Here is the Opening Paragraph! Read on and let me know what you think of this…..
“Fernando Mateo, president of the New York State Federation of Taxi Drivers, is urging New York City cab drivers to begin profiling prospective passengers, refusing rides to blacks and Latinos who look suspicious. Mateo identifies himself as both black and Hispanic.”
I myself think that this is not a good thing to be implementing. It is doing nothing but to breed hate and fuel the flames of indifference, because it is calling out and labeling only certain people as being the root of the problem…HOWEVER…It is hard to not look at the figures and statistics presented. The Crimes commited do show that it is somewhere around 90% of violent crimes on cabbies involve a black or hispanic person…..soo what do we do here? How do we stop this?>?
