Sikh Signs For Package, UPS Driver Enters His Name As "TERRORIST"

A UPS driver entered a Sikh man’s name as TERRORIST on its online package-tracking database. The man’s family discovered the epithet when they searched for a package UPS failed to deliver.

UPS is looking into the incident, and the package entry has since been changed to the man’s last name. We’ll take this moment to remind any confused readers that:

  • Sikhs, who customarily wear turbans to cover their uncut hair, are not the same as Muslims, and
  • Not all Muslims (very few, in fact) are terrorists

We’ll also point out that this whole situation could have been avoided if UPS had actually delivered the second package.
