    A young Sikh boy in the US state of Georgia has been called a "terrorist" by a group of school children, with the video of the abuse now going viral on the Internet.

    In the video posted on Inquisitr, the bespectacled Sikh boy is seen sitting in what appears to be a school bus and is surrounded by students.
    He whispers to the camera: "The kids are being racist to me."


    A young girl sitting behind him then shouts "terrorist! terrorist!" and points her finger at the boy, who remains calm and even shouts "who cares" when the kids hurl abuses at him.

    Inquisitr reported that the video was uploaded by a user named 'Nagra Nagra' and identified the Sikh boy as Harsukh Singh.

    Singh apparently uploaded the video initially which has so far got 130,000 views, with the description,"Kids being racist to me and calling me an Afghan terrorist. Please don't act like this towards people like me. If you don't know, I'm not Muslim I'm Sikh."

    An online user described the video "disgusting" in which the young Sikh boy is "being bullied with racist chants on a school bus. "The Sikh bravely states that he doesn't care what they think of him."

    The Inquisitr reported that Singh is a student at the Chattahoochee Elementary School in Duluth, Georgia. The incident comes weeks after a Hindu temple was vandalised in Seattle. A Nazi swastika and the phrase "get out" was found spray-painted in red on the exterior of thetemple and cultural centre in Washington state in February.

    According to the Council on American-Islamic Relations, FBI hatecrimes statistics shows that anti-Muslim hatecrimes are still at about five times more common than they were before the 9/11 attacks.

    Last year, 29-year-old Sikh man Sandeep Singh was brutally injured after a Long Island man slammed his pick-up truck into him after calling him 'Osama' and that he should "go back to your country."

    Joseph Caleca was indicted by a grand jury on a nine-count indictment charging him with attempted murder as a hate crime, assault, criminal possession of a weapon and leaving the scene without reporting after hitting Singh.

    Funny to see a Kaley is one of the abusers, 300 years ago his ancestors were probably slaves on a plantation LOL

    I think most of the people abusing will most probably become early drop outs from school like majority american kids and this kid will shine!

    i think we must blame parents here , these kids are just speaking the language their ignorant parents speak in their house. They might have watched their parents go full retarded after seeing a brown guy , calling him terrorist , taliban , alqaeda and what not without even knowing who they are and they just picked it up. If anyone should be spanked here i think it should be the parents.

    I have seen many racial abusive videos and found Blacks to be the most prominent race doing it, I think they forgot that they were at one point also the victim of this and still many around the world consider them low, so they better start behaving well.

    An average american doesn't know the difference between Hindus, Sikhs,Muslims or a Buddhist.

    Apart from only the specifics they learn about in school, they dont have much General Knowledge like the South asians on many many many things.

    That doesn't matter even if they knew he was a Sikh he would still most likely be bullied because of the head wear. Anyways he seems like a strong kid and I hope this video forces the school to be more proactive in stopping this kind of behavior.

    it's stuff like this will cause someone to lash out and do a serious attack. not saying this kid will, bu

    kids will be kids. they see something different and think it's cool to do what they are doing.

    give them a decade and they'll look back and regret what they did.
