TV show unable to find Arizonans to support racial profiling

The show What Would You Do? went to Arizona and planted actors in restaurants to act out this scenario: an off-duty security guard asks a Hispanic man for identification. In every instance, the other people at the restaurant came to the defense of the Hispanic man.

Over the course of the two-day shoot, with five shoots each day, we never once encountered someone who defended the security guard’s point of view. It did not matter if the scenario was a man alone, a man with a family, or two men, each time we got the same reaction: People crossed racial lines to help and defend each other from unjust profiling.
