Internet Reacts To Racist Meme By Turning Victim Into Hero
Earlier this year this Sikh basketball player’s image was utilised by some morons online within a racist meme. Thankfully the internet has struck back.
Darsh Singh was the NCAA’s first turbaned Sikh basketball player, and he was once the co-captain of his team at Trinity University.
The meme suggested that Darsh was in fact a potential terrorist, and people would not mark him due to the threat of him carrying explosives.
Thankfully for Darsh he has made a lot of friends in life, and they were not about to allow the abuse to stand.
On December 6 his mate Greg Worthington took to Facebook to set the record straight.
Over 35,000 shares later, the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center set up #BeLikeDarsh.
As a result Twitter has gone crazy with social media users highlighting all the reasons Darsh is a perfect role model.
And then the man himself stepped in to have his say.
What an absolute legend.
