My name is Emmanuel Barbee, I am the founder and creator of the Grass Roots Community Activist Movement. I created GRCAM on November 10th 1991 on a site called Gopher in order to connect with other like-minded Black People, African Immigrants, Afro-Brazilian/Afro-Latinos and Afro-Caribbeans to discuss social issues in America and throughout the Diaspora as well as on the African continent.
I am a Black America born and raised in Chicago Illinois. I am a professional blogger, an online talkshow host of Help Stop The Genocide of American Ghettos Podcast, an upcoming Social Entrepreneur, a Film Maker in progress and a New Urban Author of the book "The Solution For Black America: Reclaiming, Rebuilding, And Restoring The Urban Ghettos In America" second edition available on Amazon. It’s available in two forms the E-Book is $6.25 cents and the Paperback for $6.25 cents plus shipping and handling.
This book is three books in one first it’s an auto-biography about my experience growing up in the inner city of Chicago. Secondly, I discuss our past, present and future situation in America. In my revised book I provide a 21st Century plan on how my Christian business (GRCAI of Chicago) the Grass Roots Community Activist Institute of Chicago will help eradicate urban violence in Chicago through Arts, Culture, Commerce, Spiritual Development and hosting African tours to 10 African nations they are as follows: South Africa, Kenya, Ethiopia, Tanzania, Uganda, Angola, Liberia, Ivory Coast, Ghana and Nigeria. The Caribbean places would consist of Brazil, the Bahamas, Barbados, Haiti, Jamaica and Trinidad.
GRCAI of Chicago will be committed to assisting with improving the African American community while having a strong connection to our chapters in Africa. We will train our black youth in such areas as Parenting, Information Technology, Blockchain Technology, Coding, Electricians, Petroleum Engineers, Landscaping, Creating Black Empowerment Films, Oil Painting and Journalism. We also plan on offering Associate Degree and Vocational Training. GRCAI of Chicago will help prioritize our goals such as securing our neighborhood and protecting our women and children. We will offer stipends for black youth who will act in our films, music videos and stage plays pending on our budget and sponsorship. We will also offer a Second Chance program to reach out to Former Gang Members, Ex-Offenders of non-violent crimes and Homeless Individuals within the community this is what my creator called me to do. GRCAI of Chicago will be a multi-purpose facility, functioning as a Nonprofit as well as a For Profit business. GRCAI of Chicago will operate under 7 separate functions under one roof. 1. Social Service component 2. Spiritual component (optional for secular people) 3. Political component 4. Entertainment component 5. Entrepreneur component 6. Health and Wellness component 7. Black Media component (New Black Voices of Media) We will practice group economics in real time by pooling our resources together in order to create and control our own Community Healthcare Center, Community Grocery Store and Community Housing this will be group economics in action. GRCAI of Chicago will help benefit Africa because we will form an alliance with African Immigrants in the United States of America starting in Chicago. In each African nation we will visit we will match Black Entrepreneurs with African Entrepreneurs, Black Artist with African Artist so that we can do international trade among our people. We also plan on setting up local chapters in each African nation we visit. Our objective is to unite middle class, working class and underclass Africans with the Diaspora and viceversa.
Our objective is to strengthen Black families and improve the African American community starting in Chicago. In the book I also promote my virtual Christian socialist organization (GRCAM) the Grass Roots Community Activist Movement. The Grass Roots Community Activist Movement is an interactive online Christian groups and Secular groups. GRCAM is about Kingdom Building, Global Black Unity, and Black Economic Empowerment in order to solve social problems within the African American Community and throughout the African Diaspora in the 21st Century. GRCAM is a virtual Christian socialist organization. For me Christian socialism is an authentic form of Christianity. A Christian socialist is a form of socialism based on the teachings of Jesus. We believe that capitalism is idolatrous and rooted in greed, social inequality, and institutionalized racism which most Christian denominations consider a mortal sin. We will focus on what we stand for: Love, Compassion, Social Justice, and Liberation Theology. Jesus told us to focus on the lease of these in society according to Matthew 25:35–40. He also commanded us to be a witness to others not just for us to read his word, but to activate social change in the world according to Matthew 28: 16–20. We will be committed to the healing ministry of Jesus by showing compassion to inner city youth and their families which will promote dignity to the people and community we will serve. We will promote an authentic form of Christianity which is for me Christian Socialism. We emphasize the importance of morals and character development for both Christians and Non-Christians. We will also focus on strengthening the black family while improving the African American community by focusing on solving black issues on a domestic front and on an international front. We promote Black Economic Empowerment. I have been paying out of pocket to secure my business title (GRCAI of Chicago) since 2010. My revised book is barely selling and items on my virtual store is also barely selling. It takes capital to start a business that’s why I wrote my book to generate capital and that’s why I created my virtual store to generate capital. I don’t sell dope I sell knowledge to give you skills to pay the bills. My film project is my last attempt to try to do something positive for my racial group in America.
Our film project (Hood Liberator Made In Chicago: The War Against Willie Lynch Begins) is a solution base docu-drama which is based on my experience growing up in the inner cities of Chicago. And the purpose why I created GRCAM in the first place. This is our Black Panther moment except it's not owned by Disney it's owned by us. We want to get this film in front of five hundred million people worldwide. We offer a 21st Century solution both domestically within the United States of America and throughout the Diaspora. GRCAM is my gift to Black Millennials, Generation Z and my group members. It's my hope that we can eventually create our own Black Film Industry, Black Hair Product Industry and Sporting Industry.
Since Black America / Black Chicago have rejected and overlooked my vision and plan for the past 31 years my Christian business will be membership based. We will separate ourselves from the enemy within the Black Boule, Urban Terrorist, Harden Criminals, Degenerates and Pedophiles. We will also declare war on this Colonized Mindset among African Immigrants in America and on the African continent. Non-black sympathizers are welcome not as groups but as individuals we’re screening everyone in order to weedout those who plan to undermine us. We will hold mandatory orientation everyone who wants to be a GRCAI member must pass our criminal background check, sign the community pledge and submit their thumb print so that we can keep tabs on what is doing what within the business. Anyone who tries to change our focus will get two warnings the third time the person or persons will be placed on our Judas list with their name, phone ID and address and they will be barred for life this is how I get down. We are raising the bar in Black America.
If Black America does not embrace my vision and plan by 2050 then black people as a collective will become a permanent underclass in America. As I mentioned on my platform a few weeks ago Daniel Penny the man who choked to death Jordan Neely on a New York subway his attorney had raised $1 Million dollars within a week. That's White Supremacy being on code. In contrast, I created a GoFundMe Page last April 2022 so that everyone on my Facebook friends list and everyone in my social groups would know exactly where the funds for our film project would go. Out of 1,679 people on my Facebook friends list only 5 people have donated to our Film Project on our GoFundMe Page then you wonder why our community remains jacked up. All I have is my Revised Book, my Virtual Store, my Online Groups, my Online talkshow and my Faith.
