Kids Bullying a Boy in a Park� A Couple Fighting in Public� A Racist Taxi Driver� How Will People Handle the Situation?

�Primetime� Airs Thursday, March 23 at 10:00 p.m., E.T.

What would you do if you saw bullies ganging up on an innocent kid or a couple fighting in the park -- the boyfriend on the verge of physically harming the woman? �Primetime� continues a hidden camera series and tests what people do when confronted with ethical dilemmas that force them to act or not. Whether walking right by or getting involved in these scenarios, the reactions people have are fascinating. �Primetime� also takes the experiment further, looking at whether perception influences people�s reactions. Will dressing the bullies tougher or changing the race of the fighting couple affect how people respond? John Qui�ones reports on �Primetime,� THURSDAY, MARCH 23 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.

Then: How will passengers handle a taxi driver who goes on an extensive racist rant filled with hateful ethnic slurs... will they tell him to stop, keep quiet, or maybe even join in? What some people think and openly say about race in America is surprising, including a woman who says all Arabs should be sent back to Ali Baba and a man who talks about using Mexicans and Puerto Ricans for target practice. What�s more intriguing is that many of the passengers agree to talk with John Qui�ones and be on camera. Over the four-day experiment, some people will challenge the cab driver�s racism, but will any of them tell him to stop or get out of the car?

DIANE SAWYER, CHRIS CUOMO, CYNTHIA McFADDEN and JOHN QUI�ONES are the anchors of �PRIMETIME.� DAVID SLOAN is the executive producer.
