Taxi Skipped Al Roker because he is black.
Al Roker 61, is still saying that discrimination and racism is still subsisting. He claimed a NYC taxi passed him and picked a white guy a block later.
Filed a complaint today after getting passed up again by a NYC Yellow cab. Cabbie picked up a white guy a block away. Wonder why Uber wins? Roker tweeted. This happens to folks of color every day. And while most cabbies do their job, there are those ignorant, racist ones who hurt the others.
What really hurts, my 13 yr. old boy was with me and asked why the cabbie passed us, he continued. I said, Nick, ignorant people make dumb choices. Hopefully @nyctaxi weeds out the bad apples. Looking forward to a hearing and dealing with this. I will keep you posted.
He was however attacked by people on twitter through comments.
