We find such gold in Uber Support twitter.  Here's someone who complained about differing pricing between two Uber users. This has been a common thread recently, where Uber's dynamic pricing is basically charging whatever they want to, likely based on factors we weren't aware before: (e.g. The more you use Uber, the more expensive it gets , Uber fare different for same location, same route, same time, and no surge)

Well, check out this person who complained about differing prices. 

Look at Uber's response:

    Yo, I was just reading this article about Uber's new pricing policy and it's got me heated. It seems like they're charging higher prices in predominantly black neighborhoods, which is straight-up racist. It's messed up that a company as big as Uber would stoop to racial profiling like this. This reminds me of the racial profiling essay I had to write for class (check this info) , where I learned how harmful these kinds of practices can be. I hope Uber gets called out for this and makes things right. Everyone deserves fair treatment, regardless of their race.

    Uber's response to this is that the surge prices can come and go any minute.

    Whether you believe that is up to you. lol

    Not sure if I call it racist.  It's more racially sensitive.

      I admit I noticed. Then again I am too used to the Internet that I just expected it.
