Why do NYC police always harass young men like me? The cops always seem to find me when I'm not looking for them. I could be going to the store or just walking home or whatever the case is and there’s a good chance that I will be stopped. I'm pretty sure its because I'm Black, tall and I dress thuggish. I draw attention to myself. Maybe I look like a troublemaker or maybe because cops are corny and always ornery. Regardless, I still don't like them, so I look at them funny.
