The politics of taxi dancing

Lots of NYC cab drivers live and/or garage in Brooklyn. I felt like a
native when I called out to an off-duty cab at a stop-light, "Brooklyn?"
"Park Slope."
"Get in."

My pleasure dimmed when he made two comments that probably indicate
he's got a race problem, and I thought about the many advantages that
accrue from living in desireable, central neighborhoods.
