I also assist people on my friends list with creating basic websites, finding college scholarships/grants; housing & legal services all for free.

We will hold a private conference through Google Meetings to discuss the best method of reaching others via social media, people from there friends list, donors & local businesses.

(GRCAI of Chicago) the Grass Roots Community Activist Institute of Chicago mission is to help eradicate urban violence in Chicago through our programs and services. Our objective is to build a bridge between the Diaspora and continental Africans through arts, culture and commerce. (GRCAI of Chicago) will be in the business of creating docu-dramas, short films, theater, photography, fine arts, music, poetry, literature, sculpture, dance and spiritual development for inner city youth. Once this virus is cleaned up we plan on launching African tours in order for us to move from behind a computer and make real connections with our Global Black Family on continent starting in South Africa.

I created (GRCAM) the Grass Roots Community Activist Movement because I got tired of all of the division among Black People. I created GRCAM in 1991 on a site called Gopher. I wanted to create an organization that focus specifically on solving black issues in America. I wanted to connect with other like-minded African Americans, Afro-Brazilians, Afro-Caribbeans, Afro-Europeans, African Immigrants and Afro-Latinos through out the Diaspora.

This is a podcast where we talk about solving Black issues/African issues using a spiritual perspective as it pertains to the great awakening of our people that has been prophesied. Our objective is to get our film project fully funded and play it by ear during COVID-19. Once this virus is cleaned up then we will shoot our film and promote our film in selected movie theaters and sell our DVDs. Together we will put GRCAM on the map and turn my vision for Black America into a reality.

In 2021 and beyond The Grass Roots Community Activist Movement will be promoting a policy of Global Black Unity, Ownership and Community Support. Our objective is to be in a place where we own everything we consume and we support one another. We’re reaching out to our group members and listeners and would like to encourage them to support our film project (Hood Liberator Made In Chicago: The War Against Willie Lynch Begins) in three ways which are as follows:

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

2. Though our nonprofit organization (GRCAI of Chicago) the Grass Roots Community Activist Institute of Chicago Paypal Page. Donation can be used as a tax right off because this is a legitimate 501(c)(3). All donations are deductible to the full extent allowed by law.

3. You can support us by purchasing my revised book on Amazon through my Author Page.

Keep in mind community support is where we have to go and please understand when you’re supporting our Youtube channel or our podcast you’re supporting an independent black network which will eventually employ Black People in our films, stage plays and in our actual business. I need African entrepreneurs especially in South Africa to come on the show and promote your businesses and ministries to the Diaspora and vice versa.

With that being said tonight’s segment is entitled (Building GRCAI OF Chicago While Pushing A Black Agenda) There’s a lot of things we’re going to touch on. The Grass Roots Community Activist Movement is about promoting Black Economic Empowerment and getting resources for our group first Black Americans. This Pan Africanism is one sided. Pan Africanism means black immigrants are coming over here then they throw us under the bus. There’s a Nigerian Immigrant by the name of Austin Chenge he is running for Governor in the state of Michigan as a Republican. What caught my attention he said that if he becomes the Governor he’s going to get rid of Black History Month because it’s divisive and it’s offensive to other groups who needs to be celebrated too. He’s a black immigrant who’s using all the anti-black talking points so that he can win brownie points from white people. Here’s a video clip of him discussing this matter you can listen to it on my Transcript on my Medium Page under Show and Prove.

My question to him is that you had to come to America to jump into politics why you didn’t run for politics in your own country? We got to have this conversation. I love black people from all over the world. Many Nigerians are on my friends list and many of them are cool with me. Some Nigerians who are coming over here are saying negative things about Black Americans. People like Austin Chenge makes it difficult to unify. It was Black Americans who fought for Africans and Caribbeans to have an opportunity to come to the United States. Joe Biden is threatening sanctions on Nigeria if they don’t get rid of their anti-gay laws that’s what Austin Chenge should be talking about instead of messing with Black American History. You don’t see Black Americans going to Nigeria talking about getting rid of something dear to your culture. The reason why Nigeria is in the way that it is is because the Financial elites from western nations continue to steal your resources. France still controls 14 West African nations including Nigeria.

I don’t want to unify with foreign coons, harden criminals, con artist, anyone whos anti-black. We have to first focus on getting our house in order. Our people created Black Wall Street applying group economics during the 1920’s. The Financial elites goal has been to convince us that we need to accept our position as a perpetual labor class and consumer class. I believe enough of us are on code to make an impact in our community. We need to stay on code with each other so that we can build our community up before we do anything with other groups. The only people that I want to unify with are other like minded black people who are about building up our community while creating an economic base. Though the Grass Roots Community Activist Institute of Chicago we’re going to bring resources and tangibles specifically for Black Americans. We’re funding all these DACA programs and Dreamers programs we’re funding non-citizens we want to redirect those resources from our tax dollars going towards funding black programs.

There are certain forces in place intentionally that are trying to keep black people from (IT) Information Technology it’s called the digital divide. The whole purpose why I am focusing on raising funds for our film project is because a lot of our people don’t like to read it’s my hope that through my film I could reach the black masses not only here in America but throughout the Diaspora and in Africa. One of classes we will focus on is coding for our youth between the ages of 18 to 35. When you go to these colleges and universities you need to take the ACT many Black Americans score between 16 to 18 on the test. Many do not qualify for these scholarships and when we do go to college often times we are struggling academically because many of us attended an underfunded failing school system which makes it hard to compete with students from well funded and advance school system. The gate keeper for tech jobs is math.

We have a Vice President who is half Indian. When her group gets in high positions they look out for their people. Over the next four years they’re promising unlimited vista’s and unlimited citizenship to Indian Immigrants. What we need to do now is get my film fully funded and made so that the proceeds from the film will put me in a better position financially to purchase office equipment, property in Chicago and in Africa, hire qualified black middle class professionals in tech who can teach our students within a 2 year period. You would gain a certification in IT we will give our students hands on experience along with how to write up their resume. You can get your certification from any school that offers IT and pay ten thousand dollars we will charge a few hundred dollars.

We’re being left behind because we lack tech skills from our public school system. I see a need in our community and through my Christian business we are going to meet that need head on. I am here to try to help black people land good paying tech jobs. The Bible says despise not humble beginnings Zechariah 4:10 (NLT) New Living Translation. The Bible also states that A good man leaveth an inheritance to his children’s children: and the wealth of the sinner is laid up for the just. Proverbs 13:22

As the knowledge gets out there more people will start to join us. Indians have companies abroad then they come over here to expand their businesses this is what I am trying to do with our racial group. I’m trying to build a system that our group can benefit from. I believe that there will be a lot of suffering is going to happen because we’re going to be ignored Hispanics are going to leap over us more resources will go towards their group 11 million illegal immigrants are now grant citizenship thanks to black voters. That’s why it’s important that we support this platform.

The Grass Roots Community Activist Movement is pushing a Black Agenda. We are demanding reparations across the board. Not just for slavery but also for Convict leasing, Jim Crow and systemic racism.

1.The agenda must address Black Americans specifically the Descendants of American Slaves.

2.Black society main priority is Economic Empowerment.

3.The dismantling of systemic white supremacy

4.Police violence or State Violence is a human rights violation and must be punished.

5.Schools can no longer be weaponized against black children.

6.Remove symbols of institutionalized racism on public grounds.

7. Mandatory public and private contracts reserved for black businesses.

I made a promise to myself when I created GRCAM 29 years ago I said I’m gonna find like minded Black People, African People and Afro-Caribbean People to work with me in turning and building my idea and when I come up everyone who has been working with me will also come up. I created GRCAM to give you all the benefits of the last two in a half decades of my life experience and I’ve dedicated it to helping my people. If you work with me you’ll have a pathway to partnership. GRCAM don’t just focus on the pie in the sky we focus on solving black issues through discussion and action. I am not reaching out to the financial elites because they are the ones who have caused all of these social problems in the first place I am reaching out to the soil the black masses. Mark my words once I start making money everyone will come out of the woods and play like they want to be part of this movement. This is not business as usual this is personal we will raise the bar in Black America, Africa and the Caribbean/Brazil. My revised book is the foundation of my Christian business.

My message to our African brothers and sisters. Africa is the richest continent on earth, and yet it is home to the poorest people in the world. The question is why? I believe because of corruption and foreign powers from the colonial era who are orchestrating their agenda from behind the scene. Jesus/Yeshua has called me to connect with other liked minded Blacks and Africans to build a new system which will give Black Women and Black Men equal status through education and in business. GRCAI of Africa will help build a bridge between the Diaspora and Continental Africans. We will teach our members how to mobilize and work together for the common good of Africa which is to rid ourselves from being dependent on western nations.

Our objective in Africa is to create a genuinely sovereign and self-sufficient Africa for both Continental Africans and the Diaspora can rightfully benefit from. Our programs are focused on rebuilding Africa to secure our future. The talent and the technology to rebuild Africa is here; we need Continental Africans and the Diaspora to unite and help Africa experience her true potential. If we lose the continent we lose everything this is our last chance to get it right for the sake of our children.

The Grass Roots Community Activist Institute of Africa is going to play an intricate role in ushering in an African Renaissance in which the Diaspora and Continental Africans are going to pool our resources together in hopes of returning Africa back to her Golden Age. The time is now to sow seeds of hope, prosperity, peace, and sovereignty and plant them, so in the future, we will reap a mighty harvest for Africa and the Diaspora to prosper from.

Please partner with us in making this objective a reality and creating an African paradise. Africa will controls its destiny and resources and does not have to rely on foreign exploiters who do not serve the best interest of African people. It’s not my burden alone but rather a shared burden for I am just one black man with a vision and a plan, it takes a team to make a dream work. GRCAM is a global community of thinkers and builders I need your help to move GRCAM from behind a computer into our urban communities that need our talent and skills. The Grass Roots Community Activist Institute will be membership based. Everyone will be screen and must attend our mandatory orientation and sign the community pledge no exceptions. No harden criminals, No active gang members, No urban terrorist, No pedofiles, and no half steppers allowed in my organization this is how I get down. This is my contribution back to my community, society and throughout the African Diaspora.

For 17 years I’ve been promoting my vision/plan to Black America on Facebook. The only thing which is preventing me from turning my virtual Christian socialist organization (GRCAM) into a real Christian Business (GRCAI of Chicago) the Grass Roots Community Activist Institute of Chicago is the lack of manpower and the capital this is why I turned to social media to get my message out to the public through my Youtube videos, my Virtual Store, my Social Groups, my Blog Postings, my online talkshow, my revised book and now through my future urban Christian film (Hood Liberator Made In Chicago: The War Against Willie Lynch Begins). This is my last attempt to try to do something positive for my racial group in America.
