Response Paper The High Cost of Looking Like an All-American Guy This short article about is about a 20 year old Sikh by the name of Parwinder who lives with his parents He is a taxi driver and goes to school After the tragic incident on September 11 2001 he fears he might get hurt or killed by Americans because he comes across as a Muslim Parwinder believes that it is almost impossible to live in the United States now without being accused of being Muslim if one has a turban and a beard His family is very religious and their roots are very important to them Parwinder buys a scissor and a hat planning on cutting his beard When he cuts his beard he cuts some hair as well so the hat can fit on his head His parents are heart broken from this cowardly action he has done Parwinders uncle is very ashamed of him Parwinder says that it is hard to live in this country if you look Muslim after September 11 It is hard as a young man he says He is very ashamed of what he did after he has already done it He rather fit in and not to be looked at as a murderer than to stand strong for what he believes in In my opinion this is a very hard situation to make a decision On one side he feels threatened by society and on the other he feels like he is betraying all he believes in and stands for It is hard to say what is more important To some it is religion faith and roots To others society is more important Parwinder is just a young man being torn to both sides I personally was brought up believing that religion and roots are always more important than society My religion Greek Orthodox has very deep roots that I believe I would stand up for
