One thing customers don't expect from contractors is to have offensive racial or political opinions thrust in their faces. But that's what a worker for Acorn Hill Contracting on the North Side is doing. His truck is adorned with a Confederate flag that stretches from one side of its rear window to the other. It's an in-your-face expression of support for a white supremacist regime that caused the deaths of 360,000 Union soldiers, a regime many Americans hoped we'd seen the last of 140 years ago.
