Blind Man And His Guide Dog Show Everyone How Thoughtless People Can Be

By Aimee Lutkin

If you think there's nothing wrong with humanity, just try being a disenfranchised person for a day. Drop all your privilege and observe how people of color, women, people with disabilities and the trans community get treated on a daily basis. Its enough to make you vomit in rage.

Amit Patel is a former doctor who lives in the U.K. Patel lost his eyesight in 2012, and has relied on the assistance of his guide dog, Kika, ever since to get around in public, CBS News reports. Patel became virally famous after sharing footage from a GoPro attached to Kika's harness, after showing a video of abuse they both often receive while out and about.

“It isn’t to rat anybody out,” Patel said, “it’s to say she works really hard, and she gives me my independence. You take that from her, you take that from me. You wouldn’t take someone’s wheelchair from them.”
