(GRCAM Vision For Black America & Africa In The 21st century)

On November 10th 2018, will mark 27 years that I have been sharing my vision to Black America and others online and in real life. I will host my event live on Facebook from 7PM to 12AM Central Time. For those who don’t know me please read this blog post first before you participate in order to save time for me to have to explain about my organization. In order to speak with me directly you would have to connect with me through Facebook messenger as a voice call.

I created (GRCAM) the Grass Roots Community Activist Movement back in November 1991 on a site called Gopher because I was dissatisfied with all of the division taking place among black people I wanted to start a new movement in Black America and throughout the African Diaspora in order to connect with other like minded Progressive African Americans, African Immigrants, Afro-Brazilians, Afro-Caribbean. As well as Non-black sympathizers, all Christians regardless of denominations, moderate Muslims and secular people who are interested in solving black issues starting in the city of Chicago.

Another reason why I created GRCAM was 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.

Finally, I created GRCAM 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.

Since 2001 over 4,000 people in the city of Chicago alone has been killed due to urban violence. 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. Today our elected black leaders and career politicians have fail us they are all about themselves because they have a 501(c)(3) tax exempt status provided 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.

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 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. 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. Once I have my management team in place then I will start my Christian business (GRCAI) the Grass Roots Community Activist Institute of Chicago.

Under the Nonprofit Cooperative: GRCAI will be 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.

Under the For Profit Service Based Business: we will offer state-of-the-art recreational center that will offer bowling, high ropes adventure courses, captivating game rooms featuring the latest video and amusement, stylish billiards, energetic dance rooms and high-quality restaurants, various businesses, onsite childcare and an onsite music recording studio for our students making documentary films and stage plays. In addition we will host family fun activities including combination deals, birthday parties, weddings and corporate parties/events.

To add insult to injury to this day I still don’t have anyone on my management team. 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 upcoming film (Hood Liberator Made In Chicago). This will be my last attempt to try to do something positive for my racial group.

GRCAM is a Christian socialist organization. For me Christian socialism is an authentic form of Christianity. 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. We will promote an authentic form of Christianity which is Christian Socialism. We will emphasize the importance of morals and character development for both Christians and Non-Christians. We will also focus on strengthening the black family and focus on solving black issues by promoting a black economic agenda.

My book is an auto-biography about my experience growing up in the inner city of Chicago. In the 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 that want to utilize our programs and services. My book is the foundation of my business. 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 Mission to eradicate urban violence in the city of Chicago, reduce poverty, fight against structural inequality and institutionalized racism and help end police brutality within the communities and cities we will serve.
To promote economic opportunities in the black community by being an advocate and resource for our members.

The Vision

*Increase Exposure: We will sponsor local events such as our stage plays to highlight our members businesses during our networking events.

*Drive tourism to the community: Highlight our cause Help Stop The Genocide In American Ghettos. This creates a positive public image that gains respect for the black community. We will provide a family friendly environment for tourist visiting Chicago.

*Champion black businesses: GRCAM is an urban voice of advocacy for the black community. Our objective is to build a strong foundation for our programs and services to succeed.

*Serve The Black Community: Offer a 21st century strategy in solving black issues. Strengthening single black families that want to utilize our programs and services through educational projects and neighborhood initiatives.

GRCAI Membership

Networker Membership — In progress

Entrepreneur Membership — In progress, no more meeting clients at the local coffee shop. Once GRCAI is up and running in Chicago we will offer conference rooms and business rental space.

My Vision For Africa. I desire to reconnect with my ancestral homeland Africa. It’s my hope to connect with African Immigrants within the United States that want to work with me in expanding GRCAI in Africa. Those of you who live in Liberia, Ivory Coast, Ghana, Angola, Nigeria, South Africa, Kenya, Ethiopia, Tanzania and Uganda to please encourage your 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 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 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.

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.

Trapped In Trump’s America:

Over the last two years, we have come face to face with every question that the system poses for those who want a better world: How do we confront the growing far Right? How do we organize against all forms of racism and oppression? How do we organize to push aside the existing world order so that we can build a society based on human need instead of one propped up by exploitation and oppression?

We think that a full transformation of the reality that Trump (and the system he supports) represent can only come from a revolution from ordinary law abiding citizens who are tired of being tired by career politicians who are self-serving. Join the Grass Roots Community Activist Movement to overcome the crises of our time.

Since Black America has rejected my plan for over 15 years I decided to make my organization 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. GRCAM/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.
