A white Uber driver was filmed calling Javon O’Neal, who is black, the n-word during a ride in Tallahassee, Florida on Aug. 23.
O’Neal started recording the incident with his cell phone, and posted the video on Facebook where he said, “Racism still exists.”
O’Neal was going to orientation for a new job, but doesn’t have a car, so he had an Uber driver pick him up, notes WTXL.
Javon said the driver was listed as “Michael” on the Uber app.
Javon sent to a statement to Uber:
This ride made me feel very uncomfortable emotionally and exhausted and not comfortable with getting another Uber.
