is a wrenching question with vast social and political significance: What role does race play when police stop and search motorists? Stanford University researchers said Monday they have found evidence that black and Latino drivers face a double standard and that police require far less suspicion to search them than their white counterparts.”

Duh!!! In what year, decade or century of American history hasn’t this been true!!!?!?!?
