Imagine walking through a crowd and suddenly seeing a well-dressed little girl who seems to have lost her parents. What would you do?
Without hesitation, most people answer that they’d approach her and ask her what’s going on. But what if the scenario changes a bit and the 6-year-old is homeless and dirty? Would her social class make a difference?
