It shouldn’t have mattered anyway.

After 9/11 happened, the company my father worked for sent out a memo saying they would no longer use a local motel.  They said it was owned by Arabs who refused to fly the American flag.

My father stopped by this motel on the way to work the next day, and saw the American flag flying.  He went inside and talked to the manager, and discovered this motel was owned by an Indian gentleman.

He reported these things when he got to work that day.  The motel was flying the American flag, the motel is not owned by Arabs.

But the company never rescinded the memo, and they never used that motel ever again.
