21 "Sikh Park" Comics That Perfectly Capture Life In The Sikh Diaspora
"Do you sleep in turban? How long is your hair? Do you use conditioner?"
"Sikh Park," an art project inspired by the popular show "South Park," was created by artist Dalbir as a way to bring attention to specific joys and struggles of the Sikh-American experience.
"Most of them come from personal experiences," Dalbir told BuzzFeed in an email. "Some are just insight into Punjabi/Sikh Culture. Originally the focus was mostly issues faced by Sikhs in US (as I had just moved out of US). Immigration, racial profiling at airports, mistaken identity etc. I lived in the US during 9/11 and Sikhs faced the brunt of hate crimes as we were being mistaken for being Arabs/Taliban. The comic was one way to express life as a Sikh in the diaspora."
