(My Gift To Chicago)

I would like to wish everyone on my friends list and those in my social groups a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Once president elect Donald Trump begin cutting entitlement programs from the middle class, working class, and so called underclass maybe then Black America will embrace my vision and work with me in putting my ideas into action. Urban violence is a moral issue and I refuse to just sit back and watch my people being slaughtered in the streets of Chicago. I want everyone in America to know my story and I encourage those of you who are concerned about my cause (Help Stop The Genocide In American Ghettos) by purchasing my revised book “The Solution For Black America: Reclaiming, Rebuilding, And Restoring The Urban Ghettos In America” second edition.The proceeds will go towards me hiring qualified people to assist me with the daily operations of my Christian organization the Grass Roots Community Activist Institute.

Mission

The Grass Roots Community Activist Institute aspires to the healing mission of Christ on both the Westside and Southside of Chicago. The mission calls us to care for the sick and promote the health of the residents in the community while witnessing the Christian values of respect, dignity, caring and compassion for all persons. GRCAI will show a special sensitivity to the culture of the people we serve and the special needs of the poor and powerless.
