Does Appearance Change How People Are Treated?

Does Appearance Change How People Are Treated?

The reason this video was created was to see if appearance changes the way people are treated. Most of us know the answer is sadly yes. It is a social experiment showing a man nicely dressed using crutches, and falling down. Then you see a homeless man falling down while using crutches. Before I watched this, I thought that possibly a few more people helped the nicely dressed man over the one dressed up as a homeless person. It was eye-opening and sad to see the actual results.

This really makes me wonder why some people think one human being deserves help over another. I was taught to help others. Where do we start to decide that one person is somehow more worthy than another of our help? After watching this, can you honestly say you would have helped both of the men?
