Talequah businesses not accepting gov-issued Cherokee Nation IDs
Once again, Oklahoma proves it is a breeding ground of hatred, bigotry and racism. Businesses in Talequah, Oklahoma are posting signs in windows stating they no longer accept the Cherokee Nation's ID cards. A sign appeared at EZ Mart, which stated "state-issued identification or driver's licenses". According to the article on nativenewsonline.net, Buffalo Wild Wings and a local bar, Ned's, are also refusing the Cherokee Nation's ID card.
Cherokee Nation ID cards have been issued since 2012 and are government-issued. This is nothing more than racism and hatred.
Way to go, Oklahoma. We can't even go more than a day without becoming a global embarrassment.
