Talib Kweli Talks Stop-And-Frisk On MSNBC

Talib Kweli has never shied away from speaking on controversial issues and his recent appearance on the MSNBC show All In With Chris Hayes was no exception. Following a decision by a federal judge that ruled the NYPD’s stop-and-frisk policy unconstitutional, the Prisoner Of Conscious rapper appeared on the program to discuss the ruling, share his personal experience with the policy in New York and reflect on its legality.

“Talking on a constitutional level, we have certain rights,” says Kweli in the clip. “By accepting stop-and-frisk as a policy, you’re telling people that because you live in a poor neighborhood it’s your fault and you deserve to be criminalized. And that’s not constitutional.”
