Would you intervene? Easy to say yes….

This is a sociological experiment to see if people will intervene when an African American woman is treated unfairly.

While most people are unaffected by the discrimination they observe, others are completely offended on behalf of the victim.

It would be better, however, if the same experiment was attempted using a white shopper to determine more accurately if people are discriminating on the basis of race, or just don’t want to get involved in general.

Watch what happens when one woman, at the end of the video, stands up for the shopper loudly and clearly.
