Not a good place for Black people or Black friendly people 1 rating By Sunnyone ( Apr 06, 2012) No transportation services for Black people not in with the police. Even if you're not Black and in with the police, never call "The Bergs" or Mt Lassen transportation services. Actually I'm a Black professional who works here and they still treated me Like dirt. I think they're ...Read More stuck in the 18th century. Also, it may be a good place to start a non racist taxi cab service to startle the dimwit companies of Mt Lassen and the Bergs. Might improve the entire city! Just remember when you're here hold your head up high and keep it moving. Especially if you're Black. Don't know yet whether or not they're violent towards those with Black skin color. Read Less
