We’re back in Mississippi and Lauren is making a quick stop at babalu taco & tapas in Jackson Yeah, should be there in like 15 20 minutes. I’m just grabbing for the public She has no idea that while she’s grabbing her food. I see Trouble is just around the corner ready to grab her stop Within seconds a thief is reaching into her car and helping himself to her personal belongings burglary and broad daylight We filmed the same scenario once before in New York We had a white actor and a black actor playing our peoples at the end of the day Our white actor was stopped only one out of the five times Wow. Got it All while our black actor was stopped three out of the four times Show me hands Now we’re 1,200 miles to the south putting it to the test in Jackson Mississippi will reactions and results be the same We’ve dressed today’s actors in the same outfit from head to toe How often will they get away with the guns If you see a thief stealing from someone’s car, what would you do? We get our car into place There comes gable now Right away. We see that these women aren’t afraid to make a lot of noise when they see something wrong Stop him He’s stealing her stop and the chase begins The women take separate routes in hot pursuit of our thief and we’ve got them covered from all angles One races through the parking lot while this one searches behind the restaurant What did he look like Did you see that guy with the breath maybe boy hood II with a thief nowhere to be found The women returned to their table no offense, but I would leave my car running with the windows down either You know, that’s not real Spark there it is right there What happened here Why get involved why get involved because it could have been us but you could have gotten hurt Uh, yeah we could have but we didn’t you didn’t even think about that No, we didn’t think about it. Especially her she went further than I did But you were the loudest I am the loudest I have been known to be the loudest I’ll have you server right out. I’m John. This is a man we run it again And now will this group of dentists be as loud? And as soon as they see what’s going on here they jump right in get ready, right Like a superhero in scrubs this customer takes matters and a chair into his own hands What would you do security rushes in Take another look it’s one of the most frantic moments of the day the chair comes within inches of hitting our actor Time to break things up before anyone gets hurt. Hey guys. I’m John quinones. This is part of a TV show called What would you do? We wanna see how people reacted down here I saw some of it right now I think they pretty much take care of each other down here Does that say something about Jackson in the South Dixie? Whether we are friendly people and that we really enjoy taking care of each other and there were a nice solid community Yeah, wait, you’re not gonna play that across the nation We don’t really want people to know how good it is down here Now whether the thief was black or white would it matter Carrie how to steal hit him with a chair This is our actor. He’s gay brother. You know, what saved you what’s that? I didn’t want to miss in the car Just like we saw in New York, it looks like our black actor just isn’t going to get away with the crime now Let’s change things up and see what the reactions are when the white actor tries his hand Loren pulls up right next to this group They all notice the thief and They’re stunned the whole thing happens right in front of their eyes and in seconds The thief is gone This customer takes off to track down the thief We’ll right behind him as he finds been in a back alley And let’s break the scene not a second too soon, what would you do? Oh, yeah, I can’t believe this this is not even real What did you see once he ran off really quickly, like hold on We ran in there, you know, I guess grabbed or made help. I’m no one special just I would hope anyone do that though So we run it one last time another diner in scrubs sits down for lunch and oh Should we lock down the chairs? Our thug Stolen goods in hand Ben makes his getaway Greg Tisdale is right behind it And Joshua Shirky just happened to be in the parking lot as our thief tried to make his getaway He heard the commotion and jumped right in Break it right. Hello everybody I’m John quinones. This is a TV show called what would we do? Why step in Because I thought I was doing the right thing Yeah, there’s a lot of thugs around this area. So, you know, I grew up around here. So Why wouldn’t you help out why is it important that we look out for each other like this? Well, I think you just answered your own question Because it’s important that we look out for each other. It didn’t matter whether the thief was black or white Why would it matter that divas deep? So for Greg and Joshua blowing the whistle on a thief was almost second nature But they certainly weren’t the only ones we saw it over and over again with both our thieves the good people of Jackson, Mississippi Yelled out or jumped in the same number of times whether the actor was black or white To catch a thief we want the world to change. It’s gotta start with one person You got to be that example if you want other people to see it and live by it You don’t go telling people what to do. You need to show them how to do
