California has the 5th highest GDP in the world, and trillions of dollars line the pockets of the highest concentration of billionaires in the US.
At the same time, there are tens of thousands of African and Mexican people living in tents, under tarps and overpasses.

But these conditions can change rapidly with resources invested in programs in the hands of the African community. Right now in St. Louis, the Uhuru Movement is creating the basis for an independent African economy by building the Black Power Blueprint - https://www.facebook.com/BlackPowerBlueprint/

We demand that the city government immediately move to end the homeless crisis in our city by making all abandoned and vacant homes available to the homeless population.

The Uhuru Movement has a long history of relentless struggle against homelessness here in Oakland.The Uhuru Movement waged a campaign for land reform and African community control of housing, putting land reform and housing justice - Measure O, on the ballot in 1984.

Find out how you can participate in making real change and achieve housing justice in the Bay area NOW!

Having Family in America's Midwest can yield, lets say, "different perspectives" on homelessness than what seems to be currency here in California, The Home of Bountiful Sun, free food, free medical care, free lodging during inclement weather and the like. According to Family back there, they say, "Come back to where you escaped the cold and snow, there are Help Wanted signs all over the place, carpenters, grocery stores and electricians can't find enough help to see to all of the rehab business of homes that sell (e.g., a picture sent to me by my brother) for $105,000 in Inkster Michigan. COME BACK HOMES sons!!!!!!" Perspective, poor David can't live in Cliffside or Woodside, either. Tsk, huh
