If Jesus would have walked into an American airport security, they would have screened him twice for his beard and middle Eastern looks.

I was doing some work in a Sikh guy's house and while I'm an atheist, I had never heard of the Sikh religion at the time and was curious about it. So I was talking to the guy and he showed me his shrine and broke it all down for me. But my dumbass coworker kept wanting to talk to the guy about Islam and doing his damnedest to draw parallels between the religions, essentially refusing to acknowledge Sikhism as it's own distinct religion. I was mortified by the fact that my coworker was being profoundly racist but at the same time in awe of just how cool the gentleman was about it. If someone was being that ignorant and disrespectful in my house I would have physically thrown them out the front door. Sikhs are the most chill people I've ever met.

The “turban” that we, the Sikh wear, symbolises “standing apart from the crowd”. It is a way to make sure the people around us know that there is a Sikh around. The meaning behind this is simple : it’s our core value to help anyone, ANYONE, in need. We simply cannot walk away from it. And this is a known fact by many communities around the world. That is why our spiritual leaders taught us to wear Turbans (amongst other telling signs for a Sikh) so that if anyone is ever in trouble in any region, they can always look out for a Sikh and approach them for help.
