Bay Area Report: 74% of Sikh Boys Bullied

“In the first report of its kind for the Bay Area, the Sikh Coalition, a national nonprofit with an office in Fremont, released findings last week showing that hundreds of Sikh children report feeling teased and taunted, being called “terrorist” and “diaper head.” More than 150,000 Sikhs call the Bay Area home, and students from San Jose to Vacaville report that they have been taunted, punched, even threatened with scissors. Their perception of bigotry and bullying far surpasses the national average.”
