Partially true - or rather, oversimplified. The 1st Amendment does only refer to the ability (or inability) of the government to take any adverse action against a person or group of people for certain speech/speech activity. Some types of speech (obscenity, true threats, etc.) are not protected. But the overall point is valid - if a private individual wants to curb the speech of another private individual, that does not fall under the 1st Amendment.

is every time my friend gets stop to be told off by some white person, very rudely, how his tattoo of a dreamcatcher is racist and insensitive to the Native American people and should removed/apologize/be ashamed.

He is Native American and they confuse him for Mexican every time, and he just states “But I got this at the reservation I lived in for 15 YEARS.” and proceeds to falsely place a curse of his ancestors on them.
