Letter to the editor: Flag’s racism is not welcome

There’s good news and bad news on Dog Team Road in New Haven these days. First the good news: the town did a wonderful job repaving the road. The road was in pretty bad shape but over the month of July it was scraped and repaved and it is lovely to drive on.
Now the bad news: a resident of Dog Team Road on the Nop Farm has decided to display his racist views for all to see as they travel to and from home and work. The Confederate flag — the quintessential symbol of bigotry and Jim Crow and the KKK — flies right next to the road so as not to be missed. There is little doubt about what message is being sent — white supremacy lives here. For those of you who might travel this road, please know that this does not represent the feelings of all others who live on this road.
