Rocking a Turban

Jagmeet Singh and Selma Blair

A wise man once told me that a pendulum never swings to the middle and stops there. Perhaps this explains the extreme “Cultural appropriation” views that are so common these days. I appreciate the recent response by NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh to a media storm about Selma Blair wearing a head wrap like:

“In the Sikh tradition we celebrate our shared humanity, the connection between us all and the idea that we are all one. It’s totally cool for anyone to rock a turban. In fact you’re making it easier for people who get bullied for wearing one by tearing down the stigma. So thank you […] Also, not gonna lie, y’all look hella elegant.”

Thank you Mr. Singh. We need more of this in our country.
