In Center City, police stops are down, but blacks are still targeted more, especially indoors

Muhammad noted that police were called within a couple of minutes of Rashon Nelson and Donte Robinson entering the Starbucks store at 18th and Spruce. He said the incident highlights the larger problem of racial profiling.

    Analysis: Blacks stopped at much higher rate indoors in Center City - Philly
    The controversial arrest of two black men at a Center City Starbucks last weekend has reignited the debate about racial profiling by police and businesses in Philadelphia and around the country. An Inquirer and Daily News analysis of police data in the districts that cover Center City show that, while police stops have fallen sharply since 2014, blacks are still significantly more likely to be stopped than whites.
