Would you show a buyer this property?

You're an agent working with a very qualified buyer for a lakefront home priced over $750,000. There are so many nice options available to show your clients that you have to narrow the choices. Based on the photos, would this be a property you'd show your clients?

This property has been on and off the market over the past 2 years and has been reduced more than 30% from the original asking price. It has lots going for it and could be a possibility. However, I can't get past the confederate flags.
After I gently pointed out the the images might offend my potential buyers of this property, the listing agent suggested that this home probably wasn't for us. Really? You want to discourage a ready, willing and able buyer from seeing your property? Not to mention this agent who now won't be showing your property? Obviously every seller has their priorities.
