"Islam isn't a race". Funny how brown Hindu/Sikh people are always the ones who get targeted though. Almost like most Americans already have their minds made up about what "Islam" entails.

Sikh man in Kent says he was told,

Wonder if the gun toting racists would also venture to shoot blonde Bosnian Muslims? Or what about a Muslim that looks like this guy:

But of course if you're brown and wear something on your head you MUST be a terrorist even though you may not be Muslim at all!

I would guess a 50% or better probability that this guy made up this story. We'll eventually find out. If true, what an idiot.

If not true, you should apologize. There's also precedent of this happening, with Sikhs being targeted after 9/11.

Very Sad - there are indeed some stupid people in the world.

The Canadian Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan is a Sikh, he was being interviewed on the news the other week.

I've got nothing to apologize for, it's just that 99% of these stories have been later proved false, those are the odds.


It is sad, in the highly unlikely event he is telling the truth, that anyone would do such a thing.

Unfortunate, but not surprising. Most know Sikhs are not muslims, but entering our society with strange garb and customs will always be viewed with askance. That's a fact, Jack!

Newcomers could blend in, but are encouraged not to, as a sign of defiance.
Wonder who's giving them that advice! LOL.

In recent years, the Left (Obamists) has encouraged these cultural party-crashers to come here and decline to assimilate.
Their fascination with "multiculturalism" has created this mess.

The tension is only going to increase as the newcomers and their supporters become more belligerent.

Another major attack on the homeland and all bets are off.

Just my observation. Any thoughts ?
