Welcome to Help Stop The Genocide In American Ghettos Podcast I am your host Emmanuel Barbee. Tonight we’re having a special edition to this podcast I am using this Facebook Live Event to recruit people on my friends list and especially people who are in my social groups that are interested in being apart of my Film Project. I am in the process of making a hybrid documentary which is part fiction and non-fiction. To learn more about my film just click on my Medium Page entitled My Truth-Hood Liberator Made In Chicago in the comment section. Don’t forget to subscribe to my Mixcloud Page and my Youtube channel and share with your friends.
After I finish with my pep talk then I will open up phone lines so that my listeners can ask me specific questions. In order to participate you have to connect with me through Facebook messenger as a voice call you would need to click on the phone icon for a video call you would need to click on the camera icon. I created GRCAM which is the Grass Roots Community Activist Movement in order to mobilize brave and smart Progressive African Americans, Afro-Brazilians, Afro-Canadians, Afro-Caribbeans, Afro-Europeans, African Immigrants and Native Africans throughout the African Diaspora. We welcome all Christian denominations, Moderate Muslims, Secular People and Non-black sympathizers. This is an authentic black organization who are interested in solving black issues once and for all in America.
I use to network with 50,000 people alone on Myspace back in 2004. I lost many of my group members from MSN, Netscape, AOL and now Google this is why I encourage all of my group members to send me there email address so that we can stay connected. This is my second Facebook page my first Facebook page was hacked. My social groups represent the Grass Roots Community Activist Movement. I believe we have all the talent right here among ourselves. In my social groups alone I see a community of writers, directors, cinematographers, and storytellers that the world has yet to see. I have taken the responsibility to enroll in film school and I have completed my training from Chicago Film Makers. I learn the ins and outs of becoming a film director and a producer. I also learned how to write a business proposal to Angel Investors, Corporations and Foundations who would be interested in investing $400,000 for my film project.
The funding will go towards me hiring qualified film crew such as Sound Technicians, Computer Graphic Designers, Assistant Director, Director of Photography, Camera Assistants, Hair & Makeup Artist, Production Assistants and of course quality actors. The Black Panther film which made 1 Billion dollars worldwide set the standard of what a quality film looks like. Even if we don’t reach that expectation it’s my hope that we will come close to it. Unlike the Black Panther film which only benefited Walt Disney the proceeds from my film will benefit the black community in Austin, Garfield Park and North Lawndale on the Westside of Chicago. I will turn my virtual Christian socialist organization into a real Christian business (GRCAI) The Grass Roots Community Activist Institute of Chicago will be a nonprofit cooperative.
Our mission to eradicate urban violence in the city of Chicago through our programs and services. We also want to meet the social needs of the urban communities by strengthening single black families that want to utilize our services. To tackle poverty, institutionalized racism, and police brutality within the community we will serve. To create jobs that can be a career and put our members on the path to reaching the American dream. To create an international network to help promote economic opportunities throughout the African Diaspora by being an advocate and a reliable source for our members. GRCAI will be dedicated to providing quality programming, community resources, office space for our independent filmmakers, visual artists, and black entrepreneurs. Our goal is to rebuild Black Wall Street starting in Chicago.
GRCAI will produce independent films, documentaries aim at addressing social issues and other forms of inequality often ignored by mainstream media. This means creating a safe space for under-represented artists to share their work particularly Black People given our struggle for visibility in the mainstream film industry. Another goal for GRCAI is to forge connections between local, national, and international Black Film Makers. Art plays a vital role in bringing people together and encouraging them to think deeply about issues of equality and social justice.
Through our interactive theatre, we will encourage interaction among our audience. Our goal is to wake up black people and others so that we can empower community residents at the local level. The Grass Roots Community Activist Institute of Chicago will have train professionals in theatre, dance, music, and visual arts. GRCAI aims to recruit, promote and inform black people throughout the African Diaspora. GRCAI objective is to reclaim dignity and respect in the black community locally and globally through our programs which include:
Activism and Awareness
GRCAI Fest: Will include a diverse culture in the black community such as Progressive African Americans, Afro-Brazilians, Afro-Canadians, Afro-Caribbeans, Afro-Europeans and African Immigrants. This event seeks to bring together all who support equality and social justice.Membership: We understand the importance of a movement worldwide by sharing our experience and skills to empower our people worldwide not just lip service.
Sponsorship: The Grass Roots Community Activist Institute will provide sponsorships to our active members in the forms of waivers, charitable contributions, and sponsoring various events.

Help Stop The Genocide In American Ghettos Podcast was form as a way for me to network with people on my friends list and people in my social groups via voice chat or video chat in the form of networking, socializing and exchanging ideas. On the show I give my guest speakers an opportunity to promote their business, talk about recent accomplishments, or share something cool they are working on.
I host my online talkshow (Help Stop The Genocide In American Ghettos Podcast) in order to interact with everyone on my friends list and everyone in my social groups. I want to give everyone an opportunity to promote their businesses, ministries and or share their talents & skills with my listeners from the podcast community. After the show I usually offer my guest speakers an incentive by sharing with them how to create their own podcast or create their own Youtube channel and earn revenue from it. I prefer that we do a phone test first to check and see if your phone device is compatible with Facebook messenger as a voice call, if not then I recommend that you create a free Skype account.
I am seeking 30 black middle class professionals within the United States to assist me with the daily operation of this organization. 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.
Once I have my management team in place then we will start the Grass Roots Community Activist Institute of Chicago starting on the West side of Chicago we will cover Austin, Garfield Park and North Lawndale. In time we will expand to the Southside of Chicago. We aim to equip black entrepreneurs and create an infrastructure for local artist in order to rebuild the black community by applying the principles from my revised book which will transform our inner cities into flourishing communities.
My Vision For Africa: To reconnect with my ancestral homeland Africa. It’s my hope to connect with African Immigrants within the United States who will work with me and Sister Rena in rebuilding our urban communities within 10 cities in the Midwest. Before we expand to Africa I need my international friends who live in Liberia, Ivory Coast, Ghana, Angola, Nigeria, South Africa, Kenya, Ethiopia, Tanzania and Uganda to encourage your governments to allow us to have citizenship within 3 years if you are serious about having us do business on the African continent. We as black people must move from being tribal.
Please encourage your family and friends who reside in Canada, Europe and the United States to purchase my revised book and work with me and Sister Rena this will help speed up the process for us to recruit brave and smart African Immigrants in America to assist me in setting up chapters in Africa. We will go through the proper channels with their government to start our (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 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 Afro-Caribbean Islands.
The Grass Roots Community Activist Movement is a 21st century community building approach to solving social problems within the black community and throughout the African Diaspora. GRCAM offers a black economic agenda, promote a strong sustainable urban community through advocacy and innovation.
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. In such a crucial time as these, we can’t afford to go backwards. I’m not here to entertain I’m here to recruit, inform and promote my vision about solving black issues once and for all in America. It’s time for us as Black People to embrace new ideas to solve our current social conditions.
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 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.
The financial elites created the black ghettos, welfare and flooded our community with drugs and guns. In my book I call it perfect genocide. They divided us based on social class, religion, and political affiliation (Democrat or Republican). During integration or the Housing Act of 1968 our Middle Class Black Professionals relocated to white neighborhoods.
Our role models were gone and the black family begin breaking down removing the black man from the home. Government food stamps, Abortion, Drugs, Prison Pipeline all planned to keep us divided. The Goal of my virtual Christian socialist organization is to connect with other like minded Brothers, Sisters Black People and others and educate them about God plan for our lives, and Satan plan to destroy us through institutionalized racism.
Capitalism has transformed everything into a commodity something that could be bought and sold by those who own it, not to be used for the benefit of those who produced it. To increase profits for stockholders and CEOs. For example, insurance companies closely track people health conditions in order to determine how big a risk a person are when they sign up for insurance. Pharmaceutical companies invest many dollars in improving existing medicines so they can charge thousands of dollars per pill to line the pockets of investors.
The wealthy have access to preventive care, medicine on demand, attentive doctors and other health workers, and affordable procedures as needed. The poor do not. The wealthy live in healthy and safe environments. The poor and working class live in the opposite environment. The most oppressed people in America are poor blacks who face even more disastrous conditions than the working poor because of institutionalized racism. We live in a society of great resources, at a time of great technological advancement, yet millions are denied access to resources. Workers only produce the resources they do not control them, the financial elites decide our health and wellbeing. They decide whether we get cancer treatments and diabetes medicines and at what price. The vast supermarket chains leave poor and working-class neighborhoods in food deserts. The energy corporations pollute poor and working-class neighborhoods. And the services available to our communities are being cut.
Capitalism has proven itself to make the world sick. It will only continue to make the world sicker. What then is the solution? The Grass Roots Community Activist Movement is more than just a new business endeavor it’s a new system.
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 to join my management team. 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 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 (Help Stop The Genocide In American Ghettos Podcast, my revised book (The Solution For Black America) second edition 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. I believe this act of human collaboration across an open platform is essential to the low income African American community and our collective future.
I don’t ask for donations instead I encourage people to 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. The Grass Roots Community Activist Institute (GRCAI) will be 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. This is my contribution back to my community, society and throughout the African Diaspora.
