Residents say racism still a real issue

April 27, 2004
A Native American civil rights movement incited by the brutal murder of three Navajo males at the hands of Anglo teenagers shook the city of Farmington in 1974.
     For the first time, Native American protesters said they were tired of being treated like lesser people by businesses, restaurants and the citizens of Farmington. But did it make a difference?
     In the past, Stella Webster had been slighted in restaurants and ignored in department stores, but the most explicit act of racism she ever endured took place along Auburn Avenue.
