Encouragement: What Would You Do-Wheelchair Discrimination

So this week What Would You Do producers switched things up a little by allowing viewers take the wheel and submitting their own scenarios based on personal experiences. The end result was a jampacked episode fall of issues I’d never thought of, including being discriminated against because of your hair color. One segment tugged at my heart, though. It highlights the ongoing struggle of the disabled community to be looked at as independent people just trying to live as productive citizens in today’s society. The idea was submitted by Christina who was born with with spina bifida; her winning entry consisted of a wheelchair-bound person and a overly protective fellow customer.

The goal: to not only shed light on the sometimes condescending treatment (yet well-meaning) of the disabled.. It also struggles to answer the age-old question: To Help or Not to Help?
