    The Americans are not too knowledgeable about the world or communities and people.

    Joe the Plumber and Sarah Palin are the archetypal.

    Therefore, having a beard and a turban is a dangerous attire in the US to stay alive.

    That is the honest truth.

    Family members still awaiting word. All crowed at police line. Some people are saying that their relatives/family members including children are being held as hostages, others evacuated to nearby area.

    OAK CREEK, Wis. – A police dispatcher in Wisconsin says there has been a shooting at a Sikh temple outside of Milwaukee.
    Oak Creek Police Department dispatcher Stephanie Uljanec says the shooting took place Sunday morning at the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin but she doesn't know how many people are shot or if there are fatalities.
    There are more than a dozen ambulances parked outside the temple, and police have corralled media and a handful of bystanders to an area near the temple.
    Fran McLaughlin, spokeswoman for the Milwaukee County Sheriff's Department, says a call came in at 10:26 a.m. She says officers are at the scene but she has no other information to report.
    Oak Creek is south of Milwaukee along Lake Michigan.

    NBC tried to blame the Aurora, Colorado shootings on the Tea Party. Joe the Plumber was the perpetrator here?:rolleyes:

    My experience in Milwaukee (Oak Creek is a Milwaukee suburb) suggests this is the not the behavior of general populace. People here are friendly. You would find non Caucasians roaming and mingling with others in Downtown Milwaukee or in Suburb hotspots at any time of day or night.
    It is the work of a deranged mind.

    As I said before on this subject......Americans are fools when it comes to general knowledge about these things.They would rather know what their characterless celebrity ate yesterday but they would not know the different between a Sikh and Muslim.In case they knew they would NEVER dare these cowards attack on Sikhs. :shocked:

    They live in a Christian dominated community of broken families where there is not much room for everyone to learn about the other religions and ways of life.

    Also it's not entirely the fault of Americans/Whites but also of Sikhs themselves since they don't seem to come out of their low profile.Forget about US because even in India a lot of people still don't properly know about Sikhism.Sikhs comes in limelight in the West mostly when there are some instances like these or when there were some internal clashes in EU on Gurudwara funds/seats. :tsk:
