A Lesson in Indentification

It seems recent events have once again shown how lacking social studies are in this country to the point that some dumb fucks don't know the difference between various cultures and religions because - well it doesn't matter cause they're not Amurricans!

So here is a refresher course. This is is a Sikh:

The men wear beards and turbans as part of their religious identity. They have nothing to do with Islam. In fact, in some parts of the world they don't like Muslims.

These are Muslims. Most are not terrorists in fact, only a very small percentage would be classified as extremists. The vast majority of Muslims  DO NOT condone violence of any kind. In some parts of the world, particularly Iran, Iraq and Afghanistan, Muslims have beards and wear what looks like a turban. Usually it's a cap like the ones in the above picture. Otherwise they look pretty much like everyone else. Many men don't even have a beard.

So stop jumping to confused and ignorant conclusions the next time you see someone  in this country wearing a turban because they are a Sikh not a muslim. Got it?
