Have you ever found yourself in a situation where you witnessed someone experiencing violence or hard time coping with their reality? When you think about it, I bet the first thing that comes to your mind is that you would act brave and try to help whoever the victim or the person in need of financial help is. But the reality is that situations like these often intimidate people. That leads to no reacting by our side, hoping someone else would eventually step up for the person in need.
Social experiments show exactly that. In this one, two guys secretly film a homeless man begging on a street in New York. Then, they send their friend to sit next to the homeless man and pretend to be homeless too.
What happens next will break your heart into a million pieces. The homeless man is treated with utmost disrespect, and even gets slapped by a police officer, but the fact people are cruel to him doesn’t stop him from being kind in return.
This video is a must watch, it will make us rethink how we treat those that are less fortunate than us.
