Has anyone read "The Arms of Krupp" ?

It's a fascinating biography about Essen's Krupp family. (Germany)

I'm about 1/3 through it.

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?
