(GRCAM In Layman’s Terms)
GRCAM is a new 21st Century movement in Black America in the digital age. Our objective is to connect with other liked minded ordinary law-abiding citizens, Progressive African Americans, African Immigrants, Afro-Brazilian/Afro-Caribbean within the United States and abroad. I welcome all Christian denominations, Millennials, Non-black sympathizers, moderate Muslims and secular people who are interested in working with me and Sister Rena in turning my ideas into action.
I created (GRCAM) the Grass Roots Community Activist Movement on November 10th 1991 on a site called Gopher to help raise awareness about the genocide which is taking place within our inner cities in America in order for me to connect with other like-minded individuals who share my concern to form a legitimate coalition across the United States and around the globe for my cause Help Stop The Genocide In American Ghettos starting in Chicago.
Today GRCAM is on 300 social networks and has grown into a global movement, with thousands of people in my online social groups from around the world. My goal now is to turn GRCAM into a real Christian business (GRCAI) the Grass Roots Community Activist Institute of Chicago. The only thing which is preventing me from starting my Christian organization is the lack of manpower and the capital this is why I am on 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 available on Amazon I provide the link to my author page below.
For 26 years I have been running across small minded brothers and sisters who only complain about the white man, the government, Jews owning the media and that black people don’t own anything etc…but when I ask them to work with me in turning my virtual Christian organization into a real business within our inner cities so that we can create a new Black Wall Street they stop communicating with me or remain passive spectators. My organization will take the lead to help improve our inner cities in America and in time improve the social conditions within the African slums if given a chance. I will not start my organization until I have my management team in place. It’s not my fault that I am unable to find qualified people to join my team.
I am called by my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ to rebuild our inner cities in America and the slums in Africa similar to that of Nehemiah who was called by God to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem. Nehemiah used qualified engineers, architects and inventors to rebuild a new city. GRCAM is a Christian socialist organization. A Christian socialist is a form of socialism based on the teachings of Jesus. Many Christian socialists 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 Luke 4:18–19. 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.
African American from the lower economic class are suffering great harm from senseless violence, high unemployment, mass incarceration, police brutality, drug abuse, high illiteracy, inadequate healthcare and failing schools as a result of institutionalized racism. It’s my hope that through my story I could recruit 30 professionals within the United States who have read my story and who meet the qualifications that I am looking for which are as follows: Investors, Business Partners, Christian Entrepreneurs, Social Entrepreneurs and Philanthropist. I am also looking for legitimate Film Producers, Actors, Stage Managers, Grant Writers/Fundraisers, Technical Directors, Marketers, Accountants, Business Administrators, Social Workers, Financial Planners, Lawyers, Real Estate Brokers and Insurance Agents. After they pass the criminal background checks I will discuss compensation and incentives with them behind closed doors.
My team will assist me in creating both a Nonprofit Cooperative Organization and a For Profit Service Based Business on the same premises in order to make my organization effective and successful for years to come. GRCAI will operate under 5 separate functions within the African American community.
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
I am working on producing my future film “Hood Liberator Made In Chicago” a urban Christian film for such a time as this based on my revised book “The Solution For Black America: Reclaiming, Rebuilding, And Restoring The Urban Ghettos In America” second edition. I am in the process of taking film making classes in order to learn the ins and out of screen writing and becoming a director so that I can make my short urban Christian film. I am still looking for people who are skilled with cameras, lighting, sound, Musicians and Actors. The length of the film will be 20 minutes and the location of the film will be set in Chicago.
Once I have my film crew in place I will display the short film at film festivals, Youtube and screenings until I am able to gather sponsors to fund the full movie. If interested in auditioning for a role in the film please send me your email address to my Facebook inbox, my Google inbox, my LinkedIn inbox and or my Twitter inbox. I will give preference to those who have my purchase my revised book and who are spreading my book information on their Facebook Page or with their family, friends, places of worship and at their local community center.
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 our collective future.
The Grass Roots Community Activist Institute will be private in order for us to weed out people who don’t care about inner-city youth, their families, or the black community. Half of GRCAI will be a nonprofit cooperative, governed by an Advisory Board. GRCAI will be membership based and operate for the mutual benefit of our members. Also, any earnings we make are returned to our members in the forms of lower prices through our quality programs and services. Our members come first and we will be committed to providing trusted and understandable information. We will work towards keeping our members healthy, informed, and safe.
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. GRCAI is open to all ordinary law-abiding citizens, all racial groups, and undiscovered artist. This is my contribution back to my community, society and throughout the African Diaspora.
