It’s pathetic that over 80 years after Victor H. Green created the Negro Traveler’s Green Book to help black travelers avoid trouble from racist business owners, customers can still feel unsafe at a business—even a generally progressive national chain—because of their race.

But whether or not they ever get their house in order, you can feel proud supporting an independent and black owned business instead. (And the coffee will probably taste better.)
