What would you do if you saw a man on crutches fall down on the sidewalk? Now, what if that man was homeless? Would it change the way you react? This video set out to answer the question: Does appearance change the way people are treated?
This experiment resulted in some pretty surprising results. First, a “successful” businessman falls down on the sidewalk. Many people rush to his aid and help him back up, which is wonderful to see. But what happens when a man dressed like a homeless man falls? Watch the video to find out. The results are much different, and I will say that everyone should have helped out the ‘homeless” man the same as they helped out the “successful” one.
