Racist Cab Driver Who Wouldn’t Pick Up Al Roker Pleads Guilty

A New York City taxi driver who NBC “Today” Show weatherman Al Roker said passed him in favor of picking up a white man a block away back in November has pleaded guilty to a service refusal violation pled guilty and was fined $500. Apparently, this was Driver Mahabur Rahman’s second refusal violation.

The TLC says Roker was notified of the outcome but he has yet to comment.

Do you think being fined is a fitting consequence for this kind of violation?

    Fine was too low. All right “Rahman” when some drunk goombah from Staten Island clocks you, you’ll miss Al.

    maybe after Rahman pays his fine, his superiors should politely suggest to him another line of work because it seems he is having a little difficulty fulfilling his current job requirements.

      I agree. I saw on another site that this is actually the 2nd time Rahman has been fined for discrimination. If he didn’t learn the first time, he ain’t gonna be bothered to learn it now.

    Al Roker has always been a strong man who is a class act. He loves his beautiful black wife and his children. Also, Al Roker has spoken in communities nationwide to stand up for childhood education and recreational programs for kids. The cab driver ought to be punished and I’m glad that he will pay a fine. The fine was too low and these racists have to be placed on notice that there will be consequences for their evil actions.

    You see, stupidity like passing someone up because of the color of his/her skin can cause a person to miss his/her blessing. He passed up Al Roker which means he missed what could’ve been a nice little tip. How stupid is that!
