Is it only me here or someone else who thinks that those riders who cancel their bookings the moment after we accept, are Racist? Tonight one guy send me request, I accepted, than he cancelled straight after acceptance. He done that at least three times and I deliberately kept accepting his requests until he gave up. I was sure that he had some preference about the drivers.
Do you get me where I am coming from?

Racism is one of the possibilities.

Others is the car you drive.

But many times it is a person trying to get a specific driver that is near him and keeps getting matched with you. Sometimes I drop off a person from a group and one decides to continue with a new request. App keeps matching him to a different driver. Multiple attempts and cancels later we get matched.

Don't take it personally. I prefer a racist rider to cancel than ride and rate me a 1 star.

Ageist, sexist, namist, colour of hairist, wearing of glasses-ist.......

You don't know for sure why a rider cancels, and don't know whats in their mind as to why, other than what is based on other info they receive of the driver when they accept their request.

It would be interesting to find out the average rating and cancellations for each of these characteristics, if there is any.

But the above is likely to be true, you want a specific driver to come to you who you know.

Cancellation is part of the job. Sometimes it's some kids fooling around or a newbie who is just experimenting.

we have people literally dying to come here. arabs come knowing that for at least a few months they can be themselves without persecution. there is a permanent presence of demonstration opposite no. 10. we have laws in place protecting human rights and stopping discrimination of race or religion. yet you have managed to find racism on an app where cancellations are common place.
sadly i do get where you are coming from.

Of all the reasons they could cancel and you assume racism?! This say's a lot more about you than about the riders. What is your photo like? I know people who cancel if their driver looks like a psychopath (which is quite a few of them!)
Or if their actually someone else ( Has been Known)

i personally think it is just someone trying to get a specific driver.

or they don't like your rating or photo for reason 2 or 3.

to call it racist is a bit silly.

JL: I DEFINITELY AGREE.

It's happened to me quite a number of times here in Lexington, KY(USA).

And rarely do I receive requests for rides during peak periods.
