Well, not to be all dirty furriner immigrant spawn or anything, but I kinda think a Sikh in a Captain America outfit is quintessentially what America is supposed to be about. The good parts, anyway.

Walker: If he would have walked around like that in Texas or the south he would have been killed....several times.

FTA: 3) If you stereotype people, then you have fallen victim of the malady itself. To all the people who have given me advice to stay away from white Republican places like Jersey, Florida, Texas and the South, let me say this. If I had stereotyped the world the way it may see me in my turban and beard, I would never have  walked out as Captain America. Stop projecting your insecurities. There are many good people all over America despite the political labels we wear. Intolerant asses reside all over the place. New York has its fair share.

Actually, southerners as a rule tend to be a lot smarter then we get credit.  Sure we have some idiots, and there are some places in the south that still think it is the 1950s, but generally most people get along.  Sorry if that doesn't confirm to the stereotypes you have formed in your head.

As far as religions go, Sikhism seems to be one of the better ones.

And that's the problem.

Just so we're being clear, that's bad. Being unwilling to consider points of view different than your own, including things like "what does it mean to be patriotic?" and meeting those differing points of view with deadly force, should not be a point of pride.


It isn't for the most part.  80% of the South is still wrongfully judged by the example of the 20% of it's population that remains woefully ignorant and stuck in the past.  I am from Tennessee and have no problem with other peoples ethnicity, religion, country of origin, or traditions.  Different points of view make for interesting conversations and enlightening experiences.

You're right, and it's the one in the Captain America costume.  The other one is an ignorant jackass.

This.


In so much that he repeated the act of dressing up and going outside, this time with the Totally Biased crew. The first time he did it (and made it to fark) it was for a photographer.
