(Emmanuel Barbee Trying To Bring Christian Socialism To Urban America )

For ten years I have been doing my best at reaching out to reasonable brothers, sisters, and others on Facebook.  I have joined 4,316 groups in order to network and share my vision to improve Urban America starting in Chicago.  Before I joined Facebook I was already on 200 plus social networks creating virtual communities/online groups and trying to recruit others to join my cause Help Stop The Genocide In American Ghettos.  I turned to the internet back in 1991 due to the fact I was unable to reach street people whom I use to work with independently from my real job.  I lacked support from my former Alderman, State Representative, and established black organizations in my city.  I also lack support from the black churches in my former community.  Twenty two years later I am on 300 social networks and I correspond with 125,000 people worldwide. I assist others who have accepted my hand of friendship with finding college scholarships/grants, nonprofit grants/small business grants; housing; legal services and employment on a national level all for free. but I only have three people actually working with me on my advisory board this is unacceptable Black America.

I wrote my revised book “The Solution For Black America: Reclaiming, Rebuilding, And Restoring The Urban Ghettos In America” Second Edition. This book is an auto-biography about my experience growing up in the inner city of Chicago. I wrote this book for three reasons: one reason is to raise awareness about the genocide which is taken place within our inner cities in America.  Another reason why I wrote my book is to promote my organization the Grass Roots Community Activist Movement.  GRCAM will be a private for profit service based business. It will have three main components: a social service component, a spiritual component, and a political component. Our focus will be to bring goods and services to the low income African American communities and working directly with single black mothers, single black fathers, and low income two parent families within the communities and cities we will serve.  Our agenda is to end gun violence, poverty, structural inequality, and police brutality within the communities and cities we will serve if given a chance.  Finally, I wrote my book in order to generate capital/seed money to offer incentives to thirty talented people within the state of Illinois or beyond who have read my book and agree with what I am trying to do, for those individuals to contact me and speak with me. I want those persons to come to Chicago and work with me directly in helping me start my organization. I want to make Chicago a model first before we expand to 25 other cities within 25 states. Once we’re established in 25 states I plans on expanding my organization abroad to Africa, Brazil, and the Caribbean Islands and assist people who want and need our services.

I have something no one else has in America the answer to end urban violence in America if given a chance. My organization is not another copy cat type of business it’s based on my personal life experience and also my experience with my creator.  No one in the United States knows GRCAM better than I.  What I have experience online is that a majority of people on them are only here for playing childish games. Another group online is so Americanized that they only focus on themselves and their cliques and finally a small percent of people I have ran across online are selling legitimate products and those with a true calling are witnessing to the lost about Jesus Christ.   I came across two religious women with spiritual titles a Pastor and a Reverend who suggested to me that in order for me to start my business/organization I would need a business loan/Caesar’s money. I replied to them that on Facebook and Google Plus alone I have 7,000 plus people if they would all just work with me by purchasing my book and sharing my book information with their family, friends, places of worship, and at their local community center then I could start my business next week without having to apply for a business loan. But our people prefer to sit back and complain about “the white man” not investing in our urban communities.  Dr. King and Malcolm X became martyrs for black liberation of our people but just look at our racial group today so divided and the lack of concerned about our youth who are trapped in American Ghettos.  I refuse to go into debt by taking out a business loan when in fact I am unable to find 30 people in my city willing to join my cause (Help Stop The Genocide In American Ghettos).

What I have to offer our racial group and our society would benefit America and the world if only given a chance.  Twenty two years of rejection by established black organizations has not change my faith one but for no black leader in America has a plan that will end gun violence, poverty, and structural inequality yet I am taking as a joke. Since 2001, over 4,000 people has been killed in my city due to urban violence and what frustrates me the most is when other African Americans tell me that they are not interested in my cause.  I lack the manpower and the capital all I have is my story and I challenge 30 people who are brave enough and smart enough for those persons to make themselves known to me and come to Chicago and work with me directly in getting this organization up and running. Now that’s real faith!

Why do I consider myself a Christian Socialist?  It was bad enough that man lost his connection with God in the garden of Eden due to Adam and Eve disobedience. Now here comes alone a man by the name of Caesar Augustus who imposed taxes throughout the world. Read the original King James Version in the book of Luke 2:1 for more details.  Caesar Augustus was a dictator who brought prosperity to the Roman empire by imposing his will on others. It’s many provinces or colonies were governed with a heavy hand. In Israel, the Jews were allowed to maintain their religion and culture. Caesar Augustus was essentially the figurehead who held power over many aspects of Jewish daily life. Caesar Augustus worshiped the pagan Roman gods, but then allowed himself to be worshiped as a living god. The Roman government he set up in Israel was brutal in enforcing it’s laws. The Romans used crucifixion to terrorize their subjects.  Caesar Augustus is the father of capitalism. Today the financial elites control food prices, medical cost, taxes, and they own the banks.  I am a Christian Socialist. 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. I am also a social entrepreneur. A social entrepreneur are people who tries to solve social, cultural, and environmental issues. Some of my Christian friends ask me why do I include secular people on my friends list? I explain to them that we as Christians should focus on what we stand for: love, compassion, social justice, and liberation theology. Jesus 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 Luke 4:18-19. As soon as my organization is established in 25 cities within 25 states we will create our own currency known as e-money within the business. It will have on it “We Reject Caesar Jesus Is Lord” and with our currency you don’t have to pay taxes because it’s within our own business. Yes we will have to pay taxes on our private property but we will also create our own laws just like the Catholics.  I will be only responsible for those under my leadership for people have free will and we will not impose our will on society our clients and members will all vote on issues within our community but we will create laws that will be compatible with the dominate culture as stated in my book.

Heavenly Father, I come before you as humble as I know how thank you for being my creator! Forgive my short comings wash me & make me whole with your precious blood in Jesus name. Help me to be a light for every lost person who enters my life. Help me to be a godly leader of GRCAM. Send me god fearing laborers who will help me run this business. Build us up to be great leaders for your business GRCAM.
Give me discernment on who to allow in and who to keep out of GRCAM.  Bring the people who want and need our services. Bring us investors, philanthropist, supplies, suppliers and all we need to  get this business started. Keep your covering and hedge of protection around us slay our enemies naysayers, career politicians, fake church people, and anyone who come against us which serve other gods and mind sets that are full of negativity. Fill GRCAM with the spirit of harmony, peace, love, unity, respect, sharing, giving, compassion.  Allow GRCAM to become the best African American business in the United States in Jesus name.

John 19:12-15 And from thenceforth Pilate sought to release him: but the Jews cried out, saying, If thou let this man go, thou art not Caesar’s friend: whosoever maketh himself a king speaketh against Caesar.
When Pilate therefore heard that saying, he brought Jesus forth, and sat down in the judgment seat in a place that is called the Pavement, but in the Hebrew, Gabbatha. And it was the preparation of the passover, and about the sixth hour: and he saith unto the Jews, Behold your King! But they cried out, Away with him, away with him, crucify him. Pilate saith unto them, Shall I crucify your King? The chief priests answered, We have no king but Caesar.

Luke 23:2 And they began to accuse him, saying, We found this fellow perverting the nation, and forbidding to give tribute to Caesar, saying that he himself is Christ a King.

Mark 12:14-17 And when they were come, they say unto him, Master, we know that thou art true, and carest for no man: for thou regardest not the person of men, but teachest the way of God in truth: Is it lawful to give tribute to Caesar, or not? Shall we give, or shall we not give? But he, knowing their hypocrisy, said unto them, Why tempt ye me? bring me a penny, that I may see it. And they brought it. And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription? And they said unto him, Caesar’s. And Jesus answering said unto them, Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s. And they marvelled at him.
