Barry Jacobs: Confederate flag issue brings back bad memories for ACC's first black athletes

Billy Jones is disappointed, but not surprised. He's disappointed it took until now for use of the Confederate battle flag to fall into broad disfavor in this country. He is not surprised, however, that the flag has been sanctioned in areas of public life from official settings to sporting venues for the half-century since he became the first black basketball player in the ACC.
