Got My Own Per­son­al Trail Of Tears Over Here

Crazy old white la­dy try­ing on wed­ding veil: So I al­ways won­dered why I did­n’t look good in these things…until 2004.
Dis­in­ter­est­ed cus­tomer: Oh?
Crazy old white la­dy: Yeah, then I found out I was part Na­tive Amer­i­can. At least 5%.
Dis­in­ter­est­ed cus­tomer (con­fused): Oh…?
Crazy, old white la­dy: Yeah. That’s why I don’t look good in veils. Cause we Na­tive Amer­i­cans don’t wear them.
Dis­in­ter­est­ed cus­tomer: I got mar­ried in a cour­t­house.
Crazy old white la­dy: I hate to say it since I am part white, but damn those white peo­ple!
