It’s really hurtful that some people see turbans and view that as something to be afraid of.

Sikhs wear the turban/have long hair as a way to be publicly identified as in service to others. The idea is if you see someone in a turban, you’d know you could go up and ask for help.
A couple responses to things in my mentions:

1) Just because you didn’t know something doesn’t mean it’s not “widely known” or true. Read a book.
2) Comparing oppression and suffering only helps the oppressor.
Some more voices/places for you to learn about Sikhs: @SikhProf @SikhFeminist @sikh_coalition @valariekaur @JakaraMovement

Also episode 3x02 of #UnitedShades with @wkamaubell. Maybe we can do a watch party if @CNN reairs it.
