    Comments: 3 More Print The head of a city taxi-drivers union is urging hacks to use "racial profiling" when deciding whether to pick up passengers, after a Queens livery driver was shot by an apparently Hispanic gunman over the weekend.

    The brutal attack was captured by the vehicle's security camera -- which yesterday led to a tip that helped cops ID a suspect, who has not yet been caught. He was not identified, but a source said he's 22, from Queens and has a sealed police record.

    "Profile your passengers; it's very important," said Fernando Mateo, president of the New York State Federation of Taxi Drivers, after Saturday's shooting of Trevor Bell, 53, in South Ozone Park.

    HACK TALK: Taxi-union boss Fernando Mateo speaks in Queens after driver Trevor Bell was shot Saturday and his attacker was caught on video, as covered in yesterday's Post.
    Mateo spoke at a press conference Saturday outside Jamaica Hospital, where Bell is in serious condition.

    "I don't care about racial profiling. You know, sometimes it is good we are racially profiled, because the God's honest truth is that 99 percent of the people that are robbing, stealing, killing these drivers are blacks and Hispanics," said Mateo, who is Hispanic and has a black father.

    "So if you see suspicious activity, you know what? Don't pick that person up."

    The NYPD did not immediately respond to requests for racial statistics on livery-cab robberies.

    But Mateo's comments drew immediate condemnation.

    "Choosing which passengers to serve on the basis of race is illegal, downright wrong and simply unacceptable," said Taxi and Limousine Commissioner David Yassky.

    City Councilman Charles Barron (D-Brooklyn) added that Mateo was "just talking foolish out of . . . desperation because he doesn't know what to do about a very serious issue."

    The Rev. Al Sharpton called Mateo's remarks "absurd."

    But Mateo told The Post, "I'm asking black and Hispanic people to profile their own, so how the hell can this be racist?

    "It's our own committing these crimes against us. It's weeding out the criminal element."

    The video from Bell's car shows his passenger, who was sitting in the front seat, pulling a gun and shooting him when he resisted demands for money.

    Bell, a father of two working an extra shift to buy Christmas gifts, was hit with six shots in his neck and legs.

    The gunman fled with less than $100.

    I saw that on the news... Saw his intended point.. He said its the young black and hispanic guys doing the crime and therefore the drivers should safeguard themselves and not pick up certain characters....
    Never waste your time trying to explain who you are to people who are committed to misunderstanding you.

    Once you live in NY it is understood cab drivers (yellow specifically) will profile you. The only time they will stop for you is if you have on a car coat or if you are standing next to jungle fever or miss asian persuasion. No news here.
    White people are known serial killers and yet they are preferred customers
    I intentional did not address the hispanic issues because raguardless... ####################s, im sorry, minorities, will get the shorter end of the stick if we're lucky. Almost all the time, no stick.

    Buy you own keys. I have 3... yuh want one?

    There was a big brouhaha a few years ago about taxis not picking up blacks. The TLC had agents out flagging down drivers and asking to be taken to certain black neighborhoods and if the drivers refused the fare then he would be in trouble. This dude is saying phuck all that....you should be regarded as a suspect if you are black or hispanic and the drivers should be very careful about picking you up.....in other words....don't expect cabs to stop for you in the city if you are black or hispanic.

    cab drivers SHOULD use discretion. if you were a cab driver would you pick up some burnt lip hoody wearing, pants sagging, doo rag wearing under over sized fitted wearing ####################? probably not. at the same time, if im a taxi driver im not picking up the eminem look alike white boy either. rev. al and the boys are talking a bunch of fockery and they know it.

    Ras, no where was attire in the mix on this dude's comments. The dude is talking about racial profiling...not attire profiling. What makes it even more alarming is that the guy is hispanic/black himself.

    I understand how upset he was but i think he crossed the line here.

    I thought he did say something about attire, the hour, street pickups, how these thugs use women to lure the cabbies to stop streetside etc...he also said there is an age demographic as well

    he should have specified the type of black or hispanic person he was talking about. i think/hope he was talking about the same black/hispanic that i would NOT pick up either. ultimately he is right, 9 times out of 10 when a cab gets robbed and the driver gets hurt its at the hands of either a black or hispanic. its hard to blame him for saying what so many other people want to say but are afraid to.

    its 99% until one of he drivers get held hostage by some overly worked, underpaid, stressed out wall street broker....but that will never happen. Not in the sane society we live in
