DAILYKENN.com -- There is a reason why cab drivers often ignore black fares: The likelihood of being robbed, assaulted, or killed are elevated. No FBI statistics are needed to convince them. Urban cabbies live and work in an environment where reality diverges from the fake cultural Marxism notion that, somehow, cab drivers just don't like black people; even black cab drivers.
Case in point: An Alton, Illinois cab driver was stabbed multiple times. The driver braked and accelerated to end the attack; an action that likely saved his life.
"I just put my foot down on the gas and took off. I hit the brakes and hit the gas to shake him loose from me. We came around the next corner and I just nailed it," the driver said.
In an unrelated attack, a cab driver in New Bedford, Connecticut was placed in a choke hold during an attempted robbery, reports say. The armed driver managed to abort the attacker with four gun shots. [source]

An Alton man is facing attempted murder charges Thursday for stabbing a cab driver 12 times.
The Madison County State’s Attorney’s Office charged 54-year-old Arthur E. Smallwood for attempted first-degree murder and aggravated battery.
Police said Smallwood stabbed the victim, a cab driver for Alton’s Best Cabs, over 12 times causing injury to the victim’s back, shoulder and neck.
The driver. who is an immigrant from Norway, said he recalls a passenger pulling a knife a few minutes after hopping into his cab.
"He jumps over behind me, grabs me around the neck and tells me to not do anything. Instinctively, I grabbed his hands and pushed it away from me," said the driver. "I did not realize he had a knife until he stabbed me 5-6 times. I grabbed his hand trying to stop him."
Quick thinking likely saved his life.
"I just put my foot down on the gas and took off. I hit the brakes and hit the gas to shake him loose from me. We came around the next corner and I just nailed it," the driver said
