A New Yorker based Sikh has found the most unique way to spread awareness about racial dicrimination.

Vishavjit Singh, an editorial cartoonist in US, dresses up like Captain America to educate people about the Sikh identity.


"In late 2011, I penned a vision of Captain America with a turban and beard into a poster for New York City Comic Con. This inspired Fiona Aboud, a talented photographer to envision the 2-D image in the third dimension. Inspired in turn by her work on Sikhs in America I donned the spirit of Captain America on a beautiful summer day in New York City. The overwhelmingly enthusiastic response to the article inspired a second journey on the streets of New York," reads his page on Sikhtoons.com.
