''Riceman'' and his team want to compare how people would react to a pretty girl begging money for makeup vs a homeless girl begging money for food. To control, they have to the same girl play both roles. They filmed her playing each role for one hour. At the end, over 10 people talked to her and 6 people helped her when she begged for makeup and only 3 people approached her when she begged for food. It’s really bothering to know people would rather help someone with a creative or unusual sign than someone who has legitimate need.
I hope people in our society can look past someone’s appearance and help those who’s really in need
