Though a lot of white Americans do claim some Native ancestory like , "Yeah my grandma was part Cherokee "

 

Yeah a bunch of those dudes on my base got DNA testing. Not a single Cherokee among them bro. 

Anything to claim somebody else's land as yours.

Why do they always stem from USA/Canada ? 

A community develops around certain infrastructure.  A Gurdwara is the centrepoint with Sikh businesses around as well as a certain percentage of the community that have proximity to each other. 

There is a massive difference between the Sikh experience in the UK vs the US. The UK is a much better place to be a Sikh. The biggest difference-maker is population density. According to th

Oh Please, as If UK Punjabi Sikh women aren't perfect. Don't you guys have some Muslims to run off with? Then complain you were groomed.  

Everything out of the cultural marxist playbook :

racism, sexism, homophobia - all of the favoured buzz words. All that was missing was transphobia and pronouns. 

They call this intersectionality. This is pure divide and rule tactic.

You're doing the same thing by the looks of it. Completely adopting the language and rhetoric of rightwing whites. 

All the 'SJWs', 'marxist', 'communist', 'lefty', 'liberal', 'woke' type buzzwords that get them going! lol

 

Come on, surely you see this?

I am responding to the twitter impression. 

That twitter impression was talking about how Kaurs were being forced to have children and thought of as baby making machines. Who is forcing them to have children? We Sikhs have one of lowest birth rates. We are in  demographical decline.

That tweet uses every label to discredit the male under the sun.  Heternormative  (basically means being  straight), toxic masculinity  (basically anything related to being male is bad ). Then she uses the term "white". In this case, what have white people got to do with Sikh women being baby making machines. This Kaur has a problem with Sikh men.

The problem is that this is the dominant ideology, it is everywhere in the media. And do you know what happens with this ideology. Everybody turns on each other.

Even the white people are starting to play the victim narrative. Everyone is oppressed. If everything one is oppressed who is doing the oppressing?

KaurRepublic is a complete <banned word filter activated>. Her arguments make no sense. How is encouraging people to have more children the same thing as "forcing" people? Did that guy say anything suggesting that women should be forced to have more children? How is anyone "demanding" anything? That guy was highlighting a problem in our community and urging people who agree with him to maybe (if they want to) consider doing something about it.

 

Anyway, while I agree with critiques that you (and others) make about the feminist/identity politics crowd, you don't do yourself any favors by adopting far-right terminology (like "cultural marxism"). The far-right are no friends to Sikhs.

Just because I call out Cultural Marxism does not mean that I support Far Right Wing.

This is what people don't get, people on the left who are the real liberals are calling out the Cultural Marxists.

This ideology is turning people against each other.

Your only link to Sikhi you have supposedly is ancestral, and even that we have to take your word for.

You should write a book or an essay on the Sikh experience in the U.S.A. It's a stark departure from Sikhs who've settled in Europe.

 

By "Europe" I presume you mean "the UK."

From what I can tell, Sikhs in continental Europe have it even worse than Sikhs in the US.

 

Sikhs in the US suffer from being a tiny, sparsely distributed minority in a massive country with 330 million people.

Having said that, I think it has actually made American Sikhs more in touch with what a difficult position Sikhs are in. Sikhs in the UK and Canada often mistakenly think that we have a lot more power and influence in the world than we actually do.

For example, consider how Sikhs are only slightly outnumbered by Hindus in the UK. That has left some British Sikhs a bit clueless about our struggles in India because they can't conceive of the fact that Sikhs are outnumbered by Hindus in India by a ratio of 46 to 1.

    • WHY?  Do you think I haven't figured out that our fudhoos like prancing about at any given opportunity by now?  I don't get the vid? Was he trying to ask her out for a date in the maximally fudhoo way possible?   Who were the other panchoday he roped in for his synchronised 'bruin' bundhoo dance?

    • We need to squarely face that given our current numbers, we'll have to deal with 'economies of scale' so we'll be unlikely to be able to sell at prices comparable to similar mass produced mainstream items that have a large consumer base. I think the above sells at around £20 for instance. I'd say we have enough exemplar career types right now, we need to connect kids to their heritage more than this in whichever way we can.  You point about relatability depends on where the kids are growing up and the character of Sikhs around them.  I don't know about the current generation, but in the recent past there were strong, brave Sikhs who confronted things like race attacks etc., so it shouldn't be too much of a stretch. Plus I noticed that a lot of Sikhs seem overtly 'nerdy' in the US - outright braces, cheesy gormless grins and bifocals - parents should take take to sharpen them out of this at a young age if they can. Was talking to someone who was thinking of trying produce some kids books, and the point about having puerile, non-based sakhis came out, the conclusion was that such works need to incorporate a slight gritty dark edge to avoid the kids turning into unrealistic lulloos when older.  Been thinking about that graphic novel I posted about previously, it's such a shame that the diaspora panth (who would be the main consumers) couldn't forkout the £9000 being asked for. That's like £3000 each from the UK, US and Canada - where we all know we have plenty of loaded apnay. If anyone reading is one of these loaded apnay - please support and fund these things and maybe have one less flash motor or slightly less designer clothes. 
    • They are identify culturally Hindu but non-believers in God. Usually liberal brahmins psychos in India journalists, Gandhi supporters.  noticed too with Punjabi left liberal journalists too anti Sikh but religion in Panjabi
    • Those toys of regular jobs aren't profitable from a purely business perspective. When have western toys been relatable to bache?
