Would you call someone a racist if they would only use a taxi with a white driver?

Would you call someone a racist if they would only use a taxi with a white driver?

We were speaking in the office today about getting a taxi late at night. Some people said that they always look at the driver before they get into the taxi. I guess that’s normal as you wouldn’t just jump into a car with a stranger without taking a glance.  

However one person said that they knew someone who said that when they’re trying to hail a taxi they will always avoid a foreign taxi driver. They were pretty adamant about that. If they stopped a taxi with say a Nigerian driver, they would let the taxi go and wait for another.

Is this “FEAR” just ridiculous or do you think it is a genuine concern for people?

The term racist is used very freely in modern society and in many cases it is totally justified. However you will hear from Jamie now that it can be thrown out in a legal setting as an attempt to sway judge and court case.
