Primetime: What Would You Do? is an American television news magazine and hidden camera show broadcast on ABC since 2008 as part of the Primetime series. The series is hosted by news correspondent John Quiñones. In the series, actors act out scenes of conflict or illegal activity in public settings while hidden cameras videotape the scene, and the focus is on whether or not bystanders intervene, and how. Variations are also usually included, such as changing the genders, the races or the clothing of the actors performing the scene, to see if bystanders react differently. Quiñones appears at the end to interview the bystanders about their reactions. As the experiment goes on, psychology professors, teachers, or club members watch and discuss the video with Quiñones, explaining and making inferences on the bystanders' reactions.

------------------------------

The reason of this thread is to show to some viewers who never stepped a foot in the USA and ignore that American people can be same as any other race, culture or ethnicity.

After seeing an anti-American posts once in a while in to this forum coming from some American bashers with or without reasons but with strong intention to spoil the reputation and image from  American citizens, it´s convenient to balance those wrong ideas, how? with videos.

Of course, there are always exceptions. At the end of each program, they tell the quantity of people who have a proper reaction in front of different situations shown in the tv program and always is more than half of the by passers in each situation, (can see it in youtube in complete version)

Denial, according the psychoanalysts, is one of the most primary mechanisms of defense. It consists in the attitude of denying or minimizing obvious facts of reality with which the individual can´t  cope or whose irresponsibility is unable to meet.

And I agree.

Great thread!!! {:soso_e179:} Need to admit that these videos made me cry even though I watched them before :)

People always talk about economy and military power but this just shows me that if your society does not have these type of people in it, it will never be great.
