The exchange was brief, polite but powerful. A black female homeowner turns away the white contractor she hired because he had a Confederate flag hanging from his truck.

In the video, a woman is seen declining the work of the white man she hired because of his car ‘accessory.’ She politely apologizes for the distance he traveled for the job he was hired for, but will be hiring someone else for their services.

When the contractor asks if he should just take down the flag, she politely tells him no, because he is free to believe what he chooses to. The contractor peacefully gets back into his car and drives away.

Thankfully the exchange ended on a peaceful note, and Twitter applauded the woman for her calm and professional demeanor.
