Subject: A Need For Men and Women of God in Politics!
Dear Preachers and Those in Ministry:
I need some bold preachers to go with me into the lion’s den!
I am a veteran African American Republican who in 1979, God sent into the Republican Party to bring about change and to bring down the walls of prejudice and call the party back to the place of its original birth as the Party of Lincoln.
This has not been an easy battle. I have shared those experiences in the book I wrote, Black Eyes Shut – White Lips Sealed (victorysongcollectionspublications.com). Yet I have stood against all odds, and now it is time to take it to the next level.
What I have seen is that the racism, mean spiritedness and the foolishness that is within the Republican Party is mostly at the top. Those who rise to the top, in most cases are the perpetrators. But when you go to the grass roots level, this almost is not there or it is in lesser degrees. Many at the grass roots level are those who believe what we believe, work with us and even share sweet fellowship. However, when you begin to get involved at the party level, this is where the demons of racism rear their heads and stand as gatekeepers.
Having taught American Government, State and Local Government and International Politics and Culture of Non-Western Countries as a political science professor at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, I understand government at all levels – even globally. I know what it will take to break the hold and to get pass the political gatekeepers. Sit-in and protests will do absolutely nothing! Even prayer alone will not suffice. But with the power of prayer, as well as the wisdom of God, we have to move into both parties and carve out a place for ourselves as Americans, if we want to share in America’s political power base. Yes, this means moving even into the Republican Party.
As the national chair for the Black Republican Women Organization, I began back in 1987 recruiting African American women into the GOP, who were not willing to be tokens, but who could retain their blackness.
Presently, I head the National Republican African American Caucus. It is a unique republican organization because it allows African Americans to be a part of a collective body that can and will bring about change. Our goal is 1.5 million by 2012, and 500,000 in 2010. You may ask why so many? It is because political strength is in numbers! In politics, believe it or not, it has very little to do with color. It has to do with numbers and the ability to write the check. If you can show you have a substantial number of people who can stand as a voting block, and have the ability to finance your own cause, then you become a significant player within the political landscape. This is the ONLY way that we gain and retain political power. This is how we as African Americans get to the table, have a voice and place ourselves in appointed and elected positions. This is how we stop some of the foolishness that is going on in politics.
As an African American Republican, I proudly voted for President Obama in the general election. But his ability to win was because he was able to get beyond the gatekeepers and become a political player within the Democratic Party. Now we have to do the same thing within the Republican Party!
Having said all of this, I need men and women of God who will join with me to fulfill this mandate, and will join the NRAAC and even begin local caucuses. I don’t want everyone! Because it is important to remain political players in both parties. We need to be in the Democratic and Republican parties. I just need a significant number of praying people, and those who are strong and can take a stand for what is right to come into the Republican fold, so that our voices are heard.
I ask you to go to the NRAAC website at www.nraacaucus.org and see what we are all about. Then pray about this and see if you are one of the ones who God is saying, “I call you to take a stand on the other side (the Republican Party), so that you can make a difference.”
Also see if perhaps God is calling you to serve in a leadership capacity. In November, we will be making new appointments of regional and state chairs, and advisory board and national board members. If you are interested, and decide to become a member, you may submit your name, bio/resume for consideration.
I look forward to those of you who are godly and truly believe in justice and compassionate, yet self-responsibility and responsible government, joining our ranks!
…And for those of you who already are Republicans, we welcome you to the family of African American Republicans.
Let’s ALL go forth, and make a positive difference regardless of which party we are in!
Feel free to e-mail me at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org, and to pass this e-mail on. Tennessee also has a state caucus at www.tnraacaucus.org. The websites for other states should be up by the end of October 2010. We welcome members from all states!
Look forward to hearing from you and even seeing you at the April 9th – 10th NRAAC Conference. Our theme: Setting the Republican Agenda to Include People of Color.
In His Service,
Dr. Jean Howard-Hill, Nat’l Chair
Please accept my invitation to add me as a friend and connect with 27,000+ black professionals that are supporting each other's businesses (churches are welcomed). It is a powerful group with lots of benefits and opportunity to connect with other powerful black professionals and their families all around the world. We officially launched the BBN in Atlanta, GA, August 29th. It was truly a historical event and the kick-off of our worldwide movement toward economic empowerment. "Marcus Garvey began this mission in the early 1900s when he united millions of Black people all over the world, and got everyone being, buying and building Black. With the great reach and power of the Internet, we aim to further his accomplishment."
This is one of the hottest, new websites on the Internet, called www.globalblackbusinessnetwork.com. Black people are uniting to network and support black businesses. It's really great. If you’re ready to be a part of a movement that will create wealth in our communities (that means you) I encourage you to click on the link, JOIN and list yourself (for FREE) for exposure and reach for your products and/or services. If you don’t have a business, you can come in as a consumer and be able to find and buy black products/services from our black businesses (join for FREE). Visit the site and check out the businesses where brothers and sistas are part of this GROWING movement to “Buy Black”. Please share this with other positive brothers and sistas.
Just dropping in to say hello and welcome. No matter what life and people throw your way to hinder or discourage you, keep moving forward to your goals and the next time you look up, they will be so far behind you, you won't even remember the trouble they caused. Stay lifted in Christ
Bless you Man of God, This is Prophet Christopher Burton from Atlanta Ga, just sending you and your wife Kingdom Greeting. I believe it not by happen stance we have connected.

Shalom, My Good Dear Brother! I Love You As My Wonderful HEBREW Brother! In Fact All So Call Black People Are The Hebrew People Of The Holy Bible Read(Genesis 14:13) Here We Fine Abraham Is A Hebrew; And If He Is Your Forefather What Are You?. When You Study The So Call Black People History And Hebrews History It Is The Same; The Names Was Just Change, You Can Make A List Of All The Names We Been Call And Answer To; You Have To Wake Up And Study The Truth About Our Real Name Of The Most High God "YHWH" Which Means YAHWEH; That Was Taking From Us As His People, We Where Cut Off By Yahweh Himself; (Read Gen 15:13, 1kings 9:6-9 Acts 7:6) Really Read And Study What I Am Saying Am Telling The Truth. He Is Wakeing You And I Up To Wake Up Our Love ONES!
Note: Now Yahweh Is Bring You And I Back Onto Himself, Thats Why His Name Is Being Talk About More And More And More! It Will Not Go Away, It Will Only Get Biger And Greater In The Thy Earth. I appreciate you giving me your time to touch on Biblical thoughts and then also to share with you some of my study and research. Moreover, I want to mentioned to you the type of books that would be a must have in considering to formulate your Biblical Library. Moreover, these are some of the books that would cause one to move from a comfort zone, to an intense Biblical High! Praise Yahweh! Now these are some of the books that are recommended:
1. Strong's Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible
2. King James Hebrew/Greek Key Word Study Bible
3. Inter perter Bible Dictionary(set of 5)
4. Vine's Complete Expository Dictionary of the Bible
5. Webster's Collegiate or Random House Dictionary
6. Synonym Finder by J.I. Rodale
7. Guinness Book of World Records, copyright 1985
8. Jerusalem Bible
As a Note: The Guinness Book of World Records talks about the letters "J' and "V" as being the newest letters added to English Alphabet, which is post Shakespearean 1630. So the letters "J" and "V" are only 379 years old. Also In The Hebrew /Greek There Is No Letter "J" Take These Bible Tools And Look And See; All "J"s Are a "Y" And All "V" Are a "W" In The Hebrew: Praise Yahweh! We Can Do All Things In Yahweh! It Is A Wonderful Time For Us To Be Here This Day! Note: Most Rev, Preachers, Evangelist, Churches, Artists, Ministries, Prophets, Prophetess, Men And Woman Who Say They Have Been Call By The Most High God Yahweh, Don't Even Call Him By His Real Holy Name; And On Top Of That, Those Who Know Want Even Tell Those Who Don't Know, His Real Holy Name Is YHWH Which Is YUD-HAY-WAW-HAY That Saids "YAHWEH". Look It Up: For Yourself "YHWH" And Then Tell The Truth, If You Are From The God Yahweh Of The Hebrews And Bible, Ex 5:3, Ex 9:1, Ex 9:13, When You Know The Truth Tell It And It Will Set You Free! Praise Yahweh! Great Are U! Note: Gather as Many Different Bibles and Dictionaries to HELP Build Your Library. Praise Yahweh!
Blessing! Your Brother Abraham
