The turban does not just sit on the head, it caresses the skull .... But the people who wear turbans in the United States are Sikhs, members of the world's fifth ... White is thought by some Muslims to be the holiest turban color, based on legends ... http://www.theharvardwriters.com/
You may be seeing another religious sect called Sikh rather than muslims. They are a religion in their own right begun in India and have ties to hinduism. They are the most common public wearers of turbans as it is a strict part of their religion. sort of like the orthodox jews and their yarmulke caps.

Well in islam there is no a-must-wear-dress...the ones you see are probably the Shia...they are extrem and they think what they do is right... may Allah guide them to the right path. It's not compulsory in Islam to wear a turban...Sunni men don't wear it... May Allah(God) guide you to the right path :) Have a nice day :)
