Two guesses as to why the cabby's name and ethnicity appeared no where in the article.

I think in the Netherlands, they actually do have cultural classes for new immigrants. Perhaps we should do the same.

They didn't mention his ethnicity, but they did mention his name:

"But the driver, identified by Bruno and city records as Medhat Mohamed..."

Didn't see that, my bad. I'm telling y'all there is going to be a huge culture clash here pretty soon. Those of you who keep bitching about Christians better wake up; Muslims aren't nearly as tolerant as we are.

That's why Atheism is the best religion.

My response was tongue-in-cheek...

After all, could one class really cover everything you need to know about the US? One could live an entire lifetime in the US and not know all there is to know...

Anyway, I have no problem with people hugging each other but at the end of the day, the taxi is like a private business and if the vendor elects to refuse service, that's his right. Of course, he should be willing to accept the negative impact to his business as a result...
