So today was grocery day
The first house on my rural road is a crack house waving a giant confederate flag. I do not know these neighbors, nor do I want to.
Today is grocery day, so I drove into town .
There was a road crew working on the bridge. Two flagmen and two men working on the bridge. One black man and three hispanic/latino men.
The black man was holding a stop/slow sign...right in front of the house with the confederate flag.
When he stopped me, I waved him to my window. I said that I was sorry that he had to work in front of that hateful house and that most people on this hill didn't hate like that. He was polite and said a simple thank you.
I'm embarrassed and sick that these people had to be exposed to that shit.
How would you all respond and did I say the right thing?
I've been giving serious thought whether to stay or move to a more liberal/less hateful area.
It lets me know I don't have to waste any time with them.
i would think all the more so for a flagger. a truly boring job, dangerous, and thankless.
I cannot imagine standing out there in the heat, let alone under that flag...
I wish people could open their hearts and minds... And I hope I wasn't the only one who showed kindness/caring...
It didn't take anything away from my day to talk with him. I hope I wasn't the only person on my road to speak out..
I hope you took your picture ID with you to buy groceries as Trump said it was required.
