  1. Strange, but somehow this event brings memories of black people being forced to sit in the back in the bus in early days…. when segregation and American Apartheid (AA) were common…….

    It is disgusting to realize that in 2013 there are still people around, in America especially, who feel that people who openly are themselves are disgusting…….

    I think that not only this busdriver is a shocking example of how sick, low and foul even in 2013 can be towards other people, but also that the city of Albuquerque, New Mexico has failed in its policy of being part of 2013 and the 21st century!
    A cit that hires people who still have the attitude that people who are different need to sit in the back of the bus is as foul, as rotten, as sick as the individual with that attitude!
    Nobody tells me that this same busdriver has not been expressing his disgust on and about homosexual people, and by failing to recognize that attitude, the city of Albuquerque, New Mexico, is equally sick, rotten and foul!

    I suggest that the couple subjected to the degrading attitude of the busdriver demand compensation, and that the bisdriver will be fired and never be allwoed to at anytime or under any circumstance will be given a post in public service!

  2. and where are the black people? WHY are they not SCREAMING bloody murder over this injustice…. where is Al Sharpton… why isn’t he here demanding justice? that Anyone was ordered to the back of the bus. betcha 5 bucks the shuttle driver was black.

    Which airport? Who runs the shuttle service? Is it a particular airline? A third-party contractor? The city of Albuquerque?

    This story is only half-told.

    Rosa Parks, where are you ? The courage you faced in the Montgomery bus and the following Montgomery bus boycott from from December 1, 1955 is needed in Albuquerque. This bus driver doesn’t seem much aware of your fight…
