It’s Friday and this poor white guy is trying to get home but these bloody taxi drivers keep ignoring him. People who use taxis as a means for transport know that there are countless reason a taxi driver might ignore you, for instance, different taxis go to different destination and the only way a taxi driver would know were you’re going is if you make the appropriate hand signal to stop the taxi (pointing upwards if you’re going to the CBD, downwards if you’re going somewhere local, etc). If you make the wrong hand signal, the taxi driver ignores you. When the taxi is full, the taxi driver ignores you. If the taxi driver saw that you’ve just gotten off a Rea vaya BRT bus and need a taxi to get to your next destination, he ignores you.
It’s quiet sad that, with so many possible explanations of why a taxi driver would ignore a passenger, that this guy would think that the reason he was ignored was because he was white. Poor soul……………. but then again, maybe he’s right, with all this talks of vengeance and race wars, taxi drivers might have thought that he’s a bloody agent sent by the AWB to blow their brains out. Yeah, they ignored him ’cause he’s white.
