Woman goes on Racist Rant & Canadian Sikh Responds Perfectly.

Video of Canadian Sikh politician Jagmeet Singh’s calm response to racist rant by woman takes social media by storm (in.news.yahoo.com)

She talks about personal space, but is all up in his. She has no idea that he’s not a Muslim. He refuses to throw Muslims under the bus:

On Saturday, Singh published a statement to social media explaining his response:

“Many people have commented that I could have just said I’m not Muslim. In fact many have clarified that I’m actually Sikh. While I’m proud of who I am, I purposely didn’t go down that road because it suggests their hate would be ok if I was Muslim,” he said.
“We all know it’s not. I didn’t answer the question because my response to Islamophobia has never been ‘I’m not Muslim.’ It has always been and will be that ‘hate is wrong.”

Redditor: “not only has he experienced this before, but he learned how to just shrug it off and face hate with tolerance.
Additionally this lady wanted to silence him, ended up handing him a megaphone to the world.”
