James W. Bode, an American driver for the company Lyft, became “a hero” in 24 hours on social networks after driving from



“Are you a white man?

You seem to speak English”.

It is with this astonishing racist question that the scene begins in the car.

James, the VTC driver supposed to pick up the client Jackie and her companion, finds himself having to repeat the question to be sure he has heard what was asked of him.

Then quickly decides to cancel the race by warning the couple of the inappropriate question.

This is followed by insults towards the driver who works for the company Lyft.

The latter threatens them to contact the police with proof of the entire sequence recorded thanks to the surveillance camera of his vehicle, but continues to be insulted by the couple, notably with negrophobic insults.

A complaint has since been filed at the Catasauqua police station in the state of Pennsylvania,

The client in question, recognizable in the images, ended up being identified as the manager of the Fossils Last Stand bar-restaurant.

Since the media coverage of this case, negative comments from Internet users have been pouring in on restaurant rating sites such as Yelp - where the rating has dropped to one out of five stars - and where photos of middle fingers or excrement have been posted to describe the establishment.

Their Facebook page was also taken down.

After posting the video on his Facebook account, James W. Bode received thousands of comments.

“To everyone who reaches out and supports me, thank you.

I really appreciate.

But what I did should be what you should see everywhere, all the time.

I shouldn't be "the man who did or said that", we should all be," James wrote the next day to respond to everyone trying to thank him for his behavior.
