Mans Racist Snapchat Story Targets Sleeping Sikh On Plane Flight

Sleeping on a plane is hard enough. Itís worse when a fellow passenger mocks you on Snapchat the whole time and suggests youíre a terrorist.

Thatís what a Sikh worshipper en route to Indianapolis had to endure last week. Screenshots of the posts are sparking outrage on Twitter.

The prejudiced posts were made by an unidentified man, but were captured for posterity by Dr. Simran Jeet Singh, an assistant professor in the religion department at Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas.

The flight apparently landed without incident, but Dr. Singhís screenshots of the xenophobic remarkís are striking a chord on Twitter, having received more than 7,200 retweets and 8,600 likes since Thursday.

Singh said the types of reactions exemplified by the Snapchat poster are typical.

1. To be completely honest

I would much rather sit next to the Sikh than the little brat on Snapchat. I've come to avoid teenyboppers and their constant cell phone clinging.

2. Historically speaking Sikhs have fought opression

and have a history fighting Islam, especially the Moghuls..

Ironic the RW dumbass is mocking a supposed ally.

So it goes.

6. Many American Sikhs don't want to throw another group under the bus

by announcing to everyone that they're not Muslims.

3. The poster should be easy to identify. How did these snaps go public?
