Minnesota National Guardswoman experienced discrimination

A fishy incident occurred in Minnesota:
A spokesperson for SuperAmerica says the company is calling an alleged incident of discrimination at a store location in Minneapolis, near the Bloomington border, a "misunderstanding."

A member of the military is accusing employees at the SA on Post Road of denying her service on Sunday, reportedly because her uniform was offensive to taxi drivers who regularly do business there.

The story blew up on social media Tuesday, with many expressing outrage at the allegations. The incident was first reported Sunday afternoon by Dave Boucha, on his Facebook page. Boucha has since deleted his original post.

KARE 11 reached out to SuperAmerica Tuesday afternoon, and at that time a spokesperson told the station that they will investigate the allegations thoroughly. That spokesperson also said training on discrimination will be mandatory for all employees at that location.
Could those unnamed taxi drivers be Muslims? It's possible, recalling that there were cases of Muslim cabbies in Minnesota who refused service to blind riders with seeing eye dogs. Now they're turning their petty hostilities against army personnel too. The store staff who abetted their disgraceful attitudes should be ashamed of themselves.
