A good example is a few years ago they were bitching again how it’s hard for blacks to hail a cab in New York city...until they interviewed black cab drivers and asked them why they didn’t pick up blacks: “Because I don’t want to get robbed” is what they said. So there went the lefts whole “cabdrivers are racist” argument, and the subject was never mentioned again. I assume it will be when another leftist like Danny Glover can’t hail a cab. “Cab drivers are racist!”
I grew up in NYC and one thing those yellow cabs don’t want to do is take you to the outer boroughs. In Brooklyn, they’ll take you as far as Park Slope without an argument, but that’s it. Of course they are legally obliged to take you anywhere within the 5 boroughs, but they don’t want to and they don’t.
I think that is often what is happening with the black people who complain the cabs won’t stop for them. Of course the cabbie’s fear of being robbed (or worse!) is part of it too, at least with men, I’m sure.
I think black people have a delusional idea about white people. I think they think cops treat all white people great, cab drivers are always nice to us, the Courts are on the side of white people, etc.
That is not the case, white people get abused and ignored by “society” all the time. Sorry Rev. Al and Jesse Jackson, nobody is kissing our rear ends either.
