WASHINGTON, D.C. (WUSA9) A 9 Wants To Know Investigation that airs Thursday at 11:00 tested DC taxicab drivers to see who would transport a black passenger to a destination in Southeast Washington.

Update:  Report has broadcast and published online.  Click here to see DC cabs refusing service to black passenger investigation.

We have now posted three clips showing the surveillance footage and confrontations with cabbies who refused to transport our WUSA9 employees to the requested destination.

The video attached to this story shows a black cab driver explaining why he refused to pick up a black passenger, but picked up a white passenger 100 feet later.

We've posted two other videos, and will continue posting clips for our undercover operation until the segment airs on WUSA9 Thursday night at 11:00 pm.
