Short Humerous movie about racism at multiple levels, 23 February 1999
Author: Verner from Copenhagen Denmark

A man has forgotten to vote, 10 minutes before closing the polls, he takes a cab but The Taxi-driver turn him on with racist comments, he change to others cabs - but the same situation occurs.

Humorous short movie, that indicate that intolerance is found at many levels.
