Just Curious: Cabs Shouldn’t Pick You Up If You Wear A Hoodie Or Pants Below Your Waist?

Comments:  | Leave A Comment

New York – Last week, the President of the New York Federation of Livery Cab Drivers said that more cab drivers should racially profile as “99 percent” of people who harm or kill cabbies are Black or Hispanic. He then backtracked from his comments and said that anyone who looks “suspicious” shouldn’t be picked up; that meant anyone wearing hoodies or baggy jeans.

Is this man just telling the truth or is he promoting racism?
