Over the last five years, BART police have cited or warned black passengers more than three times as often as white passengers for eating or drinking. Records show, since October 2014, 33 black riders were cited or warned about eating or drinking while only 9 were white. This data comes after the fallout of a viral video showing officers handcuffing an African-American man for eating an Egg McMuffin on a platform.
