(GRCAM Seeking Christians To Help Move My Vision Forward To Rebuild Our Inner Cities Starting In Chicago)

Truth be told it should not take anyone 26 years to find qualified people to begin rebuilding Black Wall Street yet this is what I am going through. Many black families are leaving Chicago due to high murder rate in the low income black community. The fact remains it does not matter which city you relocate to in every ghetto in America you will see the same problems underfunded schools, high unemployment, harden criminals, drugs and extreme poverty.

I have been running across small minded brothers and sisters in person and online 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 to create a new Black Wall Street they stop communicating with me or remain passive spectators on my friends list. It’s not my fault that I am unable to find qualified people in my city to join my management team. My goal is to connect with other like minded people so that together we can strategically approach and successfully accomplish our goal for the community we care about.

This is why I wrote my story (The Solution For Black America) in hopes of attracting 30 black middle class professionals or others within the United States who have read my story and who meet the criteria 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. 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.

Since established black organizations in my city have refuse to work with me to improve our inner cities in the Chicagoland area I have decided to make my future business membership based and private. None of my members will never have to experience un-necessary humiliation just for trying to do something positive in the black community. Furthermore, we will not be under the Red, Black, and Green flag we will create a new flag and separate ourselves from harden criminals within the black community.

Our focus is on meeting the social needs of the community we will serve as well as work directly with single black families that want to utilize our programs and services. I call upon all Christian denominations, Millennials, Non-black sympathizers, moderate Muslims and secular people who are on my friends list and in my social groups to please share my book information with your family, friends, place of worship and at your local community center.

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 “The Solution For Black America: Reclaiming, Rebuilding, And Restoring The Urban Ghettos In America” second edition available on Amazon I provide the link below. I am also taking classes to learn the ins and outs of becoming a film director and a producer so that I can turn my book into a short film entitled “Hood Liberator Made In Chicago.”

I created (GRCAM) the Grass Roots Community Activist Movement back in November 1991 on a site called Gopher. I created this virtual organization in order to help 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 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 the city of Chicago.

GRCAM is a virtual 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 show an authentic form of Christianity by being 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.

My goal now is to turn GRCAM into a real Christian business (GRCAI) the Grass Roots Community Activist Institute of Chicago. 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

The Grass Roots Community Activist Institute of Chicago will take the lead in promoting the best in black culture and preserving the black family while improving the social conditions in the black community for future generations. I believe we have a large pool of talent artist and entrepreneurs right here in the Midwest. A community of writers, directors, cinematographers, and storytellers that have the genius to shoot, execute and develop some of the best content in America has yet to see.

We will Offer:

Office Renal Space

GRCAI will provides its members shared workspace, personal desk, or a private office, all within a collaborative environment. This includes access to conference rooms, meeting spaces, a communal kitchen, and more.

Community Events

GRCAI will provide networking events to provide our members with opportunities to connect and engage with other like-minded professionals. We will hold workshops led by industry professionals.

Education & Development

GRCAI will help build up our community through our workshops/seminars, guest speakers, and more. We will develop programs that are designed exclusively for our members.

As GRCAI member, discounts will be available for vendors and companies throughout Chicago this includes discounted rental rates for Cinespace stages, equipment rentals, screening rooms, and more.
I am seeking dedicated qualified people to assist me in developing quality programs and services in education, community resources, office space rentals for our members, private employment to our filmmakers, artists and entrepreneurs. GRCAI will be in the community to help our members achieve their dreams, professional goals, and everything in between.

I want to make Chicago a model before we expand to 10 other cities throughout the Midwest. My vision goes beyond Black America. I desire to reconnect with my ancestral homeland Africa. I plan on hiring brave and smart African Immigrants in America to assist me in setting up 10 chapters on the African continent. Those of you who live in Liberia, Ivory Coast, Ghana, Angola, Nigeria, South Africa, Kenya, Ethiopia, Tanzania and Uganda.

We will go through the proper channels with their government to start our (NGO) Non-government organization. We will offer private employment to our clients and members based on our budget and our sponsorship. We will provide infrastructure for clean running water, agricultural technology to feed the people, 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 Caribbean Islands.

GRCAI will serve primarily low-income African American families but also encourage the professional black middle-class families, Progressive African Americans, African Immigrants, Afro-Brazilian/Afro-Caribbean Immigrants within the United States and throughout the African Diaspora.

I am just one black man with a plan and a vision it takes a team to make a dream work. 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 fake blacks and others 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 operated 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.
