    Bear Witness to America’s Massacre

    It was seven when I heard the sirens I had to get away, but my legs wouldn’t move. I was running nowhere fast. Ghafla, I was face down. 1, 2, 3 officers hard tackled, knee in my back, arms wrestled behind me. My rights were never read; was told I had none. To take another man’s life is said to be the most egregious sin, and so is the denial of justice. Head mushed down, cop car door slammed shut. “We got ’em Capt!” Mistaken identity, my guilt...SOMA ZAIDI

Sasa, looking back over my life, I can see with clear...SOMA ZAIDI


    Wapenzi: What Is Our Plan of Action?

    Dear Beloved, With love and solidarity I send this missive because I know you are confused, disillusioned and in fear at the election of Donald J. Trump as Amerikkka’s President. Thousands of you have taken to the streets in major cities to protest the election result, and although confined to this cage I hear you. I feel you. The world hears you and feels you too.

    Donald Trump: nini sasa?

    Sasa kwa kuwa Donald Trump amechaguliwa kuwa Rais wa Marekani, kila mtu ni kuuliza: nini sasa? Je, yeye kujenga ukuta? Je, yeye mzigo wote wa Mexicans kwenye treni ya mizigo kama chattel na meli yao kuvuka mpaka na kurudi? Je, yeye kupiga marufuku Waislamu? Je, yeye kumaliza kile Reagan na Clinton kuanza na kujenga magereza zaidi kwa vijana weusi? Nani anajua Trump kufanya– pengine bora kuliko wengine. Lakini ni uwezekano wa yeye kufanya nini marais wote kufanya wakati katika ofisi– make the...SOMA ZAIDI

    President-elect Donald Trump

    Donald Trump as President is going to be very interesting. Too bad our lives are ones to be played with. This nation will be even further divided than it already was. The white supremacist groups are already showing signs of aggression toward others. In order to deal with this reality the black community must stop shooting each other and build on the strength we have left. Many in this country are angry because a black man became President of a white nation and now White America wants their...SOMA ZAIDI


    Criminal Justice Reform Beyond 2016

    The holidays are approaching and still the U.S. Congress has yet to move or act on any agenda surrounding prison reform. Criminal (gereza) and social reform has become race and class-based issues that seem to be off “the radar” for most politicians who only give lip service to its importance. For many of us who are affected by Congress’ persistent inaction, times like these have become all too familiar and frustrating. The War on Drugs lives on, destroying minority...SOMA ZAIDI

Willing is not enough; we must do.” -Johan Wolfgang von Goethe “Continue to remember those in prison as if you were together with them in prison, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering.” -Hebrews 13:13 I want to take a moment to define I’ve shared a quote in a previous post by my friend and author J. Doyle what is meant by dehumanization- to divest of human qualities or personality. Utaratibu huu ...SOMA ZAIDI
