(GRCAM: The Digital Revolution Has Only Begun)

Life is miserable for thousands of inner city youth who are trapped in American ghettos due to urban violence. But it doesn’t have to be this way. I call upon the art community to come forth and help me spread my message to the masses through my upcoming film I refuse to allow a few black haters stand in my way this is my calling and I will be heard loud and clear. As soon as my business is up and running in Chicago I will declare war on this Willie Lynch mentality within Black America because the 400 years will be over in 2019 do the math blacks came to America in 1619. Ignorance is a choice in the information age. We will only teach those who want to learn.

Established black organizations in the city of Chicago has refuse to embrace my ideas about improving our inner cities because I think outside of the box and I am not political affiliated with the status quo. I created (GRCAM) the Grass Roots Community Activist Movement back in November 1991 on a site called Gopher because I wanted to start a new movement in Black America and throughout the African Diaspora. Also because established black organizations in Chicago refused to work with me or heed to my plan to help improve our inner cities in America. My goal was to make GRCAM a digital platform to empower Black men & Black women who are having a unique experience in America.

To add insult to injury African Americans have been protesting and marching for equality and fairness in the United States for 52 years and still to this day institutionalized racism and police brutality still happening. Since 2001 over 4,000 people in the city of Chicago alone has been killed due to urban violence. Today our elected black leaders have fail us they are all about themselves because they are being funded by the same group who created these social problems the financial elites. African Americans from the lower economic class who 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 how do it know because I experience it when I lived there.

I created GRCAM a virtual Christian socialist 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 network with other like-minded individuals who share my concern to solve black issues at the local level one community one city at a time. I also at the same time form a new black legitimate organization across the United States and around the globe for my cause Help Stop The Genocide In American Ghettos. For me Christian socialism is an authentic form of Christianity.

After 15 years of being rejected, humiliated and ignored 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 who meet the criteria that I am looking for. Our objective to connect with other like minded Progressive African Americans, African Immigrants, Afro-Brazilians and Afro-Caribbeans under one roof to display the best of black culture.

In my book I provide a 21st century plan on how my Christian organization will help eradicate urban violence in the city of Chicago and beyond while at the same time meet the social needs of the communities and families we will serve if given a chance. Since Black America has refuse to work with me I decided to make my organization membership based and private. My book is the foundation of my organization and we will carryout everything which I have written.

GRCAM is currently working on producing our first major film entitled Hood Liberator Made In Chicago. We are seeking like-minded Millennials who are Actors, Artists, Authors, Comedians, Dancers, Fashion Designers, Film Makers, Gospel Singers, Models, Musicians, Poets, and upcoming Entrepreneurs. I am seeking young Christian rap artist like Julian Samuels and non-Christian artist to participate in my upcoming film (Hood Liberator Made In Chicago) which is an urban Christian film based on my revised book (The Solution For Black America).

The length of my film will be between 10 to 20 minutes and will be set in Chicago. I will promote the film on Youtube and at film festivals, seminars and screenings until I am able to gather sponsors to fund the full movie. Sorry only U.S. citizens at this time if interested send me your email address to my Facebook inbox and I will inform you when and where our open auditions will take place. If you are selected by our panel then I will discuss compensation and incentives with you.


To strengthen single black families that want to utilize our programs and services.

To eradicate urban violence in the city of Chicago and beyond, fight against poverty,
fight against structural inequality, fight against institutionalized racism, and
fight against police brutality within the communities and cities we will serve.

To raise the bar in Black America and working collectively as did our grandparents during the Civil Rights Era, standing for righteousness, covering what the Holy Spirit is doing in our day, while lovingly confronting error and extremes in a constructive manner.

To equip men and women to serve and lead with integrity, creativity, competence and compassion in a diverse, interconnected and increasingly urbanized the community and the world.

To create economic development in urban communities by starting a new Black Wall Street which will help make our community compete in the global marketplace.

To building a strong unified global community and providing basic resources to communities and families that want to utilize our programs and services.

To expand to 10 cities throughout the MidWest and hire African Immigrants in America to assist me in expanding my organization to 10 countries in Africa and in time expand to Brazil and the Afro-Caribbean.

America is the most richest and powerful country in the world. The United States has tremendous influence around the globe promoting democracy and equal treatment of everyone except for poor black men and poor black women. A four legged dog has more protection under the current law then an unarmed black man or unarmed black woman. .Black people in America are divided based on social class, religion and political affiliation (Democratic Party/Republican Party).

As I mentioned in my revised book “The Solution For Black America” in chapter seven this tit for tat Democrat/Republican party was established during slavery times and does not represent a true democracy because the financial elites created both political parties and the electoral college as an illusion to make Americans believe they have a choice in selecting their political leaders. According to the Greek philosopher “A democracy exists whenever those, who are free and poor are in sovereign control of the government, an oligarchy is when control lies in the hands of the rich and born.”

I call upon like-minded Millennials, Progressive African Americans, African Immigrants, Afro-Brazilians, Afro-Caribbean, Non-black sympathizers, all Christians regardless of denominations, moderate Muslims and secular people who are interested in working with me first please purchase my revised book (The Solution For Black America: Reclaiming, Rebuilding, And Restoring The Urban Ghettos In America) second edition and read my story for yourself.

If you agree with my vision to improve our inner cities in America then share my book information with your family, friends, place of worship and also at your local community center this will help speed up the process for me to generate capital so that I can be in a better position financially to hire qualified people to assist me with the daily operation of my Christian business (GRCAI) the Grass Roots Community Activist Institute of Chicago.

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. I am doing my best 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 future film Hood Liberator Made In Chicago. This is my contribution back to my community, society and throughout the African Diaspora.

Proverbs 29:18 Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.
