Welcome Family to Help Stop The Genocide In American Ghettos Podcast I am your host Emmanuel Barbee. Thank you for tuning in to our global network. Do me a favor hit that thumbs up button, subscribe to our Youtube channel and please share this video podcast with your friends. We ask that you do this because we want others to know we’re here. This video-podcast is available in three forms: Audio, Video and as a Written text in order for us to reach our audience.

I cite all of my sources on my Medium transcript under show and prove. I encourage my listeners to click on the link to my current Medium Transcript so that you can read my sources in real time and respond when we open up the discussion for Q & A.
We’re dedicated to discussing controversial issues such as the genocide which is taking place among our youth in our inner cities across the United States. We can’t sugar coated genocide. Although I have little to no support from people in my city I refuse to be ignored.

I am trying to build something productive for the black community on a local, nation and international level. (GRCAI of Chicago) the Grass Roots Community Activist Institute of Chicago will meet the need of the community and provide quality programs and services to strengthen the black family while improving the black community all under one roof. We’re trying to build a network on the grassroots level.

But I lack the capital and manpower to turn my vision and plan into a reality this is why I wrote my revised book and created our virtual store in order to raise funds for our film project. The proceeds from the film will help put me in a better position financially so that I can hire black middle class professionals, buy office equipment and purchase property in Chicago, Africa and the Caribbean.

On this podcast, we will promote our films, our business, current news reports, and guest contributors during our virtual conferences. Our goal is to grow our audience and reconnect the Diaspora with the Global African Family.

Purpose: To educate Black People/African People and Others who are serious about solving Black issues in America, solving African issues on the continent and throughout the Diaspora. As well as to raise funds for our film project (Hood Liberator Made In Chicago: The War Against Willie Lynch Begins).

I use this platform to interact with everyone on my Friends List and everyone in my Social Groups by giving Black Business Owners free air time to promote their products and services, I give people in the Faith community an opportunity to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ and ordinary law abiding citizens an opportunity to share their special talents/skills to my listeners from around the globe.

After the show I offer my guest speakers an incentive by teaching them how to create their own podcast and Youtube channel to help them earn extra revenue during COVID-19. I also assist people on my friends list with creating basic websites, finding college scholarships/grants; housing & legal services all for free.

Right now we’re trying to turn (GRCAM into GRCAI of Chicago) This will be a multi purpose facility in the Black Community beginning on the Westside of Chicago. We will cover Austin, Garfield Park and North Lawndale. In time we will expand to the Southside of Chicago. We will offer quality programs and services which will strengthen the black family while improving the black community in order to raise our children in a safer environment. GRCAI of Chicago will operate under 7 separate functions which are as follows:

1. A Social Service component
2. A Spiritual component (optional for secular people)
3. A Political component
4. An Entertainment component
5. An Entrepreneur component
6. A Black Media component
7. A Health and Wellness component

It’s my hope that the Grass Roots Community Activist Institute of Chicago will become a Hub throughout the Mid-west for emerging black artists and black entrepreneurs. We also plan on hosting African tours to reconnect the Diaspora with Continental Africans in 10 African nations and hopefully setup chapters in each country we visit they are as follows: Liberia, Ivory Coast, Ghana, Angola, Nigeria, South Africa, Kenya, Ethiopia, Tanzania and Uganda. We will also launch Caribbean tours from the Bahamas, Barbados, Haiti, Jamaica and Trinidad as well as Brazil.

Our goal is to raise Five Hundred Thousand dollars so that I can can be in a better position financially to hire professional Black Production Company or an African Production Company with quality actors. Without support from the Black Grass Roots and the Global African family I am unable to do my job.

I am calling on all of my Christian group members in (Light OF The World Inspirational Group & Christian Christian Spoken Word Network) to pray that God would connect me with people who have the means to support our film project. Pray that my revised book would get on the best sellers list. Pray that the spirit of God would allow our film project to get fully funded and made in Jesus/Yeshua name. I am encouraging all of my group members to do what you can to help us reach our goal so that we can move from behind a computer starting with getting our story on the big screen and getting our Christian business up and running in Chicago. Please consider supporting our film project in three ways they are as follows:

1. Though our virtual store. We provide merchandise such as COVID Facemask, Coffee Mugs, Posters, Handbag and T-shirts. All proceeds will go towards our film project.

2. Though our Paypal Page. (GRCAI of Chicago) the Grass Roots Community Activist Institute of Chicago is a faith base, community advocacy organization.

Today topics for discussion are as follows:

(African Immigrants Wake Up Call In Ukraine, What Have We Learned From Ukraine?)

Our First topic — African Immigrants Wake Up Call In Ukraine?

I touch on this topic last week now we’re going to focus on the root problem. From my understanding President Vladimir Putin has hypersonic missiles and nuclear bombs. It was (NATO) North Atlantic Treaty Organization which set Putin off. NATO said they would never expand towards the border of Russia but they did and now here we are. For me this is the Cuban missile crisis 2.0

The war in Ukraine is not just affecting Ukrainians and Russians there are a lot of foreign nationals who are in Ukraine many of them are African students. Our African brothers and sisters are finding out the hard way that the only thing colder than the weather is racism. These Europeans are at war with each other and yet they’re going out of their way to deny Africans a safe passage out of that region by enforcing a white first policy. Every other race understand that their group comes first except for black people.

I have been reaching out to black people on Facebook for 18 years about working with me to build our own institutions and businesses this is why it’s taken me so dog on long because of the lack of support from our own people. This is not just limited to African people but this is a global problem for black people across the board. We get caught up in this individualistic mindset but when things get real we come back to our senses.

When it was time for people to evacuate from Ukraine Ukrainians showed African students from Nigeria and South Africa their true colors. The Ukrainian government had a white first policy only Ukrainian women and children were allowed to get on the trains. Africans were not allowed to cross the Poland border. African students some with children were instructed to walk to neighboring countries like Hungary or Romania. I have the videos to prove it. They are facing collective threats but they refuse to regard themselves as anything other than individual nationals. And within these nations they view themselves as tribes. The European Union has come against Putin as a group. They didn’t fracture themselves into individuals countries or separate ethic groups. Africans in Ukraine are refugees abandoned by their government and hated by these Ukrainians who are pointing guns at them while shoving them off of trains in the middle of a war.

If the last 500 years of white supremacy, imperialism, invasion and enslavement followed by colonialism and racial oppression hasn’t taught Africans that racism not nationalism is the problem then I don’t know what will. This is all of our problem as black people. Many Black Americans don’t have a passport to leave the United States of America. If what’s going on in Ukraine happened over here we would be in the same situation.

It’s about that time to have this GRCAM conversation. The Grass Roots Community Activist Movement is using a 21st century approach to solving Black issues, African issues, Caribbean issues and Brazilian issues. I’m just one black man with a vision and a plan it takes a team to make a dream work. Pan Africanism just only practice in a few places in Africa. Dr. Kwame Nkrumah and now the president of Sierra Leone is offering people of the Diaspora who can trace their roots back to Sierra Leone through their DNA test can receive immediate citizenship that’s a good thing because we are catching hell in America by Rogue Cops and Urban Terrorist.

My advise to my African brothers and sisters who are leaving Africa for a better life please connect with me through my Facebook African group called (GRCAI of Africa) as soon as I am able to get our film project fully funded and made then I will begin launching our African tours. We will bring the best of the Diaspora people like Architects, Engineers, Electricians and people with masonry skills to your country so that we can have smart boots on the ground to help build up Africa’s infrastructure (buildings, roads, bridges, power supplies) in exchange for our talent and skills we want citizenship. We must have a we’re gonna fix Africa or die trying mentality. This is my African vision. If you are serious about building up your countries then connect with me on Facebook send me a friend request along with your email address so that we can begin networking. In contrast, our satellite communities within the inner cities of Chicago we will launch international trade with African entrepreneurs and Black entrepreneurs in order to improve our black communities in America starting in Chicago.

Look at how the Biden Administration treated the Haitians went they crossed the American border verses how they treat Illegal Latino Immigrants who cross the American border. Black People are looked upon as other groups. The Biden Administration immediately deported the Haitians back to Haiti. Haiti needs to rebuild Haiti we plan on coming to Haiti and other Afro Caribbean islands once we’re established in Africa. Look at videos of how Africans were treated in China during the pandemic. The majority of these other groups have proven time and time again that they don’t really care about us like that. When you are in someone else’s country they’re not going to prioritize you like they do with their own. We have to have a black first mentality and practice group economics among ourselves. God has called me to build and that’s what I am trying to do. In contrast, Zanzibar has allowed 1000 Ukrainians to stay in hotels for free while Africans are being discriminated in Ukraine. Don’t take my word for it just go to my Medium transcript and scroll down to Show and Prove to watch the video. Leave a public comment on my Facebook Page and on my Youtube channel. Most of all please share this podcast with your friends this will help get the ball rolling thanks.

Our Second topic — What Have We Learned From Ukraine? It broke my heart to see an African woman pushed off a train with her baby left out in the cold. Lord knows I want to move GRCAM from the sidelines into the mainstream of Black America. I don’t like to see my people suffer. Before this situation many African students thought that racism only exist in America. Many of them bought into the propaganda by the mainstream media that Black Americans are lazy and have criminal tenancy. I know I’m not the most likable person but listen to what I’m saying to you which is the truth. We live in a world where people don’t want to hear the truth I’ve been speaking the truth for 30 years now this is why I have to make this film in order to reach the black masses.

We need to focus on turning Africa into modern Africa with smart cities just like the Asians. Smart cities offer smart technology solutions, aid in problem solving, and amplify city resources for the betterment of cities, communities, and their citizens. They provide relevant news covering future ready technologies, impact on resident life, smart buildings, networks, energy, mobility, governance, and more.
Black Americans would help with the modernization of Africa in the area of Agricultural Technology which will help feed African people, Information Technology such as coding and somewhat Industrialization on a small scale.

We shouldn’t be in major American cities worried about urban terrorist killing our people in Chicago, Compton, Newark and Brooklyn. GRCAI of Chicago aim at turning that around if given a chance this is why I am reaching out to my Global African Family. Black Americans will jump on board once they see this organization gain traction in Africa and in the Caribbean. Black Americans really don’t understand that the financial elites have never abolished slavery this is why we’re not getting any resources. When we want justice we cry and complain to the same group of people who have enslaved our ancestors. They’re not going to help us 53 years of marching and protesting should prove that. As I mentioned in my revised book we as Black Americans must form an alliance with African nations.

What’s written in the 13th Amendment is a human rights violation which is an international crime. This Russia Ukraine conflict is about broken agreements and trying to get on Russia borders. There is also another element to this which is cultural values. Russia refuse to accept homosexuality and feminism. This is the same agenda the financial elites are pushing on African nations. For example, in Ghana, Nigeria, Kenya and South Africa. If African nations don’t accept the LGBT agenda they’re going to without foreign aide. There’s a battle between good and evil. If you want to control people the first thing you have to do is destroy the nuclear family. I discuss this in my revised book how the financial elites destroyed the black family they made the state government replace black fathers.
