By 1999, the <a href="http://www.nytimes.com/">New York Times</a> was writing an average of three articles on racial profiling a week. The state of North Carolina took note, passing a law requiring police officers to fill out a form including information on the motorist's race at each traffic stop. More than ten years and 13 million traffic stops later, experts have analyzed the data. Thu, 23 Aug 2012 16:04:00 +0000 Frank Stasio & Shawn Wen 3956 at http://wunc.org
