    Samuel Karim: Who I Am

    20 年監禁- Samuel Karim of Chicago, Illinois Digging deep in the complex soil that is me, Samuel Karim, understanding why I am who I am– that is my legacy. I was born during the 1970s into a Muslim home with its own complexities. My father was a minister of the Nation of Islam. I was born in Chicago. I have lived in Saint Louis, Fort Worth, 洛杉磯, and Gary, Indiana. I have attended around nineteen different schools. I really never had any sort of foundation except...閱讀更多


    Time to Wake Up

    It’s time to wake up! Along time ago I had to learn to accept that just as not all characters are the same, not all minds are alike. Therefore because a lesson is capable of being taught by one does not dictate that it can easily be learned by another. Certain things can be understood by certain people, but most things are likely to be misunderstood by most people. 看, I’m no athlete, actor, 政治家, or any other type public figure, so I don’t have to be politically...閱讀更多



    願上帝保佑你到你的心臟的慾望深處,給你快樂, 安居樂業整個一天. I greet you in peace and love eternal. I want you to understand me and my position as I understand you and yours. 這一點很重要,你知道,我永遠不會把你視為理所當然或虐待你. 您的信任是不是我錯放. 我不是那種人的. 我在一個關係深信,其中的征程導致建立一個誠實的, sincere...閱讀更多


    邊緣化: The Criminalization of a Race

    由於大規模監禁的循環下去, prison will be an expected rite of passage into manhood for an even greater number of African American men. 可悲的是, 大多數人會認為他們的經驗,監獄是一個榮譽徽章. 說實話, 超過這個國家的任何其他族群, 非洲裔人, 尤其是男性, 已經忍受監獄的憂鬱和衰弱的影響. 在 2010, 非裔美國人幾乎包括 50% of the incarcerated population in America while...閱讀更多


    Amerikkka’s Hitler: Stop Donald Trump

    As we strive for liberation, and acknowledge the gains we have made, for our self preservation one truth must be spoken plain . . . Donald Trump must be stopped! By any and all means! He is the epitome of the white nationalist enemy. The same white supremacy that birthed Hitler’s Nazi Germany. 2016 is not just another bourgeoisie presidential election. 不, this election is a fight for the soul of Black Amerika. B.L.A.C.K. 人, that is Black, Latinos, 亞洲人/阿拉伯人 (progressive)...閱讀更多


    Words of Encouragement for My African Queens and Daughters

    Painting by Live from Lockdown contributor Kenneth Key, incarcerated at Stateville Correctional Center (伊利諾伊州懲教署). I want to talk to my young queens, my sisters, my daughters, who have been scarred by past relationships. Every day I think of you and just want to convey some words of encouragement. It’s my prayer that my words will ignite some soul traveling and increase your belief in self. A belief that many of you have lost. I am aware that when you settle for...閱讀更多


    Stay the Course and Fight!

    We must stay the course and not allow the challenges that come our way to impede our forward progress. 代替, we must view our challenges as blessings and opportunities to grow. No matter what we are striving for in our personal lives, if we want it, we must fight for it. When we don’t struggle for the things we want, we will inevitably experience fear that we will not achieve what we want or a sense of guilt when opportunity passes us by. Even when we may have put forth some effort, we...閱讀更多


    Building Our Communities

    How are we supposed to feel a part of this country when the powers that be just do what they want to our people? We need money for everything, but the sad reality is that we need money to keep our families together. Without money we are considered dead. But when we get money, we just buy materialistic shit to show our worth. In reality, we could have all the materialistic shit out there and front like we got it, but our families will be fucked up. Parents are acting like their kids don’t...閱讀更多


    饒恕: An Apology to All Women

    “If anyone will take these two words to heart and use them for her own guidance, she will be almost without sin and will lead a very powerful life. These two words are bear and for bear.” -Epicetus I bring a message of apology for all the pain we men have caused you, for abandoning you to a world that has no idea the magnitude of your greatness. I apologize that we have termed you our baby’s mama, instead of giving you the title you deserve, that of Queen. I know we men have...閱讀更多


    The Evolution of Overseer to Police Officer (部分 2)

    閱讀監督者對警官的演變 (部分 1). Once again the modern day Overseers have proven to the people of African descent that no matter how much we peacefully protest, our lives truly DO NOT MATTER! As I watched that horrific video of Philando Castile slaughtered in the backseat of a car in front of his fiancee and four year old daughter and left to bleed-out like a cattle, I almost shed tears! 憤怒的眼淚, 挫折, humiliation, helplessness, and familiarity. It was...閱讀更多
