23 Sad-But-True Stories About How Bad Customers Treat Native Americans

| Right | July 5, 2020

Dear readers,

Yesterday many of you celebrated July 4th, and we genuinely hope a happy time was had by all who did. It’s always important to remember those who lived in the USA (and Canada!) before it became a country fighting for Independence to begin with.

Over the years, we have received many stories about customers treating Native Americans with a lack of respect, ignorance, or complete frustration that their racist attack of “go back to your own country!” is met with an inevitable conclusion. We have rounded up 23 stories that should help remind all of us that we should celebrate cultures and differences, and honor those who came before us.
