DemocracyNow.org - At the march opposing the NYPD's stop-and-frisk policy in New York City, we speak to community organizer and activist Thenjiwe McHarris. "Young people of color ... cannot walk down the street without being profiled," McHarris says. "It's not just [police] stopping them and asking them questions, but they're stopping them and communicating a very powerful message to them, which is: You are black, you are brown, you are a person of color. You are in a city where you live and there is something really wrong with you. And that hurts."
