Your question has a presupposition that's not based on anything anyone has even said in this thread. Why don't you revisit my first post in this thread? After you've done that, you can quote the exact place where I said "black people have a hard time getting cabs."

I didn't say you did, but some of us (you know the ones living in the real world) think that Black people still do have a hard time. Maybe you're living the good life where the associates at Davis, Polk (the best law firm there is in NY) are swimming in money and are big tippers, hence why they have taxis honking at them on the street to get in before they can even hail one.

Davis Polk is not the best firm in New York. That would be Cravath.

Yeah imagine that. That some of us includes me too...

Re: Davis Polk: That was sarcasm. I've worked with Davis Polk over the years as a client of mine and they're as cheap as can be.

It's a legitimate question, not unless you don't think Blacks have a hard time getting a taxi these days?

They may pay the associates well, but they're always looking for a discount from the vendors they work with. Typical law firm. Rake in the money and get everything on the cheap. Would be even more of a reason why the associates would tip poorly if anything.

How much do you think these firms are supposed to pay you for refilling the soda machine every week?
