In order to give everyone on my friends list, everyone in my social groups and all of my international friends and group members from around the globe an opportunity to participate in this webinar.

It’s convenient because you can participate, listen, or watch this podcast/video in the privacy of your home. You would need to connect with me through Facebook messenger as a voice call or a video call. The phone icon is for voice call and the camera icon is for video call. After I done with my peptalk I will open the phone lines for Q and A.

I welcome those of you from the Faith Community, the Art Community, the Conscious Community, the Black Community and my Group Members.

My message to the Faith Community, what I am experiencing is spiritual warfare at it’s best. The devil has been fighting me tooth and nail against me from moving my virtual Christian socialist organization from behind a computer starting in Chicago. Please be in agreement with me that God will move the IRS to approve my 501 (c)(3) application so that I can open up a business account with my bank and begin soliciting Angel Investors & Sponsors to invest $400,000 into my film project. I will use the funds to hire qualified film crew & quality actors. Pray that my film will be a hit at the box office and will reach the masses from around the globe in Jesus name!

The proceeds from my film will put me in a better position financially to hire Black Middle Class Professionals, purchase property and create legitimate jobs for our youth and Single Black Families that want to utilize our programs and services in Jesus name! It’s true God does not see color but man does. The most segregated day of the week is on Sunday morning. A majority of Black Christians are in Black Churches and a majority of White Christians are in White Churches that’s the facts. America was built on division, hatred and institutionalized racism Black People have to accept it.

There is a divide in the Black Church based on man made Christian denominations. According to Ephesians 4:5 One Lord, one faith, one baptism. 1 Corinthians 12:12–31 For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ. My question to Black Christians why is the Black Church not as effective as it use to be in the Black Community? The answer is corruption in the church. For example, the sexual abuse among the Catholic Church, black preacher by the name of Creflo Dollar and his $65 Million Dollar Jet and the preachers of LA is just a few examples of the mockery of God’s word and his standard. How can we as Christians tell worldly people anything if we are acting just like them?

Jesus/Yeshua gave me specific instructions beyond the four walls of the church my purpose is to make an impact in the economy or the market place. First meet the need of the Black Community reach the un-reachable, the un-loveable, the broken-hearted, the homeless, the sick and broken in spirit through our programs/services and show them an authentic form of Christianity for me that would be Christian socialism. 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 Matthew 28: 16–20. 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 message to the Art Community. My goal is to mobilize my true supporters to come forth and be apart of my film project in Chicago I don't have another 28 years to waste. If you are serious and able to travel to Chicago for our open audition then please send me your email address to my Facebook inbox and be on stand by until I am able to get the green light from the IRS to move forward in getting my film fully funded.

I am looking for the following: Season film crew such as Sound Technicians, Computer Graphic Designers, Assistant Director, Director of Photography, Camera Assistants, Hair & Makeup Artist, Production Assistants, Actors/Actresses, Comedians, Dancers, Models, Musicians, Poets, Gospel Singers, Screen Writers and Secular artist.

My message to the Conscious Community. Before Occupy Wall Street Movement, Black Lives Matter Movement and American Descendants of Slaves there was the Grass Roots Community Activist Movement. All of these organization began online the difference is I am trying to Recruit, Inform and Promote my cause in order to get smart boots on the ground in Chicago. Where are my Black Wall Street Builders? African Americans have been marching and protesting for equal justice under the law for 52 years still to this day the financial elites refuse to give African Americans equal justice under the law best example is the Eric Garner verdict and the Trayvon Martin verdict. As long as African Americans remain in the United States there will be no equal justice under the law because of institutionalized racism, social inequality and police brutality.

Antonio Moore from Tonetalks is saying the same thing which I have written about Black Americans only own 2% of the nations wealth while White People own 99% of the nations wealth. If we can’t get equal protection under the law how in the world are we going to get reparation?

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 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.

My message to the Black Community. GRCAM is a 21st century Black Community Empowerment and Kingdom Building approach to solving black issues in America and throughout the Diaspora. GRCAM will focus on two fronts domestically and internationally.

On the domestic front our mission

To eradicate Urban Violence in Chicago through our programs and services.
To tackle poverty, institutionalized racism and police brutality within the communities we will serve.

To promote economic opportunities in the African American community by being a community advocate and resource for our members.

To strengthen the black family by working directly with single black mothers/fathers who want to utilize our services. For example we will offer youth services to children and young adults by providing them with a stipends to be in our films, stage plays, and music videos. This act alone will have a positive impact in the black community base on our budget and sponsorship.

To create a sense of national urgency about the genocide which is taken place within our inner cities in America starting in Chicago. We will achieve this through journalism, social media and public forums. In all of our work we strive to educate and enlarge our audience of concern citizens who care about solving black issues once and for all in America.

The Grass Roots Community Activist Institute will take the lead in the marketplace by creating community co-op, community grocery stores and eventually community housing. For example, GRCAI will pay Black Women the same as Black Men, offer a consensus-based decision making, democratized wages and establish a worker-owned cooperative for our members.

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 reliable 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.

GRCAI main objective is to promote economic opportunities in the African American community by becoming an advocate and resource for our members. GRCAI will provide local food connections that are accessible through our cooperative grocery stores for our members. In all of our work we strive to educate and enlarge our audience of concerned citizens who care about solving black issues once and for all in America and throughout the African Diaspora.

Before I can talk about an international front, I need to get my Black Christian Business (GRCAI) the Grass Roots Community Activist Institute established in America first for credibility, so that Jesus/Yeshua will receive all the credit.

My vision goes beyond Black America I have an African plan. Africa is our ancestral homeland and we as Black People throughout the Diaspora need to go back and help share our knowledge, talent, and skills in order to put Africa back at it’s rightful place in the world. My goal for my African family is to unite likeminded African Americans, Afro-Brazilians, Afro-Canadians, Afro-Caribbeans, Afro-Europeans, African Immigrants and Native Africans to be in agreement with me and help me turn my ideas into reality I don’t have another 28 years to waste.

It’s my hope to recruit recruit brave and smart African Immigrants in America to assist me in turning my virtual Christian socialist organization into a real business. Once we’re established in America I plan on expanding my business to 10 African Nations they are as follows: Liberia, Ivory Coast, Ghana, Angola, Nigeria, South Africa, Kenya, Ethiopia, Tanzania and Uganda.

I encourage my African friends to push pressure on your governments to allow us to have citizenship within 3 years if they are serious about us doing business on the continent. We as black people must move away from being tribal.

I encourage my African friends to share my book information with your family or friends who reside in Canada, Europe, or in the United States to purchase my revised book and read my story for themselves. My revised book is the foundation of my future Christian business. We will go through the proper channels with their government to start the Grass Roots Community Activist Institute of Africa as an (NGO) Non-government organization.

We will offer private employment to our members based on our budget and our sponsorship. We will provide infrastructure for clean running water, agricultural technology to feed the people, offer solar energy to help our members with their electrical generators and most of all help improve the African economy. In time, we will expand to Brazil and specific places in the Caribbean such as Barbados, Bahamas, Haiti and Jamaica.

The Grass Roots Community Activist Institute of Africa will be an effort to assist the diaspora in the ability to shop with, visit, invest in and relocation back to Africa. All of our products and services will be provided by skilled and professional Africans from around the continent. It’s important for the Diaspora to make the connection physically and economically. GRCAI of Africa, will be there to help arrange your travel, welcome you upon arrival and assist with tours, translators and more.

My message to my Group Members. It’s time for people in my social groups to stand up, it’s been 28 years that I have been online trying to Recruit, Inform, and Promote my vision about improving our inner cities in America starting in Chicago and my vision for Africa. I did not ask for this God has placed this on my heart since I was in my 20’s now I am in my 40’s. 28 years is long enough I refuse to be ignored my vision is about improving Black America and improving Africa if given a chance.

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.

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. 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. 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.

My Credibility

Some of the tangibles or incentives I offer people on my friends list who interact with me are as follows: I assist people on my friends list and people in my social groups with creating basic websites, finding college scholarships/grants; housing; legal services all for free. I don't ask for donations instead I encourage people on my friends list and people in my social groups to please support me by purchasing my revised book and read my story (The Solution For Black America) second edition. It's available as an e-book for $9.99 and or as a soft cover book for $15.00 plus shipping and handling. My revised book is the foundation for my Black Christian Business (GRCAI) the Grass Roots Community Activist Institute.

The End (the phone lines are now open).
