The approximate rate at which Black teens were more likely to be searched by California law enforcement compared with teens believed to be white during vehicle and pedestrian stops in 2021.

A new report by California’s Racial and Identity Profiling Advisory Board found that police searched people who were perceived to be Black at 2.2 times the rate of people thought to be white and police were more than twice as likely to use force against people they thought were Black as compared to those whom officers believed to be white. The 2021 Census estimates that Black or African American people make up only 6.5 percent of California’s population.
