Michigan’s Gulshan Singh raps against bullying

Sikh teen Gulshan Singh, from Michigan, took on bullying through rap and video:

The video, titled “Let It Out,” sums up the emotions of a Sikh teenager who is harassed because he looks different. Mr. Singh said the video, which was recently showcased at the Sikh International Film Festival in New York, is not based on a specific person but on an experience shared by many Sikhs, including many of his friends. Turbans and beards, religious requirements, makes Sikhs stand out in the U.S., where they are a small minority.

Read the full story – including a commentary on the vulnerability of Asian Americans towards bullying – at the Wall Street Journal. The lyrics to Gulshan Singh’s track are available here.
