Dateline "reports on a form of discrimination many African-Americans routinely face - getting passed up by taxi drivers. This issue received widespread media coverage in November of 1999 when actor Danny Glover filed a taxi discrimination complaint after claiming he was passed up repeatedly by taxis in New York City. In response to Glover's complaint, mayor Rudolph Giuliani announced a major undercover crackdown on biased taxi drivers. Dateline launched an undercover investigation of our own to see if the city's crackdown would have any effect. We started on the first night of the announced sting operation, and shot several times over the next few months. We found that despite the unprecedented publicity over the issue, many taxi drivers were willing to pass up our African-American testers."
