What Is The Grass Roots Community Activist Movement?

Posted in Community, Uncategorized with tags , , on August 19, 2011 by Mr. Emmanuel Barbee

The Grass Roots Community Activist Movement is an underground movement started back in nineteen ninety one by Emmanuel Barbee. He is the Founder and President of The Grass Roots Community Activist Movement. He is an innovative professional with visionary Entrepreneur skills in Social Media and Advertising. “This is what I bring to the table excellent interpersonal skills and innovation, I am an effective leader who has envisioned cross functional teams for multiple urban communities as well as develop business plans and marketing strategies, I truly enjoy being able to get my hands dirty when the need arises and continually learning new skills and acquiring experiences at every opportunity. The goal of GRCAM is to raise awareness about African Americans that are trapped in American ghettos. My ultimate goal is to help stop the genocide in American ghettos”

He consider himself as a Christian Socialist which is a person that  believe in Jesus Christ and show love and concern for others. The socialist aspect focus on the distribution of goods owned collectively and that political power should be exercised by the whole community. And also that moral obligation of humankind is the improvement of human welfare.  This organization is based on Emmanuel Barbee new book “The Solution For Black America: Reclaiming, Rebuilding, and Restoring The Urban Ghettos In America.”  He also claim to have the answer to end gun violence, poverty, and structural inequality in America by his creator. He has been a community activist for years; He is a native from Chicago Illinois. Despite his constant threats from criminals within his former community, Emmanuel Barbee has been on the front line trying to unify his community on the Westside of Chicago. Emmanuel Barbee has had this vision 19 years ago but no one in his community wanted to do a partnership with him. After being robbed several times and having been beaten by thugs his decided to relocate from his community but found a voice online to start up his cause.

Emmanuel has been writing about his vision online and created several online groups. He finally took his vision to the next level by writing his book “The Solution For Black America: Reclaiming, Rebuilding, and Restoring The Urban Ghettos In America.”  He has shown resilience from being illegally taken away from his home and being force to become award of the state foster care system (Department OF Children and Family Services) “DCFS.” His many trials and tribulations have made him the man he is today. Despite his dyslexia he graduated from Crane High School and also from Northeastern Illinois University with a Bachelor’s Degree in liberal arts.

Mr.Emmanuel Barbee is trying to start up his new business on the Westside of Chicago either in Austin or Garfield Park. The Grass Roots Community Activist Institute will function as an alternative school. They  will offer four basic classes that will focus on students natural talents. An acting class, journalism, oil painting, and music workshop. He will also offer an onsite child daycare. In time he hopes to expand his business to the Southside of Chicago and eventually in every ghetto in America. His organization has three main components: social service, spiritual, and political.

For example, the social service component would consist of the single family services which would assist single black mothers and single black fathers who reside in the ghettos with job training, education, and violence prevention. He wrote his book in hopes of  recruiting reasonable brothers, sisters, and others to assist him in turning his vision into reality. He will also launch a new political party on the local level “Democratic Socialist party” which would focus on local issues in the African American Community. Emmanuel Barbee’s organization will fulfill Dr. King’s dream of ending poverty and structural inequality in America.

This organization was formed to create specialized services within the African American Community. Our focus is on assisting low income single black mothers and single black fathers that reside in the inner city ghettos of Chicago. We will bring economic empowerment to the community we serve. We will also to create strong partnerships that include retailers and local residents. The primary goal of these partnerships is to create a place where the integrity creates a lasting foundation for success and changes the economic destiny of people lives.The Grass Roots Community Activist Institute is an ambitious and extraordinary endeavor that represents:

* Strong revitalization of the community for residents,and the surrounding communities.

* Provide an alternative school for at- risk youths and allow them to become competitive in the job market.

* To make the urban ghettos become prosperous by creating jobs in da hood and teach our clients on how to become self-sufficient while at the same time reducing dependancy on government.

In his book “The Solution For Black America: Reclaiming, Rebuilding, and Restoring The Urban Ghettos In America.” He describe his experience growing up in the inner city ghettos of Chicago. He discuss the current conditions facing the Black Community today and offer a new perspective in improving the lives of those trapped in American ghettos. He explain how capitalism has divided the black race by class such as the middle-class, the working class, and the under class. He explain how the American Dream of a secure, comfortable standard of living is becoming obsolete. No longer is making good grades and landing a secured job is the norm. The United States is in danger of losing it’s competiveness thanks in part to the elitist that run our country political decisions.

For example: Our industrial base is vanishing, taking with it the kind of jobs that have formed the backbone of our economy for more than a century; our education system is in shambles, making it harder for tomorrow’s workforce to acquire the information and training it needs to land good twenty-first-century jobs; our infrastructure—roads, bridges, water, and electrical systems is crumbling; our economic system has been reduced to recurring episodes of Corporations on Wall Street; our political system is broken, all because of a small financial elite group using greed and power of the checkbook to control both parties. And America’s middle class, the driver of so much of our economic success and political stability, is rapidly disappearing, forcing us to confront the fear that we are slipping as a nation that our children and grandchildren will enjoy fewer opportunities.

In The Solution For Black America: Reclaiming, Rebuilding, and Restoring The Urban Ghettos In America, I cite a number of alarming facts and figures that suggest Black America and America in general is on the decline. For example: 26 million Americans unemployed or underemployed homes were repossessed by banks in the first quarter of 2009, 1.51 million people filed for personal bankruptcy during the ending of 2009.

Forty years ago, top executives at S&P companies made an average of 30 times what their workers did; today they make 300 times what their workers make The percentage of all income taken home by the wealthiest 10 percent in 2007: 49.7 the highest share recorded since 1917 The percentage of financial wealth that, by 2007, was owned by the top 20 percent of Americans: 93 The unemployment rate, by the end of 2009, for the bottom 10 percent of income earners: 31 (versus just 3 percent for those in the top 10 percent, earning $150,000 per year or more)

The percentage by which the poverty rate grew in the suburbs of the largest metro areas in the United States between 2000 and 2008: 25 making the suburbs home to the country’s biggest and most rapidly expanding segment of the poor. The financial industry’s share of domestic corporate profits just before the financial crisis hit: 41 percent (versus 21-30 percent in the 1990s and no more than 16 percent from 1973 to 1985) Percentage of workers who have borrowed against their 401(k) plans, according to Fidelity Investments: 22 The percentage of Americans who have less than $10K saved for retirement: 43

I have provided a road map to end  gun violence, poverty, and structural inequality in America. Emmanuel Barbee call upon reasonable brothers, sisters, and others nationwide to join his organization “The Grass Roots Community Activist Movement” which will continue where the Civil Right’s Movement ended “The Poor People’s March” We will address and solve all the social issues facing the urban poor and provide  concrete solution to the social problems in Black America as well as America in general.

Emmanuel Barbee claims to be a walking library, he is gifted in the area of research and he says he can find anything in print. His area of Specialties are that of Substance Abuse Counselor; Emergency Room Technician; and Renal Dialysis Technologist. In addition my specialty includes Sociology; New Business Development; Social Media Marketing; Guerrilla Marketing; Conflict Resolution/Negotiation; Competitive Analysis and research; Trend Spotting; Budget Management; Recruiting;Interviewing; Training. In addition, he also assist others who have accepted his hand of friendship with finding college scholarships/grants,small business grants; housing;legal services and employment on a national level all for free. He also provides the reader with direct contact with him by given his reader his email and access to his web journal. Emmanuel Barbee is on 300 different online social networks and he interact with 125,000 people from around the globe. He explains that he wants to make his city “Chicago” a model and in time expand to every major city in America and eventually aboard to places like Africa and the Caribbean Islands.

He also have several online groups one for his Christian friends and also for his Non-Christian friends. He encourage his members to interact with each other as well as with him. His goal for creating several online groups to eventually unite all his friends from around the country once he has a place of busines. He explains to his friends and associates that he will work with them and their immediate family for life as long as they keep the lines of communication open with him.

“The Grass Roots Community Activist Movement” aim is twofold. One is to recruit prospective professional readers and the other is to seek Single Black Mother’s and Single Black Father’s who reside in the ghetto that might want to use his services. His organization will provide resources to help low income families with their children from birth until they complete High School. His organization will also assist young Black Men to avoid the streets and be productive citizens. If the black community support him and accept the principles behind his movement then Emmanuel will move his organization from behind a computer into every ghetto in America. He will provide employment, community resources, and online support groups.

The benefits of joining The Grass Roots Community Activist Movement is that you will become part of history just like The Civil Right’s Movement and If someone is doing a start up business Emmanuel will share his resources with them and encourage his cyber friends/supporters to check out their business. Plus you will have direct access to Emmanuel Barbee if you exchange emails and phone numbers with him.

Phase I

Emmanuel Barbee first task is to find 30 people in the United States to come to Chicago and join his board of directors. He require that all his board members need is a two year degree or above as an accountant; lawyer; marketing; social worker; banker; business administration; financial planner; real estate broker; insurance agent; human resource consultant; grant writer; business consultant. This is for anyone in America that’s on my friends list. In order to turn his vision into a reality. In contrast, He will also create an advisory board for people with some college experience or others with no degrees to have a voice in his organization.

Phase II

Once He gets his organization established in his former neighborhood he will operate the Grass Roots Community Activist Movement into several components. One function would be an alternative school, another function would be a spiritual component consist of a Christian camp and another would consist of a Islamic camp for members personal development. And yet another would be an employment training component for those that are members of GRCAM. The Grass Roots Community Activist Movement would hire members first from within the community.

Emmanuel also plan on having a second chance program for ex-felons to give them a chance to reenter the job market as well as providing at-risk youths with employment provided if we are adequately funded. He will also serve single black mothers and single black fathers with their children he explains in depth in my book. Finally, this organization will teach his clients about the importance of voting and about Democratic Socialism. He explain in his book that before native Africans were brought to the United States native Africans practice a form of socialism called Egalitarianism. That would be one of our focus to reconnect back to our roots as black people.

What makes this organization different from past black organizations is that each person in the Chicagoland area would have to be interviewed by Emmanuel and each person would have to sign a consent form stating that they agree with all the principles he have laid out in his book and for each person to take personal accountability and responsibility for their actions as well as be added to his organization’s database. Some of GRCAM programs will be available to the public based on funding his nonprofit division. The for profit the organization will charge a small fee for services.

Emmanuel only want to work with reasonable brothers, sisters, and others in his cause and he is only responsible for those under his leadership and for those who accept the principles behind this movement. Emmanuel has always worked behind the scenes rather than trying to prove to others just how good a person he is but instead he has shown genuine concern for his people that are suffering in poverty and that are trapped in American ghettos due to a bias system that causes classism and racism.

Emmanuel can’t wait for black organizations in Chicago to partner with his cause. He can’t wait on career politicians to decide rather to fund his program. This is why he has dismantled his nonprofit for now and switch to for profit. If interested in working directly with Emmanuel Barbee’s organization he suggest that everyone should first read his book and if they agreement with his vision and accept all the principles he have laid out in the book.  He has provided his email in the book front pages of the book. He recommend that you email him your name and provide a contact number for him to reach you.

If interested in investing in his cause he recommend that you read his story first and if you agree with his vision and all of the principles in the book than email him your name and a contact number for him to reach you.  This organization is a way for Emmanuel Barbee to give back to his community and to his people. Will Black America stand with him in fulfilling Dr. King’s dream to end poverty and structural inequality? Will Black America help Emmanuel unify the hood on a national level? Will Black America finally standing up against the power that be “Capitalism” which after all got it’s wealth from African slaves way before the  Industrial Revolution began?

All racial groups are welcome to join his organization just as long as they accept the principles behind his organization no exceptions. His organization is for reasonable brothers, sisters, and others. They pick up where The Civil Rights Movement left off which was “The Poor People’s March” His organization is open to Christians, Muslims, and Secular people. No Criminals, No Active Gang Members, and No Half Steppers allowed.
