So, this is what happened in this incident, the Lyft driver James was booked by client Jackie and was set to pick her up from the front of Fossils Last Stand restaurant. He got there on time and as she was about to enter the car, she passed a racist comment which basically meant that James looks like a white guy and he must speak good English too. This comment which is obviously racist irked James and he asked her to repeat what she just said.

A 1/2 pound burger topped with bacon, pork roll & topped with melted American cheese. The pork roll was perfect, sliced thinly & crispy around the edges. 5 of us ate here for under $60.
