NEW YORK Human rights organizations accused the New York Police Department of racial discrimination Thursday after the release of a critical study by the RAND Corporation, reports the Sing Tao Daily. The study shows that in 2006, more than 500,000 pedestrians in New York City were stopped and frisked by police, and 89 percent were people of color. Of those stopped, African Americans were 53 percent, Latinos were 29 percent and Asians were 3 percent.
