Lets Talk About Turbans (Gasp!)
Funny or Die x We Are Sikhs
What the Sikh Turban Means
Today, and for the last 500 years, many Sikhs around the world have worn the turban as an expression of their faith and their commitment to serve humanity. Throughout history, Sikhs have worn the turban to signal their readiness to protect all people against injustice, regardless of faith, gender, caste, or color.
Today, a Sikh American who wears a turban signal that he or she is always ready to put him- or herself forward to serve the community’s needs. It represents their commitment to equality, unity, and service that are at the heart of the American ethic.
99% of people you see wearing a turban in America are Sikhs.
