Turban Branding

by today’s Urban Chameleon contributor

Didchu know that after 911 the MTA (Metropolitan Transportation Authority) was requiring Sikh and Muslim workers who want to continue wearing turbans or any kind of headwear that they can only be blue and must be branded with an MTA logo.

WHAT?!!! Yes of course because a uniform has definitely stopped terrorist and mass killers in the past before. This kind of no sense nonsense kills me. If our best measures of precaution are to brand turbans we are in serious trouble. Not to mention this is just blatant disrespect to the Muslim community enforcing workers to represent a kind of scarlet letter because of the actions of an extremist group but please don't get it twisted Muslim does not = terrorist. If that’s the case shouldn’t every white man with the crazy twinkle in his eye looking like he’s going to shoot up the place where some kind of identification?AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH, DUCK!!! COVER YOURSELF!!!

Sorry, I thought I just saw a white man about to shoot.

Anyhow, the new news on this front is that the city council has joined the coalition in protesting this ridiculousnessness turban branding to have the rule turned over.
