(GRCAI vs. The Black Church)

In my revised book chapter three I discuss my experience with religious people from the Black Church. They play favoritism according to how much money a person gives to the church and those who are gifted with singing. When I try to gain support for my vision they brush it off as non-sense how can they call themselves people of faith if they don’t receive the vision I explain to them? They give career politicians a platform during local elections but refuse to allow me to past out my book flier after church services what is wrong with this picture?

The black church used to be the back bone of the black community. The black church use to speak out against the social ills in our society which gave rise to the Civil Rights Movement. After the Civil Rights era African Americans have divided themselves based on social class, religion, and political affiliation.
Today the biggest threat to young black boys and young black girls are urban terrorist who are killing more of our youth than the Klan. Nowadays the Black Church is focus more on becoming a mega church then focusing on what Jesus told us in his word to focus on the lease of these in society.

Matthew 25:35-40 for I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in; I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me. “Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink? When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You? Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’ And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’

In contrast, no man nor woman of Earth will change the vision my creator has given me. I will not lower the standards my creator has instructed me to do within my business. Through my future Christian organization the Grass Roots community Activist Institute we will portray an authentic form of Christianity. GRCAI is a Christian socialist organization. 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 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 Luke4:18-19.

The mission of the Grass Roots Community Activist Institute is to spread the love of Jesus Christ to individuals, families and communities through a wholistic approach rooted in our fundamental understanding of human beings as created in the image of God. As well as meet the need of the community we will serve. Those who will join my management team 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.

I will also build bridges or alliances with Progressive African Americans, African Immigrants, Afro-Brazilians, Afro-Caribbean, Non-black sympathizers as well as all Christian denominations, I extend a hand of friendship with moderate Muslims, and secular people who are interested in working with me in turning my vision into a reality. It’s my hope that GRCAI will become the Hub in the Midwest for emerging artists and upcoming black entrepreneurs.

Under our non-profit division will focus on our charitable foundation which will raise money for our homeless and our second chance ex-offenders program based on our budget and sponsorship. All of our funding will go directly to benefit the people we will serve. GRCAI will confront one of the most challenging battles in our society urban violence, substance abuse, poverty and high unemployment in our inner cities in America.

In contrast, under our for-profit division Business initiative (BI) will be a partnership of our private employment business opportunities to our members by ensuring fairness, equity and standards of excellence. BI will work to improve employment opportunities for our future employees, enter into the entertainment industry, manufacturing industry and the advertisement industry will ensure that a skilled workforce is created within the communities we will serve. Through GRCAI, skilled workers through our Christian business will help raise respect back to the African American community and it’s residents.

GRCAI will offer apprenticeship programs to individuals seeking information about careers in the trade industry. Apprenticeship programs have provided employment opportunities to get classroom instruction and on the job PAID internship without the burden of large student loans. Our students will learn and have access to the state of the art technology in the trades and beyond. Our films and stage plays will help fund our apprenticeship programs and services. The community pledge will be a sign of commitment from our members, students, staff and community residents is at the heart of this organization based on what I have written in my book. My pledge is only to our members and I will work with them and their families for life as long as they remain members. We will provide well-trained employees and proficient skilled workforce for the city of Chicago.

GRCAI is also about building a strong unified global community and providing basic resources to families that want to utilize our programs and services. Our commitment is to strengthen the black family and provide quality programs and services, which will help improve the lives of our members no matter their gender, age, race, or religion. My goal is to move my virtual Christian organization from behind a computer starting in the city of Chicago.

The only thing which is preventing me from starting my Christian organization 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 blogtalkradio show, and now through my revised book “The Solution For Black America: Reclaiming, Rebuilding, And Restoring The Urban Ghettos In America” second edition about my 21st century plan to eradicate urban violence while at the same time meet the social needs of the communities and families we will serve. I had my publisher at Createspace to lower my revised book from $25.00 to $15.00 in order for my supporters to afford my book within their budget. I everyone in America to know my story and the plan my creator has given me to do to improve our inner cities in America as well as in the slums of Africa.

GRCAI is membership based and private in order for me to weed out people who don’t care about our inner-city youth, their families, or the black community. 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. GRCAI is open to all ordinary law-abiding citizens, all racial groups, and undiscovered artist. This is my contribution back to my community, society and throughout the African Diaspora.
