A “Response to shooting at Oak Creek Sikh Temple”
I’m passing along a video that a friend of mine sent me this morning that was created by a personal friend of hers regarding the Oak Creek Sikh Temple shooting. Watch the video and do some reading on what took place.
As I’ve written in my previous post: “Dealing with Conflict: A Tale of Monsters and 2 Wolves“:
“The Unheard Voices of 9/11 campaign was launched by the Sikh Coalition, the largest Sikh civil rights organization in the United States to highlight the backlash of discrimination and violence toward Muslims and those perceived to be Muslims that followed the September 11th attacks.
Even today, American citizens who fit into a certain stereotype continue to be targeted for hate crimes, employment discrimination, and school bullying by ordinary citizens, and profiling by law enforcement agencies.
Here, Rabia Said remembers an experience she had with discrimination when she was eight years old.
The organization South Asian Americans Leading Together (SAALT) created a video campaign asserting that America is for all of us.”
Attempting to “right” wrongs that we feel were perpetuated by others, especially against those who had nothing to do with what happened in the first place only serves to continue the cycle of wrongdoing.
