    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


    King of Hearts

    Chini ya kufuli na ufunguo wanaofugwa katika saruji, mbali na dunia ambapo hakuna macho unaweza kuona, chini ya ulinzi wa kutumia silaha milango na madirisha na baa chuma, hapa lipo Mfalme wa Hearts – maneno ni wembe mkali hotuba yake lazima kamwe kuruhusiwa kuanza akiwa amefungwa, kwa mikono na miguu, yeye lazima kubaki kufungiwa kwa ngome kuua sauti ya mfalme na tutaweza kamwe haja ya kuogopa hasira; silence him in an above ground grave, wapotofu na burudika watu kuteseka maumivu kimya miseducated wanajua wao ...SOMA ZAIDI


    My Child, My Child, I’d Really Like to Know

    Faragha confinement: When Will it be Unconstitutional?

    The road leading to United States Penitentiary Lewisburg. I did seven months in the Special Management Unit (SMU) in United States Penitentiary Lewisburg before finding out I did not qualify. My custody level is 10. It takes a custody level of 23 to be in a United States Penitentiary. Moreover I have four 300 Series shots [write-ups], which are the equivalent of a speeding ticket in the free world. 4 shots in fifteen years in two of the most violent United States Penitentiaries, and I am...SOMA ZAIDI


    Faragha confinement: Released from Darkness

    The road leading to United States Penitentiary Lewisburg. They say “Don’t nothing move but the money”. That’s a fact! However in these circumstances I find myself on the move. Another twenty-months stint in the belly of the Big House, Maalum Management Unit katika USP Lewisburg, has ended. By the time you all read this I will have been released from the darkness of solitary confinement and left to fend for myself in the wild (general population). A plane trip here. A...SOMA ZAIDI


    Flagrant Foul on All Fakes #ISeeYou

    Not too long ago it had been brought to my attention that the streets were in dire need of a “zero-tolerance” type conversation. Hoping it would possibly bring a few back to the essence and away from the Frank Ocean type behavior. With my ear to the pavement, I’m hearing it’s entirely too much faking taking place. Pretend thugs, Grammy Award winning gang-bangers and simply put scared n!**as with mean mugs. No disrespect to the real ones! Vizuri, kama unaweza kuona mtu ...SOMA ZAIDI


    Have We Forgotten About Baltimore?

    Have we forgotten about Baltimore already? Now that the uncivil disobedience has vanished, so have the news networks and journalists. Now that an assessment of the damage is complete and it has been discovered that the lot of devastation has fallen on the backs of Baltimore’s already poor residents, there is no news to be told. Who cares for urban America’s downtrodden citizens immersed in poverty anticipating their demise as a consequence of hunger, homelessness or over-aggressive...SOMA ZAIDI

    Poem: Dreams

    Growing up I had dreams of doing it big. I wanted the fast cars, beautiful women, major bucks, yet I was still a kid. You get what you give, so I planted seeds knowing what I reap would be sweet. But once I made my dreams come true, I realized there’s no real love in the streets. There’s nothing but problems, and I’d die first before I let anything get out of line. What I wanted was something to claim, like a neighborhood that’s not even mine. My dreams as a kid, kosa ...SOMA ZAIDI
