    Just wanted to clear a few things up...

    95% of Muslim men DO NOT wear head-wrappings. The only ones that do tend to live in Saudi Arabia and ride Camels for a living.

    100% of Sikh men DO wear head-wrappings. The Sikhs are a militaristic religion from Northern India, and have spent a good 400 years fighting with Muslims.


    Why do I state this? Because many Americans after 9/11 mistakenly attacked American Sikhs because of their headscarves. Talk about moronic.

    For comparison:

    So, next time you feel like bellowing racial slurs, be sure to choose the correct one. Thank you.


    This has been a public service announcement.

    Even after I started this thread, someone just used the wrong slur again!

    This may be stereotypical, but in my experience, you can always tell a Sikh because those dudes are tall. As in way taller than your average Indian or middle eastern.

    Not too familiar w/ the actual principles of Sikh. Is Sikh historically tied to Islam, and if so, how?

    Well I still don't get the connection between the head wrappings, racism and where you linked on that thread, but ok.

    Well, they are related, in the sense that Sikh land was the first part of India conquered by the Muslim Mughal Empire.

    Theologically, Sikhs have nothing in common with Muslims. Sikhs don't believe in the God of Abraham at all.

    Is this thread really a call to use the RIGHT slurs?
