Last year Al Roker took to Twitter to tell everyone about the racist cab driver that refused to pick him and his 13 year old son up.  Instead, the driver picked up a white passenger a block down.
Roker ended up filing a complaint with the Taxi & Limo Commission about what happened to him.
Yesterday, we learned that NYC’s T&LC gave the driver two options.  He either had to pay a $500 fine or have his liscense revoked/suspendedd for 30 days.
Roker tweeted how hurt he was by the situation stating: “This happens to people of color every day and while most cabbies do their job, there are those ignorant racist ones who hurt the others.”
This is his second complaint that the driver has faced in the last year.  He was fined $200 for doing the same thing to another person back in May.

When are they going to fire this guy?alroker
