I'm not so sure I believe that, but even so, #1, It may have something to do with the way he was dressed. #2, The biggest reason why this might happen is that a good portion of the cab drivers in large cities are from other countries where intense racism against black people is very prevalent.
Earlier this year, Forest Whitaker was publicly frisked in a deli after being wrongfully accused of shoplifting.
Yeah, well, that happens to white people, too.
He lives in New York city, where I have seen many taxi drivers who are African, or African American. Is Daniels really truthful in saying that they won't stop for him but will stop for his "white" secretary?
If there is any truth to his story it is because his secretary is a woman. Maybe he has just discovered that cab drivers, even when they are African American, would rather pick up a woman than a man. Particularly if his secretary looks like many secretaries to very successful men in New York City do.
But since he got the talking points memo from the DNC he assigns racism as the cause.
