National Correspondent Shireen Qudosi speaks with Carl Jack, a former Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) board member and a Black American convert to Islam. In a candid conversation, Jack discusses his frustration with CAIR, what he perceives as their racism toward Black Muslim issues and their disregard for the legacy of African American civil rights.

He challenges “Muslim advocacy days” at state capitols as well as assumptions and protests about the “Muslim ban.”

Jack also shares why he journeyed toward Islam and the “belief versus reality” of how he was treated by the Muslim community as an African American man.

Finally, the conversation delves into the frustration of older generations of Black Americans regarding today’s discussions of racism. Jack speaks about what he thinks is triggering racism in our country, and why he feels the media is to blame above and beyond any other group.
