CAPTAIN AMERICA IN A TURBAN
Vishavjit Singh took to the streets of New York to challenge the way New Yorkers see Superheroes, and the ethnicity behind them. [x]
As I walked down the street, it was like dominoes. People slowed down to get my attention. Fans clustered around me. Parents egged their children next to me for a shot. I urged the kids to strike a superhero pose. In front of the Metropolitan Museum, four well-built African-American men surrounded me with big smiles, hands stretched out, fingers twirled with attitude and me sandwiched between them, striking a pose with my shield and a fist.
