An Interview With A Black Lawyer Fighting For Justice

by Zulu Ali Esq.

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
Overview
For over four centuries, the vicious cycle of systematic racism has deeply entrenched the oppression of African Americans as a necessary component of the American system. The history of racial injustice in the United States has contributed to a discriminative and painful legacy. A historic legacy that offers a complete system of constitutional protections to Caucasian suspects, and denies those very same rights to minority defendants. The narrative of racial difference has made the price of fighting for justice a costly one. As a result, those refusing to be officers of the court are constantly subject to judicial scrutiny. In order to uncover the racial disparity that pervades the U.S. criminal justice system, we sit down to have a conversation with our very own host attorney Zulu Ali. Through this special edition of Justice Watch Radio, we examine institutionalized racism, a dynamic which further exacerbates the oppression of African Americans within the judicial system. Most notably, in this discussion attorney Zulu Ali reflects on his experience from humble beginnings to becoming an award winning trial-lawyer. As an African American lawyer fighting for justice, attorney Zulu Ali identifies the distinct practices within our criminal justice system. Practices which work hand in hand with other institutions to further deepen the systematic oppression of African Americans. Furthermore, attorney Zulu Ali uncovers the prejudiced nature within the judiciary branch. He expands on the implicit judicial bias which directly influences the mass incarceration of African Americans in the United States. This intellectual conversation is equally a call for the American population to adopt a more selfless mindset. As a man of integrity devoted to his faith, Zulu Ali links the lack of unity in or communities to the broken value system in America. In sum, attorney Zulu Ali actively educates the reader on higher level social justice concepts. However, by expanding on his lived ex
