Blinde arts laat zien hoe onbeschoft mensen met hem omgaan

Amit Patel woont in Londen, en verloor drie jaar geleden zijn zicht. Sindsdien loopt het met geleidehond Kika door de stad. Hij kwam er al snel achter dat mensen niet echt opletten, of gewoon ronduit onbeschoft en asociaal doen, als hij en zijn hond voorbij willen.

It all started when people barged me out of the way, they hit her with umbrellas, bags, I get shoulder charged every day and when my wife looks back at the footage he can see they have done it deliberately. They have loads of space to get past but they seem to think it is fun to barge into a blind person. Kika always sits to my left hand side so we often block the escalator and people will hit her with bags and umbrellas to get her to move out of the way.

Om de ellende in beeld te brengen, bond hij een GoPro op de rug van Kika:

The worst part is the tutting and negative comments behind me. People are so rude and arrogant and assume they can do whatever they want. One lady even said I should apologise to the people behind her for holding them up. I asked her if I should apologise for being blind and she said 'yes'. Sometimes I wonder who is the blind person when there are people glued to their mobile phones.
