It was a simple enough question, "Howyoudoing....?" in that brooklyn drawl.
The answer spinning around in my head was "well I'm torn, on one hand I hate the obtuse racial profiling you are are demonstrating on this fine Sunday afternoon but on the other hand I appreciate your efforts to police and clean up marcus garvey park of drugs and anti social behaviour...."
I couldn't think of anything so I just said "cool" and kept on walking my dog.
The policeman went back to watching his partner frisking the 3 black youths they had lined up against the wall. Yes I didn't see why they chose these 3 particular people to stop and frisk, I'm sure the police personally had a good reason to be doing so but it didn't remove the 'hate' in my throat for a society that allows 3 people hanging out in a park to be searched and for the middle age white dude to just walk on by.
