I'll also add, again, because I'm sure I've said this before, me and my mates were the ones who were always the target of stop and search where I grew up, I presume this is because there weren't any of those terrible darkies about so the pigs had to bully someone so moved up the "white privilege" ladder...
The only out and out racist I met (because even the NF guys were actually probably just into the look rather than the politics) was a Labour party official who during a debate said what are we going to do if the blacks outnumber us, (the implication being that they bred like rabbits), they'll be able to vote other blacks in!
I think we've moved on a long way since the late 70's & early 80's of my childhood but apparently we're now all institutionally racist now.
The statistics of stop and search should always be combined with who were available to be stopped in any set timeframe.
There are obvious reasons why some groups are stopped at certain times and others aren’t…………….The ‘others’ weren’t out in public so weren’t stopped.
