It's a fascinating biography about Essen's Krupp family. (Germany)
I'm about 1/3 through it.
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?
