American Turban

The Sikh Captain America takes on New York

The FXX network’s television show Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell has not shied away from Sikh-related topics. After the mass shooting of Sikhs by a white supremacist in Oak Creek, Wisconsin, in August of last year, the show featured a segment to help eliminate confusion about the Sikh identity, and last month, highlighted the issues Sikh Americans face with TSA screening policies.

Vishavjit Singh is an editorial cartoonist who in the past year experimented with wearing a Captain America costume as a turban-wearing and bearded Sikh on the streets of New York. His experience was reported on Salon magazine in September.

Last night, the two stories combined. Totally Biased’s Hari Kondabolu brought to our television screens Vishavjit Singh as the Sikh Captain America on New York’s streets to gauge public reaction.
