Blacks Friendlier to Wheelchair Users?

Ok, this is an interesting topic for a debate. According to a poster on the website "Urban Baby": "Which culture or group do you think has been the warmest and kindest.. meaning .. they make eye contact, they smile, they help with doors or even say a few words of greeting?"

According to the poster, in their experience:

"African Americans were far and away the warmest and kindest people toward the person in the wheelchair. I include many afro-carribean people, (eg. Jamaican) as well."

"Whites and Hispanics were generally equal. Maybe the whites were slightly less willing to interact. Least friendly and avoiding eye contact almost all of the time.. east Asian."

Does anyone have personal first hand experience with this?? If so, let us hear from you.
