You see someone at the local boardwalk being taunted and bullied, what would you do?
This is usually how it starts, these real-life scenarios which ABC (an American channel)produces to see what everyday folks would do..it tests human kindness (or apathy and lack of compassion/motivation) and also seeks to gauge the American society's tolerance for prejudice and discrimination.
I love this series and have been addicted to it for about a year now:-) You can really see the human capacity for kindness to help a stranger or indifference towards our fellow human beings. As I expected, and which even the show has pointed out time and again, it is the women whom seem to step up and help others in need and whom are much more passionate and courageous in speaking out against what they perceive to be discrimination and unfairness whilst the men tend to let it go...
Anyways, I catch broadcasted episodes of the innovative show here in Australia, online at the ABC official website here:http://abcnews.go.com/WhatWouldYouDo/
If you can watch it in your country too, do give it a go! It's an amazing and insightful show into human nature and societal prejudices as well as discrimination:-)
