(GRCAM vs. ADOS)
First I would like to say I have much respect for Antonio Moore he addresses social issues that are relevant to the Black Community such as Mass Incarceration to Wealth Inequality. These are the same issues I discuss on my podcast. He is the co-founder of American Descendants of Slaves (ADOS) is a political movement that seeks reparations for American Descendants of slaves. They focus on African American/Black America experience and the continuing struggle for social/economic justice in the United States. ADOS have been historically excluded and denied. A key objective of the movement demand a specific agenda with policy which address the losses stemming from the Institutionalized Racism, Jim Crow, Redlining, Convict Leasing, Mass Incarceration and Voting Oppression. ADOS key objective is for reparations for American descendants of slaves who were held in captivity in the United States as well as a larger Black agenda that demands a New Deal for Black Americans.
A multi-billion dollar infrastructure plan targeted to ADOS communities along with financial compensation for benign neglect of those communities by the Federal Government, comprehensive prison reform and rehabilitation, a refocused oversight and enforcement for ADOS economic inclusion from American banks, and ADOS college debt forgiveness and health care coverage. Supporters of ADOS push the issue on social media with the hashtag #ADOS. ADOS wants to distinguish itself from African Immigrants and Afro Caribbean to lineage and culture what it means to be African American whose ancestors built the wealth of the United States.
The only problem I see with ADOS is we don’t have an economic base therefore we don’t have any leverage. We are only 12% of the population and sitting out of the 2020 election will not change our circumstance. After 52 years of marching and protesting we still don’t have equal protection under the law so how can we expect to get reparations? In contrast, I created the Grass Roots Community Activist Movement (GRCAM) because I was fed up with all of the division among Black People. Pan Africanism was not working for African Americans/Black Americans. I wanted to start a new movement I created my first group on November 10th 1991 on a site called Gopher. I wanted to help raise awareness about the genocide which is taking place within our inner cities in America starting in Chicago. I also wanted to connect with other like-minded African Americans, Afro-Brazilians, Afro-Canadians, Afro-Caribbeans, Afro-Europeans, African Immigrants and Native Africans from around the globe.
After 15 years of being rejected, humiliated and ignored by established black organizations including the black church in Chicago. I decided to document my experience 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 within the United States to join my management team in order to make my Black Christian Business effective and successful for years to come. Nehemiah was called by God to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem. He did not build that wall by himself he had a professional team people like Architects, Brick layers and Engineers.
Like wise, I want Black Middle-Class Professionals who have the following credentials: 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. 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 turning my virtual Christian socialist organization into a real Black 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, my revised book and now through my upcoming urban Christian film (Hood Liberator Made In Chicago: The War Against Willie Lynch Begins). This is my last attempt to try to do something positive for my racial group in America.
The proceeds from my film will go towards me hiring Black Middle Class Professionals who will assist me and Sister Rena with the daily operation of my Black Christian Business (GRCAI) the Grass Roots Community Activist Institute. We will cover Austin, Garfield Park and North Lawndale on the Westside of Chicago and eventually expand to the Southside of Chicago investing and working to rebuild Black Wall Street. We also aim to expand abroad to ten African nations. We will offer a comprehensive array of services in the areas of health, housing, jobs and social justice and take the lead in city, state, and national policy leading to a more just global society.
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. This is why I created my groups to help me spread my information with your friends & family. The Grass Roots Community Activist Movement 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. The Grass Roots Community Activist Institute will be membership based. Everyone will be screen, 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. This is my contribution back to my community, society and throughout the African Diaspora.
