A video that's going viral on Instagram.com has sparked a constitutionality debate. The video, which first appeared on Majic 107.5 DJ Ryan Cameron's Instagram page, shows a homeowner turning away a handyman who drove a long way to provide his services.

When the handyman exited his truck, a man and wife waked out of the home and declined his services immediately.

The wife did most of the talking.

"Hi. You know what, I do apologize. I know you've come from a very long way, but were gonna use someone else,” the woman said. "You continue to believe what you need to believe, sir, but no, I cannot pay you for your services," she added.

So what was the problem? The homeowner didn't appreciate the manner in which the businessman expressed his Southern pride.

But the bigger debate was the breakdown of traditional roles between men and women in the South.

Ryan's followers questioned why the homeowner's husband let his wife do all the talking. Clearly they don't know that Black women wear the pants in Southern households.

Question for the men: What would you have done if you were the husband?

    All the men in my family step in front of their women...we are the back up.

  • Shenanigans1

    Oh no no no no non no...*lady from get out voice*. As for why the man didn’t speak out as much it’s probably bc whatever he wouldn’t have said would have been way worse. That a**hole knows what he’s doing with that ignant azz sign. Yes I said ignant.

    Tf is wrong with these people? The flag is not your problem. I see flags from every country under the sun flying high. People coming in droves to take advantage of America but the weirdos who live here are offended? Leave and find out what you are taking for granted.

    This is the dynamic in black america. The women run the show, which explains why the black community as a whole is pure trash. There has never been a thriving successful society/empire with a matriarchal system.

  • Applebootay

    Yeah but now he knows where you live..?

  • Soda

    That flag represents a civil war they lost, a fight to keep Black people enslaved, you imbecile.

  • Mielle Downey

    So why do so many imbeciles vote for the Dixie crat dems? The Confederate flag is and was thier flag.

  • Scromes1212

    Lol the husband was gonna let him do the work and his wife had other plans. Females always want to act like sub contractors and take over projects lol stay getting beat out they money from talking to dam much without having a clue lol sh*t is hilarious

  • Cricket404

    Happy Wife Happy Life. It's unprofessional to pull up in someone's driveway to work with that huge distraction. My hubby don't care, he enjoys my power trips with the help, it's foreplay.

  • Scromes1212

    He clearly said "she" is upset, not "we"

  • Scromes1212

    Or maybe he just tolerates it lol I know I would if I knew sex was coming after it lol JS

  • Applebootay

    Am I color blind or does the guy with the flag look......not white?

  • Ghetto Real Name

    Well she ASKED his ass at the VERY start are you gonna do it or do you want ME to do it. He gave permission for her to do it. Shit. She asked. My guy lets me do it. But hell sometimes he does it and he so damn quiet and passive when he DO get into getting someone together its not very nice. In FACT Its pretty bad and he knows it. So for him to avoid JAIL TIME, we most of the time agree I am the best public VOICE for US as a unit.

  • AphroKween

    Different strokes for different folks!! I like my man in charge otherwise I cant respect him.

  • CookieMobster

    That flag only represents southern pride now. I'm born and raised in middle GA, folks born and raised here don't get offended by this. At least those I know don't.

  • Ghetto Real Name

    *getting someone

  • Ghetto Real Name

    Sis he is not white. Your eyes is not failing.

  • Mielle Downey

    Black liberals are a effing contridicton. Why vote for the party who hoisted and created the flag and then get offended. What a bunch of losers.It has reflected Democratic racial oppression since it was stitched together in 1861, and has been hoisted by Democrats ever since. Just as Republicans — led by President Abraham Lincoln — valiantly crushed the Democrat-run Confederacy, Republicans proudly should banish the Stars and Bars to private property and history museums. They also should remind Americans that Democrats waved this frightful banner until very recently.

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    WELP!

  • Bonita

    I wouldn't have had to say a peep, cause my man would've handled that without me having to get off the couch. They know who they have, cause they picked each other. She chose a man that's going to allow her to exercise masculine energy, even when he's present, (that's just my perception based upon this situation), and he chose a woman that he allows to take on the masculine energy in the relationship. There's somebody for everybody. I just know I don't want a hen-pecked man who doesn't know how to assert himself and lead my relationship.

  • Shenanigans1

    Oh ok boo

  • Shani’s Baby

    thank you.....I don't condone bad language but she had it coming and you did a GRAND JOB.

  • CardiB’sAbs

    I would’ve done the same thing. My guy is too damn nice and has a go with the flow type of attitude. So our new neighbor rolled up on him while he was bbqing just to ask him what he did for a living-probably because he was wondering how we can afford to stay here. My bf let that sh*t slide, I would’ve told him “I mind my business for a living”.

  • Applebootay

    Exactly! Women have voices too and the house IS OUR DOMAIN we run it. If mama ain't happy, ain't nobody happy. PeruodT

  • Shenanigans1

    Same. Same.

  • Soda

    So Blacks with southern pride also fly that flag now?

  • Applebootay

    So but why.....nevermind....I don't wanna know...

  • CardiB’sAbs

    Exactly! My guy is mad chill but when he gets tired of a person (which is extremely rare) nothing good comes of it.

  • Rayne

    Welp... I run EVERYTHING, but I go outta my way to make him feel like it was his idea. Even ignoring him.? I would’ve give dude at least $50 for his gas and time tho. I’m not that heartless. ????

  • DroneRivers

    Looks like the husband wouldn't have minded the work regardless of the guy's beliefs. But he chose to side with his wife. I don't see the big deal. That doesn't mean women run the households in the south. I don't personally know any southerners where that is the case.

  • Alextra Ballard

    That was one big as flag

  • Ghetto Real Name

    I DONT WANNNNNNNNNNA KNOW (in my Mario Winans voice)

  • Karen Brady

    Flag as big as his truck. He wants to be a jackass and provoke black folk. I would have sent him on his dusty craka way too. Hubby seemed a bit shook. He should have had her back. Wuss.

  • Scromes1212

    Exactly. The husband went out of his way to tell the dude "she" is upset with the flag. You already know how that conversation went before they walked out lol he was like it's just a flag, we need to get this work done. She was like NO if your not gonna tell him I will. It's what you have to deal with when you married. Compromise. He let her have this one

  • Mielle Downey

    This is why no one wants to date black women. We need to become more feminine and stop letting liberal lesbians turn us into their butch to thier Cassidy. Black women stop trying to be your husbands gay lover and be his Queen.

  • Alextra Ballard

    I loved the exchanged...she handled it

  • E Jai

    Lol @ too damn nice

  • Karen Brady

    “I mind my business for a living” :-)

  • Mielle Downey

    Provoke? The dummies are voting for the ones who created the flag in 1861 the Democrats. Foh.

  • EMILY POST

    People have the right to choose who they want to employ as an independent contractor. A lot of good people have been turned away to do work.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    “Clearly they don't know that Black women wear the pants in Southern households.”

    subjective and inaccurate

  • Karen Brady

    Thought so too but I think he's just dusty, dirty white.
