    No you didn't.

    I've been a student here for three years, have never once had a taxi drive past me because I'm white, nobody I know has ever had a taxi drive past them because they were white.

    More often than not whenever I get a taxi to or from the train station, or into town for a night out, the drivers are Asian and almost without exception they are perfectly pleasant. The only exceptions I've ever seen have been once when I got a driver who was a bit moody because he was meant to be having a day off but had to work instead, and a couple of times on the way back from a night out when it looked like one of our group was damn close to vomiting in the guys cab.

    Without a shadow of a doubt the Asian taxi drivers have been more polite and friendly than the British drivers, damn near every single time.

    Stop making up bull**** lies to try and make this place seem bad, it's pathetic and childish.

    Another student here, and same view as mack, taxi drivers here seem to be nicer than where I live too. In fact the only bad taxi driver I've had was British so...

    So funny it makes me laugh, if these 5 taxi drivers did drive past you then how can you say they are racists? What if they were all booked over the phone and were on the way to a job? You cant flag down a private hire taxi either legally they cant pick you up of the street.
