(GRCAM Fighting For Black Youth In America & Throughout The African Diaspora)

I am asking all of my Christian friends worldwide to pray for Dijon Walker, a one year old who was shot in the head last night on Chicago Southside. Urban violence is not limited to Chicago it’s in every American ghetto. Urban violence is a moral issue just like American slavery and lynching were back in the day. Our grandparents fought and died during the 60s in order for us as Black People to have a better life in America. The Civil Rights Movement was the greatest accomplishments made by black people in the United States for example, through the Civil Rights Movement achieved civil rights equal to those of whites, including equal opportunity in employment, housing, and education, as well as the right to vote, the right of equal access to public facilities, and the right to be free of racial discrimination. No social movement in the twentieth century has had such as profound effect on the legal and political institutions that the Civil Rights Movement had made.

The Civil Rights Movement sought to restore African Americans the rights of citizenship guaranteed by the Fourteenth and Fifteenth Amendments, which had been eroded by Jim Crow laws in the South. It fundamentally altered relations between the federal government and the states, as the federal government was forced many times to enforce its laws and protect the rights of African American citizens. The Civil Rights Movement prompted gains not only for African Americans but for Women, People with Disabilities, and Homosexuals.

I created (GRCAM) the Grass Roots Community Activist Movement back in November 1991 on a site called Gopher because I wanted to raise awareness about the genocide which is taking place within our inner cities in America, as well as for me to connect with other like-minded individuals who are concerned about solving black issues at the local level one community one city at a time. Our focus is to eradicate urban violence through our programs and services. To promote economic opportunities in the black community by being an advocate and a reliable source for our members. We aim to strengthen the black family while meeting the social needs of the community we will serve. We will address reduce poverty, fight against structural inequality and institutionalized racism and help end police brutality within the communities and cities we will serve.

Our ultimate goal is to reconnect with our ancestral homeland Africa. It’s my hope to connect with African Immigrants within the United States that want to work with us in expanding GRCAM to ten countries in Africa. Liberia, Ivory Coast, Ghana, Angola, Nigeria, South Africa, Kenya, Ethiopia, Tanzania and Uganda. I courage my international friends to share my book information with their family and friends who reside in Canada, Europe and the United States to purchase my revised book and read my story. This will help me speed up the process for me to recruit brave and smart African Immigrants in America to assist me in setting up 10 chapters on the African continent.

We will go through the proper channels with their government to start our (NGO) Non-government organization. We will offer private employment to our members based on our budget and our sponsorship. We will provide infrastructure for clean running water, agricultural technology to feed the people, offer solar energy to help our members with their electrical generators and most of all help improve the African economy as well as educate the people about the problems with Capitalism and show them an alternative GRCAM. In time, we will expand to Brazil and the Afro-Caribbean Islands.

After 15 years of being rejected, humiliated and ignored by established black organizations in the city of Chicago I decided to write and publish my story (The Solution For Black America: Reclaiming, Rebuilding And Restoring The Urban Ghettos In America) second edition in hopes of attracting 30 black middle class professionals and others within the United States to join my management team. I have my articles of incorporation and my bylaws typed and available for my Nonprofit Cooperative. I also have my articles of organization typed and available for my For Profit Service Based Business.

I started GRCAM in my early 20s now I am in my 40s Yet to add insult to injury still to this day I don’t have anyone on my management team. The only thing which is preventing me from starting my Christian business 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 Social Groups, my Blog Postings, my online talkshow and now through my revised book and my upcoming film (Hood Liberator Made In Chicago). This is my last attempt to try to do something positive for my racial group in America I don’t have another 27 years to waste. I laid the ground work in my revised book and my book is the foundation of my future Christian business (GRCAI) the Grass Roots Community Activist Institute of Chicago.

I am just one black man with a plan and a vision 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. I believe this act of human collaboration across an open platform is essential to the low income African American community and to our people on the African continent because our collective future is at stake.

GRCAI will be membership based and 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. In order to stay updated about my events just send me your email address or check my social media pages like my Facebook Page, my Google Plus Page, my Twitter Page, my LinkedIn Page and or my Medium Page. This is my contribution back to my community, society and throughout the African Diaspora.
