To know the difference between Sikhism and Islam? After 9/11 attacks on Sikhs has gone up drastically, and we still see the bias today - anyone remember the subway ad vandalized with the Sikh model on it?
Now there is a video, "Don't Freak, I'm a Sikh," that tries to dispel the fear and misconceptions in light of the attention given Sikhs because of prejudice and ignorance.
What do you think about the video? Or about the need for such a video to be made? Any thoughts/comments about Sikhism, etc, to add? What about Islam? Is the prejudice that still exists for followers of that faith justified, or should people know better by now than to generalize?

About all I know is Sikhs aren't Muslim. They carry a dagger for religious reasons. They wear turbans and if baptized don't shave, even if female with a beard.
Don't remember who shared the image and info on the Baptized but really appreciate it because education and knowledge are valuable tools against ignorance.

Haters are going to hate. Even if you educated them about the differences, they would not care. And if they want to judge over a billion Muslims on the actions of a few, perhaps they should examine the atrocities done in the name of their God. Pot, meet Kettle.
