@Danka: Re: MISTAKEN IDENTITY: Sikhs in America
As far as I know, this documentary is not available in its entirety on youTube or elsewhere. I think it was produced and marketed directly for TV. You might be able to order the DVD documentary (if there are any left) by emailing: email@example.com

I have a lot of respect for turban wearing sikhs. Here in Ireland, I see a lot of discrimination and I can notice or sense the fear of people not familiar with the Sikhs. After 9/11, many Irish Sikhs were thrown out of their accomodations/jobs because people thought there are brothers of terrorists... Sad
@appaloosa Where we can see the full documentary?
I would like to see some depiction of all the religions. List them all: atheism, ethical humanism, Catholicism, [Sikhism], etc., etc. All of them. And you notice that each of those religions, these value systems, have two principles they share in common. And the two principles started with monotheism and the Jews: tzedakah and tikkun olam. [Tzedakah] means generally: we must treat one another as brother and sister. We should show one another respect and dignity, because we are like things. We are human beings in a world that has nothing else like us. And we ought to treat one another with love, charity-use your own words. And the second principle is: Well, what do you do with this relationship? Well, we don't know exactly how we got here, why we got here, etc., etc. That's for minds larger than ours. But we know that we are like kinds, and we should work together to make this as good an experience as possible. [Tikkun Olam] -- let us repair the universe. Now Islam believes that. Buddhism that has no god believes it. [Sikhism believes it]. Every ethical humanist I ever met believes it. Those two principles: we're supposed to love one another and we're supposed to work together to make the experience better. That's all the religion you need, really, to make a success of this planet. And I'd like to see that in 9/11 somewhere. I'd like to see that captured somehow.
