A Social Experiment Illustrating the Relative Honesty of the Rich and the Poor


This video does a good job of demonstrating what people can expect when they are entering a rich neighborhood compared to a poor neighborhood. The person conducting the social experiment pretends to be a blind man holding a winning lottery ticket, and he asks people in two different neighborhoods if they can tell him whether or not the lottery ticket really is a winner. The first neighborhood is a wealthy neighborhood. He talks to homeless people in the second neighborhood.

The rich people he talks to both lie to him. One of them tries to steal the ticket and gets hostile when he reveals that it was a social experiment. The homeless people are both honest about the ticket being a winner. The homeless woman is gracious about finding out that the social experiment is, in fact, a social experiment. This is a video that people should please SHARE on Facebook, since it communicates an important message.
