(Happy 29th Anniversary GRCAM)


Welcome to Help Stop The Genocide In American Ghettos Podcast, I’m your host Emmanuel Barbee. If you are new to this channel then please subscribe to our Youtube channel so that you can be notified every time we upload a new video. I use Youtube and Facebook live to stream my podcast. Tonight is a special segment Happy 29th Anniversary GRCAM.

First I would like give a special shout out to our contributors Evangelist Stephanie Oneal, Missionary Savannah Rush, Evangelist Martha Mumba & Sister Rena for working with me and making this possible. Our goal for 2021 is to move GRCAM forward we need more contributors from the group we need all hands on board. Our accomplishments in 2020 are as follows:

* May 1 2020 our 501(c)(3) application was approved.

* We open our business account in order for us to receive donations through Paypal.

* We launch our virtual store and teamed up with Teespring to help advertise and sell our merchandise such as a COVID Facemask, Coffee Mugs, Posters, Handbag and T-shirts. All proceeds will go towards our film project.

* We created a Patreon Page

Our goal is raise $500,000 for our film project (Hood Liberator Made In Chicago: The War Against Willie Lynch Begins). We are sincerely grateful to all of our supporters, no matter how big or small the donations are. I am encouraging everyone on my friends list & everyone in my social groups to please purchase my e-book on Amazon it's available for $9.99 help us get this e-book on the best sellers list so that people can take our causer serious. Our objective is to get our film project fully funded and play it by ear during COVID-19. Once this virus is cleaned up then we will shoot our film and promote our film in selected movie theaters and sell our DVDs. Together we will put GRCAM on the map and turn my vision for Black America into a reality.

I use this platform to interact with everyone on my friends list and everyone in my social groups by giving Black business owners free air time to promote their products and services, I give people in the faith community an opportunity to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ and ordinary law abiding citizens an opportunity to share their special talents/skills to my listeners from the podcast community.

After the show I offer my guest speakers an incentive by teaching them how to create their own podcast & Youtube channel to help them earn extra revenue. I also assist people on my friends list with creating basic websites, finding college scholarships/grants; housing & legal services all for free.

Our Christian business (GRCAI of Chicago) or the Grass Roots Community Activist Institute of Chicago will be in the business of creating docu-dramas, short films, theater, photography, fine arts, music, poetry, literature, sculpture and dance for inner city youth. Once this virus is cleaned up we plan on launching African tours in order for us to move from behind a computer and make real connections with our Global Black Family on continent starting with South Africa in order to build a bridge between the Diaspora and Continental Africans.

I created (GRCAM) the Grass Roots Community Activist Movement because I got tired of all of the division among Black People. Pan-Africanism was not working for Black Americans, I wanted to start anew movement for Black People to unite us based on individuals who cared about solving black issues. I created GRCAM in 1991 on a site called Gopher. I wanted to create an organization that focus specifically on solving black issues in America. I wanted to connect with other like-minded African Americans, Afro-Brazilians, Afro-Canadians, Afro-Caribbeans, Afro-Europeans, African Immigrants, Afro-Latinos through out the Diaspora.

The Grass Roots Community Activist Movement is an interactive virtual Christian Socialist organization using my Christian groups & Secular groups to network on a global level. GRCAM is a revolutionary 21st Century Kingdom Building, Global Black Unity and Black Empowerment in order to solve social problems within the Black Community and throughout the African Diaspora.

GRCAM is a virtual 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 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.

I try to explain to my group members that Nehemiah did not rebuild the walls of Jerusalem by himself he had brick layers, engineers and architects. Like wise, I want Black Middle-Class Professionals who have the following credentials: Investors, Business Partners, Black 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. I encourage all of my Christian friends to read Exodus 36:1-5 (NIV).

29 years is a jail sentence if it was up to me everyone in my groups would do there part and support this organization by purchasing my revised book & sharing my podcast with your friends that would help get the ball rolling. My film is my last attempt to try to do something positive for my racial group in America. Before I cut and run to Africa I want to do something to help my people who are trapped in American ghettos by setting up satellite communities within the inner cities. When I see something I don't like I fix it. I was not called to start a small storefront I am called to unite the Global Black Family and help solve our social issues domestically & internationally.

Middle class Africans & there politicians need to do a better job as it pertains to trickle down economics in order to make sure they're providing opportunities and not just hoarding all the resources. It's my hope that through GRCAM we can form a global black union. We have been lacking leadership and organization since the 60's well GRCAM is on the scene and we will promote a 21st Century revolutionize mindset to our members. GRCAM wants to make a change that will be meaningful and relevant towards the development of Africa. We have to work together and teach the next generation growing up. Amazon started off with selling books now look at where they are today. Akon solved a need with his solar lights in Senegal now they are naming a city after him.

Through GRCAM I am trying to raise the bar in Black America, Africa & the Caribbean. Our goal is to help our people globally whether they are on the continent or in the Diaspora. We're working hard to create a platform for Black People/African People. A majority of our people are getting their information from mainstream media. We've got to work as a cooperative. One of our major problems is that we don't think on a global level we usually only focus on a local level. The financial elites want to see us divided and view ourselves as different.

China's business model in Africa is we will help you, then charge you something you can't afford and then we own it. They are discriminating against Continental Africans and they are not patronizing African businesses. I mentioned in my revised book how the Berlin conference of 1884 created a plan for Europeans to keep Africa poor while they loot Africa's natural resources. We're going to have to be that talented tenth in order to build Africa. We as the Diaspora need to get involved with making our presence known on the continent so that we can compete with nonblack foreigners. If we lose Africa we lose everything. We need to study Miranda 46 that was a plan during the Jimmy Carter Administration to implement policies to divide us from Africa.

When I start talking about Black Empowerment many Black Americans avoid me in real life and online. Your average African American only focus on getting jobs and want white people to treat them nice. They're not trying to be liberated. We have to start looking at the future 100 years from now. What are we going to leave for our children? There are things we can do on a micro level & on a macro level. If Black People start organizing and stop fighting then we can make progress in our community and in Africa. We need to start thinking globally because every other group send money back to there homeland except us. Other groups who are coming to Africa they have wealth and they have a nation we don't have nationhood because we're not unified. The financial elites have conditioned us to be divided based on social class, religion and political affiliation.

What I am trying to do through GRCAM is transferable skills which is the exchange of information from my online resources to my group members worldwide. We as black people/African people have to understand that we're in an economic game economics is about the production, distribution, and consumption of goods and services. GRCAM is about promoting Black Empowerment and Economic Empowerment. I am called by Yeshua to move beyond the four walls of the church and make an impact in the Black Community and in the economy through my Christian business known as (GRCAI) the Grass Roots Community Activist Institute.

The Grass Roots Community Activist Institute is based on my experience we will not focus on black celebrities but rather ordinary black law abiding citizens by providing affordable access to state of the art rental co-working space, production studio and office suites, educational services, financial resources, and dedicated community mentors.

(GRCAI) the Grass Roots Community Activist Institute will have a Nonprofit Cooperative sector and also a For Profit Service Based sector. GRCAI will have five components:

1.Social Service component

2.Spiritual component which will be optional for secular people

3.Entertainment component

4.Entrepreneur component

5.Political component under the for profit service based sector

In time a Health & Wellness component and a Media component. Under the For Profit Service Based sector: 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.

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 focus is on providing quality goods and services to the low income African American community and working directly with black families that want to utilize our services. Finally, I wrote my book in order to generate capital/seed money so that I can hire 30 black middle class professionals within the United States to assist me with the daily operation of my business. I want to make Chicago a model first before we expand to at least 5 cities in America God willing.

The Grass Roots Community Activist Institute objective is to become the heart of the Black Community on Westside of Chicago specifically in Austin, Garfield Park and North Lawndale. GRCAI also plans on expanding to the Southside of Chicago and send scouts to help replicate the business in order to make Chicago a model for other cities in America. GRCAI will function in the areas of community co-op, community grocery stores, community healthcare and community housing. GRCAI will operate on two fronts a domestic front and on an international front.

On a domestic front within the United States:

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 push for social change through our stories using media and advocacy. We will achieve this through our films, stage plays, journalism to change the narrative. We will strive to educate and enlarge our audience of concern citizens who care about solving black issues in America.

To eradicate urban violence in Chicago through our programs and services.

To tackle poverty, institutionalized racism and police brutality within the Black Community.

To promote economic opportunities in the African American community by becoming an advocate, offer stipends and resource for our members.

To offer a second chance program for ex-offenders of non-violent crimes, former gang members and homeless individuals within the community.

To provide programs and services to strengthen the black family by creating jobs and building a strong economic base.

To heal collectively from this Willie Lynch mentality in America and on the African continent heal from this colonized mentality.

To examine the Amish community, the Asian community and the Jewish community. So that we can practice group economics and form our own code of conduct.

To get our house in order first before we invite none black sympathizers into our space.

On an international front:

(GRCAI of Africa) the Grass Roots Community Activist Institute of Africa we plan on hiring African immigrants in America to encourage the Diaspora to set up a chapter in South Africa and eventually in 9 other African Nations Liberia, Ivory Coast, Ghana, Angola, Nigeria, Kenya, Ethiopia, Tanzania and Uganda. I am encouraging my international friends to put pressure on African governments to allow the Diaspora to have citizenship within 5 years if they are serious about us doing business on the African continent.
GRCAI of Africa will go through the proper channels with the African government to start our (NGO) Non-government organization. We are determined

To work with our disadvantaged brothers and sisters in the society to improve and enhance the capacity for self-development.

To promote GRCAI of Africa to the African people

To fight against corruption

To nurture young Africans by conducting mentoring programs and various youth activities

To promote education through establishing learning centers, book donations, to enable them to achieve their academic goals.

To promote health among the people living in rural and low-income urban areas by organizing for medical camps and health awareness campaigns.

To participate in various economic activities geared towards improving the standards of living among the people in low-income rural and urban centers.

GRCAI of Africa will offer private employment to our members based on our budget and sponsorship. We will provide infrastructure for building bridges, roads, power lines, clean running water, agricultural technology, solar and wind 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. In time, we will expand to Brazil and specific places in the Caribbean such as Barbados, Bahamas, Haiti and Jamaica.

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 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.
The virtual phone lines are now open for Q & A.
