ABC Primetime’s “What Would You Do?” Segment Features A Muslim

2 03 2008

The ABC network here in the US has been featuring a limited primetime series titled: “What Would You Do?”  The basis of the show is to test how people will react in various situations. They set up hidden cameras, hire actors/actresses ,and work with businesses, etc to stage various scenerios to test how the regular people around will react. Will they step in? Will they walk away? Or will they participate?

Recently, they set up a scenerio in a roadside bakery in Waco, TX.  The scene was a Muslim woman (in a headscarf) trying to order something and the man behind the counter refusing her service because she is a Muslim. The clerk uses very harsh language and makes prejudice comments to her. So, how do the people around react?
