On Decembr 5th, Kamau had the opportunity to sit with TheRealNews.com to discuss the current status of the justice system in America with the outcomes of recent cases like Mike Brown and Eric Garner. Within the interview, he expressed that it’s not so much failing us because it was never meant for us (speaking about the African American community.

“We should stop saying that the American criminal system is broken because it’s not broken. It’s working the way it was intended to work.”

Watch as Kamau sits to discuss the issues plaguing citizens, especially in the African American community, what real conversation needs to be had, and what are the next steps to a truly just society.
