Sikhs mistaken again

The Indian Express reports a ten fold increase in race related crimes in London after the recent London blasts. As after 9/11 sikhs are being targeted mistakenly. There has been a petrol bomb attack on a gurdwara in Kent and an attack on a gurdwara in Bradford. And all because common people don't understand the difference between headgears. To prevent such mistakes, Pulitzer winning cartoonist, Anne Telnaes had published this wonderful cartoon after 9/11. This cartoon should be posted at all traffic signals and before religious institutions in large print.

I live in East Texas, and the city of Tyler nearby gets about five reports per week of "Arab terrorists! Right here on our street!"

What they are seeing is Mexican day-labor on the way to work.

Here's the racist punch-line: the police generally hold them in jail for 24 hours, "just to be sure."

Sometimes I don't know whether to laugh or cry.
