We are getting a new perspective on stop-and-frisk — a map that shows just how widespread the stops were…and exactly who was stopped.

This map was created by a team of journalism students at Columbia University.

This represents the over 500K stop-and-frisks last year by the NYPD, with each dot representing a specific race.

The highest concentrations you can see are the blue dots, which represent African Americans, and the black-and-orange dots, which represent Hispanic Americans.
