Muslim taxi drivers at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport are refusing service to passengers carrying alcohol:

Flight attendant Eva Buzek said she was refused service in March after she told a driver to be careful with her suitcase because it had wine in it. Other drivers in the taxi line passed the word, she said, and four more refused her service. A dispatcher finally steered her to a driver who would take the fare.

Buzek, who grew up in Poland, said her treatment goes against American values. “I came to this country and I didn’t expect anybody to adjust to my needs,” she said. “I don’t want to impose my beliefs on anyone else. That’s why I’m in this country, because of the freedom.”

“What’s going to be next? … Do I have to cover my head?”

Well, yes. In time.
