Mansimran: A Sikh Teenager Deals With Bullying

Share on  and Twitter

Meet Mansimran. He’s an 18 year old all-American guy who likes Starbucks, hoops, and robotics. He’s a student, an older brother, and an active member of his Sikh religious community. Sometimes, when strangers see his turban, and the color of his skin, they lean out their car window and call him a “terrorist.” He’s not alone: especially since September 11, Sikh Americans and other communities have become targets of discrimination, racial profiling and bullying, and hate crimes. How does Mansimran respond to the harassment? “Come over here, sit down, I’ll tell you about Sikhism, I’ll tell you who I am”. Such as when he spoke at the United Sikhs summit telling members of Congress to support human rights across cultures. Watch Mansimran and take action to ensure that the U.S. government restores fair immigration and racial justice.
