    12 Miaka Slave

    12 years ago, I stood inside Philadelphia’s Federal Detention Center’s (FDC Philadelphia) Receiving and Discharge unit, my mind blurred to the reality in front of me. “What’s your number?!” “6-0-1-2-8-0-6-6!” I reluctantly replied to the correctional overseer as I began to kneel down on the cold concrete slab that served as a bench to get shackled and handcuffed. 6-0-1-2-8-0-6-6 is what I had become, federal property complete with an eight digit bar...SOMA ZAIDI


    Kufanya America Salama Tena?

    Katika kushinikiza yake kwa White House, Donald Trump ni kuahidi “kufanya America salama tena.” Nini hasa anamaanisha kwa kufanya America salama “again?” Anamaanisha salama kama katika siku moja kabla ya Wazungu kufika na kuanza mauaji mbali wenyeji? Hiyo inaonekana kama muda tu America alikuwa salama– angalau kwa mashirika yasiyo ya wazungu. Kutoka wakati Waafrika walikamatwa na alipanda kwenye meli ya watumwa, America haijawahi salama kwa weusi. Sina hakika kama Donald Trump anajua hii,...SOMA ZAIDI


    Marginalized: The Criminalization of a Race

    As the cycle of mass incarceration continues, prison will be an expected rite of passage into manhood for an even greater number of African American men. Cha kusikitisha, most will consider their prison experience to be a badge of honor. Ukweli kuwa habari, more than any other ethnic group in this nation, people of African descent, particularly males, have endured the somber and debilitating impacts of prison. Katika 2010, African Americans comprised nearly 50% of the incarcerated population in America while...SOMA ZAIDI


    Why I support Colin Kaepernick

    Photo Credit: Chris Carlson/Associated Press Why do I support Colin Kaepernick? I know how hard hard it is for a black man in America today. From the drug usage to the disunity and violence, I see of the effects of the psychological warfare waged on us. I see how we are turned against each other and how we encourage disunity among ourselves based on what we were taught by the very same people we believe can help us. The minute a person agrees to work with the government they destroy lives and...SOMA ZAIDI


    The Mind of My True Enemy

    #RaiseUP – Peace to the inmate nation and the REAL family members and loved ones who never left my corner. Today I’m approaching the session from a totally different angle . . . I call this angle “The Mind of My True Enemy”. Before I drop FREE JEWELS, let me say G-lookin’ to KB and the Big Homie Mass for even making a social platform like Live from Lockdown even possible. I believe in the power of dedicated minds. I greet you from the confines of USP...SOMA ZAIDI


    After all the protesting, will something finally change?

    I see the world is starting to see through the eyes of an African-American thanks to social media. But after all the protesting, will something finally change? Do more blacks or police have to die just so we can receive justice? Do this shine light on the criminal justice system? Everyone is trying to understand why blacks are targeted, why blacks are hated so much we hate each other. I can tell why. Maybe it’s the simple fact that we consider ourselves American. Sound crazy? Think about...SOMA ZAIDI


    Mr. White Privilege and the Black Masquerade

    Tunapoanza kutembea kwetu kwa muda mrefu kwa uhuru ni lazima kuwafichua wale ambao hawakuweza kuzuia safari yetu kwa kazi kama wakala provocateurs kwa nemesis yetu Mr. White Privilege. As all blacks will attest, being black is not just a skin complexion that warrants unquestioned love and loyalty. An example of this is Michelle Obama. No matter what we think of her husband’s inaction on certain issues, we all in our community admire her as a REAL black woman. Tunajua yeye anapenda watu wake na ni bado ya yake ...SOMA ZAIDI


    #DearMrPresident Investigate Corrupt Law Enforcement

    Dear President Obama, Inaeleweka kwamba uhalifu wote lazima kuletwa na haki, lakini wakati wa kutekeleza sheria inakuwa jinai kipengele haki haziwezi kuwa aliwahi, hakuna jambo matokeo ya jinai jambo / kesi.

Hivi karibuni, the Federal Bureau of...SOMA ZAIDI
