I know many Sikhs on the east coast, lots of friends and families.
The number of Sikhs and brown people that have been robbed, murdered, stabbed, shot at by blacks is a lot higher than the likes of GurjantGnostic (I suspect is a white middle class surburban liberal who lives somewhere around the west coast ) would realise.
There are cities in the US, where blacks make up the majority population, the local politicians are black, the mayor is black, the Chief of Police is black, the police department has substantial number of black police officers. Yet all these problems persist.
A lot of non American people seem to think that the US is like the UK or Canada but the US is more like a continent, there are differences and nuances.
A lot of non US Sikhs have a black fetish with all the gangster rap and like to appropriate it though never having been to a black neighbourhood.
People think it's South Central LA with NWA. What people don't realise is that LA does not have has many blacks (west coast in general does not as compared with other parts of the US) and it is full of brown skinned Hispanics and yellow skinned Asians.
Those brown skinned Hispanics can't stand black people. A lot of those Korean business owners cannot stand them either.
A small minority of Indo-Canadians doing drugs and killings which are specific to other drug dealers and gangsters is not the same as looting and burning down neighbourhoods.
Vancouver ain't New York, Surrey ain't Jamaica in Queens. SE Vancouver and Burnaby is not Baltimore or South Side Chicago.
If you actually travelled in North America you'd see the difference.
