Polar Girl is discussing:

A now viral video shows a woman named 'Jackie' surprised that her Lyft driver, James Bode, is white, and saying: 'You're like a normal guy. Like you speak English.'

If you were the only white person in your area doing a specific shitty job, would you want customers regularly reminding you of that?

I think he went virtue signaling woketard because he was too much of a coward to defend himself picking up customers at a biker bar. In other words, it was a means to an ends not an ends in itself.
