A popular YouTuber conducted a social experiment (video below) in which he posed as a blind man and asked people to confirm whether or not a lottery ticket he had was a winning one.
Jag Singh conducted the experiment in both rich and poor neighborhoods in Modesto, California, and highlighted the shocking results. In the video, Singh first approaches a man in a well-off area of town to help him confirm the winning numbers.
“Is it a winner?” Singh asks the man. “My mom gave it to me and she told me it’s a big winner.” Stunningly, the man grabs the ticket from Singh’s hand and walks away once he says he’s blind.
The ticket, which was a $500 winner, is subsequently taken by another resident in a rich neighborhood, who refuses to give it back to Singh after confirming its legitimacy.
Singh then asks homeless individuals to confirm the ticket’s legitimacy — many of whom are enthusiastic about Singh’s win and even congratulatory.
“$500 winner!” one homeless man says.
Another woman also expresses excitement upon confirming Singh’s win — prompting him to reveal himself and give her a reward for her honesty.
