muslim taxi drivers being racist by not allowing all.

Reader comment on item: Don't Bring That Booze into My Taxi

If we allow muslim taxi drivers to say who can be in a cab, who will be next to be disallowed because it offends islam ? Will it be ok for a muslim taxi driver to say no to a single woman or a woman who has a skirt that is too short, or will it be a single mother and child. People who are bigots don't stop. Who will be next to be forbidden by muslim cab drivers, will it be any Jewish person or may be just a Hasidic Jew. How about a blind person with a seeing eye dog , oh wait, that is already happening.

This story reminds us of the tale of the man who saw things were bad in Germany in 1936 he said " At first they came for the Jew , I was not Jewish so I said nothing , then they came for the communists , I was not a communist so I said nothing , then they came for the disabled , I was not disabled so I said nothing , then one day then came for me , and there was no one left to say anything "

Racism is racism. Being a bigot is being a bigot. No middle ground , things are either right or they are wrong. If muslims wish to be thought of in a good way , they must end the hate.
