Activism: Real Justice PAC’s Grassroots Effort To Reboot The U.S. Justice System

Mass incarceration… mass victimization inflicted on us by unfair, overreaching law enforcement and an unjust judiciary. You KNOW the story. You (and/or someone you love) has LIVED the story. You’ve cried, as have we; and cried out, “ENOUGH.” But then what? Then ACTION, that’s what!

Real Justice PAC (Political ACTION Committee) is a grassroots political team determined to reimagine and completely overhaul America’s justice system. How? Glad you asked. Real Justice PAC’s Shaun King hit the inbox with much much-needed info, including an ACTION plan.

Our nation has 2,400 elected prosecutors. Not thousands, but millions and millions of cases come through 2,400 officers every single year. And it is these elected prosecutors who decide not just whether or not violent or corrupt cops are prosecuted, but these prosecutors decide how seriously to take those cases and how many staff members to put on them.

These prosecutors are 95% white, 81% male, and only 1% of them are women of color. They are also, as you can imagine, overwhelmingly conservative. Hundreds of them are effectively serving what amounts to unofficial lifetime appointments because they basically run unopposed term after term. Some of these prosecutors have been in office for over 30 years.

And they wouldn’t know a serious challenge if it smacked them in the face.

That’s where we come in.

No position in all of politics is more overdue for a complete reboot than that of America’s 2,400 District Attorneys. It’s ripe for innovation.

What We’re Demanding from District Attorneys:

1. Ensure that everyone is treated equally under the law
2. End the War on Drugs.
3. Promote Transparency and Accountability.
4. Promote Policies that Aid Undocumented Communities.
5. Make Punishment Fair.

Iranian-American Hoda Katebi May Not Be ‘American Enough’ For Some (Video)

Wowwww. You know how when you were a kid, your parents taught you what to say aloud and what NOT to say? Even if it is what you are thinking?

An Iranian-American woman was told she didn’t “sound like an American” on live TV.
– AJ+

NO! We cannot continue to allow people call our people’s, Americans’, citizenship… loyalty… whatever… into question because they do not think it lines up with what they think Americans should think, look like, sound like, etc.

She is Iranian-American. Ethnic heritage of Iran; citizen of the United States. End of debate. Unless you want to be ignorant about it and believe that only some American citizens are ‘real Americans.’

That is ‘Murica, folks. That is NOT America. America is FREE. America is TOUGH. America, if we are to believe it actually is the ‘beacon on the hill’ we proclaim it to be… MUST be better than ‘Murica.

Miguel – “Now” (Video)

It’s high time we talk about it: Is THIS the look of freedom? NO!

This is NOT ‘detention’ it is IMPRISONMENT; modern day slave-camping. Immigrants to inmates. And you-know-who wants to ‘build’ a wall?? Seems like the ‘walls’ that are already in place do way too much.

And Miguel is using his platform to shine light on this shame “Now.”

Anyone finding a way to hate on Miguel… wow. That’d be amazing and saddening at the same damn time. Dude do nothing but dopeness. This is a different look, but right in line with his vibe as an artist, ya know. Check this latest out “Now.” “War & Leisure” is out now.
