No Good Deed [or work] goes unnoticed by GOD, and His repayment is great. No Good work [or deed] goes un-rewarded, un thanked, unpaid, un appreciated, or ignored. GOD has His Way of helping when you least expect it or when you are almost totally down to your last quarter. He will be ever merciful and helpful to those working towards real freedom, real justice, real lasting peace and more positive communications between the races, more money splashed around for the poor, the homeless and the needy, more niceness, kindness and more giving when you yourself need a few Denarius and don't want to give, but do so anyway. He remembers. He is NOT santa. He is God. He is available all year round. Not just at Christmas. You don't have to go to church to see Him. He is in your home and in your mirror.  He is in your heart in the formation of kindness, good will, LOVe, generosity & Mercy. So don't worry about being punished for good deeds and good work. Don't use that as an excuse to be greedy, uncaring & wicked. Do the correct things, be yourself, be ethical and remember your parents, grandparents and children at Christmas and always. If you need some direction as to how to be ore Loving and less greedy, read ``Ethical Ambition,'' By Derrick Bell. This is what I did. GOD Bless You.

A Real, Authentic Black Man—An Indigenous Black Man…


Your sandals are like the ones Jesus Christ wore…
Your hair is locked, or perfectly braided by your woman or your man…
Your hands are worn from the heat and toil of working in the fields…
Your brow is wet with the honest result of toil…
Your ancestors sprang from the Nile Valley as they overlooked the Root Dynasty, the Empire of Ancient Africa they had created…
You are now ALL OVER THE WORLD..
From Egypt to Chad to Gibbon to Atlanta to Kenya to Philadelphia…
You are there and have seen it all…
You are a Christ Child…a MASTER of men…
A man who owns time itself… But you don’t Lord over other men and women…
You are the Indigenous one—not the invader…
You are the essence of love And Respect for humanity…
Your rugged feet walked through Nazareth and Bethlehem
Your ancestor’s eyes were cast into the sky to create the SUN And the STARS…
You are an ancient African man and
As you walk through the City of New York, the perfect mix of
The Ancient and the Contemporary, few Europeans understand the dimensions of your existence among them…
Frankly, you are superior…
You have come from dirt and dust to once again rule the world…
You are a champion of fairness, justice and righteousness among men who plunder and hate….
You are an African Emperor in a pin striped suit

You are NOT, allowed to be the hero and romantic lead because the mere vision of you shapes thought, time and response ….

But let’s be clear, if you are not a large part of the shaping of the New World, there will be NO NEW WORLD…

Letter to Mr. Baltimore Private....

September 11th, 2014 Thursday

To: Mr. Charlie Baltimore

Anti-Violence Partnership of Philadelphia

2000 Hamilton Street, Suite 304

Philadelphia, Common Wealth of Pennsylvania 19130-3814

From: Brother Tracy Gibson

213 South 49th Street

Philadelphia, Commonwealth of Pennsylvania 19139

1 (215) 921-2065

Dear Mr. Baltimore:

I hope and pray this letter finds you in the best of good health and good spirits.  I was referred to you by a Mr. Max Carlson of the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency [Victims Compensation Assistance Program] of Philadelphia. I am on disability for depression with schizophrenic features, but have been doing quite well and haven’t been hospitalized for these problems in over 12 years.  I am looking to find a part time job that will be both challenging and rewarding financially and in regard to my helping the Black community and the Community at large.  I have written dozens of letters to advocate for the betterment of the City of Philadelphia’s education system and the health of our People here.  Recently a letter I wrote was instrumental in helping CVS Pharmacy find the courage to take cigarettes off the shelves of their stores.  Now they specialize in helping people to stop smoking!!  This was a clear victory for me as an individual community organizer and for people in the Commonwealth  of Pennsylvania who wish to stop smoking, but haven’t been able to find a route to accomplish this task.  I also take on a number of other issues in my work, but have been unable to get funding to really work as consistently and effectively as I would like. Finding part-time work would sure help. My resume speaks for itself, but there are a few things that I find especially rewarding that I have done in recent years. One is to write the oil companies to advocate for youths getting summer jobs cleaning the gas stations, and doing minor repairs on cars.  This would cut back significantly on inner-city crime and keep our young people occupied by doing something constructive they would get paid for. I have also advocated for Black youths to work legally selling videos in the community instead of bootleg videos.  This would cut back on the amount of money the major and minor studios are losing from the bootleg market and provide legitimate jobs for youth as well. The crisis in the Middle East is a real and authentic problem that has been troublesome for decades. I have worked on this, but have not been able to get my planned organization funded properly, as yet.  The part-time work would help me get some of these items up and running faster.  To say we are in crisis as a nation on these issues: the crisis in the middle east and youth unemployment is an understatement. I think you can understand my level of frustration and my need for the paid work.

Peace and Blessings,

Brother Tracy Gibson

Really Brand New Resume from Brother Tracy Gibson

** Resume Philosophy: I feel, with the job market flooded the way it is, I might as well tell my full story and try to get a JOB that way, as opposed to only give a brief sketch of myself in my resume, the way the job professionals want one to do. This way, if there is something a possible employer doesn't like He or She can just pass me by instead of wasting his or her time and mine with an interview. Also: the professional JOB finders say to NEVER, EVER let a potential employer know about your ethnic background. I find this silly and ridiculous. Any potential employer who will NOT respect me as a Black man doesn't deserve to even consider getting me as an employee.

I enjoyed a significant honor in helping care for my elderly Mother, Mrs. Jessie M. Gibson, before she left this place of existence on June 5th, 2006. It took a great deal of coordination, work, dedication, Love, endurance, and--most of all--courage to interact positively with a sometimes hostile Health Care System on behalf of my aging Mother. I learned a great deal through this process. My Mother was a fantastic lady who believed strongly in education and motivating Black students to do their best and helping the less fortunate [traits I have taken up through my corporation]. My Mother taught me many life lessons, including NOT to hold grudges against people, and to Love people even when they are wrong or have different ideas and opinions than I do. I also learned that to be human is to honor human beings, no matter what colour they are or what religion they are. Recently I helped tend to my Father's Health Care needs [ Mr. Charles Saint Clair Gibson ] who was 85 when he passed away while on Hospice Care at home on July 10th, 2012. Dad helped me to care about people's basic needs while still being frugal and responsible. He was a dedicated and concerned Landlord for most of his life.

I helped chair meetings; facilitate meetings; develop meeting topics; and host meetings in my home for over seven years. I also helped found Adodi Philadelphia Inc., and was a leading core member for this support group and support system for Same Gender Loving Black Men.

Possible Speaking Topics: 1) Why Black America Will soon come around to Supporting Gay and Lesbian Marriage; 2) A Healthy Environment; 3) Working in North America; 4) Homophobia in the Black Community and How and When to Stand Up To It...
We are expecting to publish five books by Early February of 2015. The first book is a book of poetry that is derived from the anger and frustration many Black men righteously feel about being left out of the economic development and financial advancement taking place for a ``select few'' in our country instead of ALL the people. The book of poetry is entitled: ``Let the Children Gather: A Fantasy World of Real Life Poems,'' and features over 100 original poems written by Brother Tracy Gibson. We are hoping they will also spark interests among Black youth, both male and female, to go forward and read more books that are of great value and significance for us as Black and sometimes oppressed people. The second book is entitled: ``Writing in Wet Cement: A Grass-Roots Criteria for Liberation'' This book is dedicated to the forward motion of Black youth especially, but includes many stories and anecdotes [intertwined with my own life's story] that much of the Progressive Community of social activists, environmentalists, Peace Activists and humanitarians will find interesting and inspiring. Many Black and Latin youth especially will also find it enjoyable to read and find its pages helpful for instilling positive, progressive, proactive social values, education and knowledge. Law-abiding behavior and good solid ethical behavior among the youth who read it will also be instilled. We plan for this book to help instill the value of good literature among Black and Latin youth--especially males, but females, and help keep them out of trouble with the law.  ``Writing in Wet Cement,’’  with a lesson plan approved for schools, will help transform our youth into good, hard-working, positive-value oriented, responsible, reliable and community-centered men and women.  The book will obviously need the help of positive intervention by responsible parents, teachers, other leaders in the community concerned about students and youth, grandparents and other student guardians. We hope our books will help our youth be of greater value and an asset to our community instead of a detriment.
I have a deep concern for the community in which I live and I want to see people of ALL races who have been left out of the financial process become included in the process towards positive development, a clean environment, sustainability and economic and social equality, justice, freedom and democracy. I have written literally hundreds of letters to Civic Leaders, Community Leaders, Political Leaders, entertainers, business People, clergy, government officials, and so forth, in an effort to promote the issues of youth and adults throughout the world [but especially in the Philadelphia area]; the left out and the economically disenfranchised; and those who might not be able to advocate for themselves. Groups I have advocated for include [But are NOT limited to]: The poor or economically disenfranchised; Same Gender Loving people of Color; Black, Latin and other disenfranchised people and youth; the Elderly; Women and Muslim women of color; Black youth; and people of ALL races who have been left out of economic processes toward political and economic freedom, hope and equality..
I was diagnosed as a person with bipolar illness in 1982 / 1983 and managed to work and or go to school for about 15 years after that before I went on disability. I had many up and down points and was hospitalized for nervous upsets. I haven't been hospitalized for the last 14 years, and although I'm on disability, I have worked hard on writing my own books; reading and researching numerous issues; starting a corporation dedicated to the advancement and reconstruction of Black Youth; and caring for elderly parents. I want to get back in the workforce and I would like to do so, most of all, as a consultant, or as the leader of my own corporation. I am a hard worker, a dedicated worker and an honest person. I hope you will take me on as a consultant. YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED.
I traveled to Cuba, South Africa, Canada, Porto Rico and various points within the United States such as Los Angeles; San Francisco; Washington, D.C.; Denver and Aspen Colorado; Columbus, Dayton and Cleveland, Ohio; Miami, Florida; and New York City [mostly Manhattan and Brooklyn] in my continuing journey to learn and grow as a valued and gifted individual ready and willing to share my gifts with the world.

Getting Help!!!

By Brother Tracy Gibson
If you are depressed, angry beyond reason, upset, anxious, down, troubled, concerned or beat down politically or dealing with envy, wanting revenge, unable to forgive someone, or unable to cope with other stressful situations, emotions and feelings; or if you are experiencing stress over a divorce, the loss of a relationship, being unemployed for an extended time period, the loss of a loved-one, financial losses; or if you just feel your world is closing in on you; or if you can't cope with an addiction to prescription medicines, alcohol, tobacco, illegal street drugs, food, sex, pornography or anything else; or maybe you were beaten up, sexually abused, raped, robbed, molested or maybe you have lingering thoughts of an incident that is long, long past, but you can't seem to get past it; or you are unable to cope with other excessive behavioral problems you are having such as hoarding food or hoarding household items in your room or house, over eating, and acting out excessively sexually, excessive spending when you know you can't afford it right now; or if you are experiencing other behavioral, emotional, psychological and / or psychiatric problems; or maybe you just feel at the end of your rope, hopeless and that you have just given up on life and don't want to do anything to help yourself and are isolating yourself from others--maybe it is time for you to get help. [I want you to remember that getting help is the case of the disenfranchised and oppressed is more a statement about the failures of our society than a statement about any failure on your part. Getting help represents a problem and a serious miscalculation in judgement with our political, economic, judicial and social system [and that includes Capitalism and Socialism, and how we have been excluded from it than it is any mental or emotional problem that you as an individual are having.] I am sure if you had equal access to the institutions that construct our culture such as being included when they decide what school curriculum will be and being there and included fairly and equally when they decide what will be incorporated into what makes up entire spheres of learning and knowledge such as: Medicine, Anatomy, Math, Engineering, Science, Chemistry, Physics, Horticulture, Advanced Mathematics, Logic, Philosophy, Computer Science, Anthropology and the many other Technological Sciences, You would see that You don't have a mental problem, You have just been excluded. Look how Black, Latin, Asian, Women, Gay People, and Arab people and even East Indian People have been almost totally excluded from the Movie Industry for example. The Movie Industry has a very pervasive influence on how we see ourselves as human beings, but serious people of color have almost been totally excluded from getting their scripts considered and also excluded almost totally from the Green-Light process of approving what films get financed..... This is a crime that is coming back to haunt the West, but meanwhile we have to get through this time period we are going through. With such fair and equal inclusion You will find school, learning and knowledge much more easy to achieve and much more interesting. If you are having trouble adjusting to our society You can start by calling your Pastor, or you Mosque Minister, a trusted friend or family member or your general practitioner or Doctor and talking out the problem. He or she may well suggest you see a professional for treatment. It is nothing to be asham of. Believe me I know. What you are going through is a lot more common than you might think. I have been in therapy for over 35 years and have benefited from the experience tremendiouslyly!!! What you are doing by getting help is taking the adult tact, the right step and realizing you have a situation and / or a problem that needs more attention than usual... Stop worrying about it and seek help. You are saying ``I am worth it. And I need help.'' You are taking on the responsibility like an adult should and moving through whatever is hurting, stopping or crippling your growth as a decent human being. You are saying that you are deserving of help and that you will benefit from that help and move on positively with your life. You are not necessarily mentally ill, but even if you are, you are taking the right steps in getting help. Do it, get the help and watch your life open up like an incredible oasis or exotic flower as you take wing into the next stage of your life. I don't care if you are 89 or 13 . Get the help and feel better about yourself for doing so. You will find yourself benefiting greatly from the help such as therapy, proper medical treatment which might include the intervention of psychotropic medicines; or you might find that your life has been closed off physically from others and all you need is to be around people who are thinking and doing positive things and to get some physical exercise and fresh air. Don't face this with fear, face it with strength and the joy at knowing you will get the help you need and be able to MOVE forward. We suggest you call some of the following numbers if you are in need of help: Women Organized Against Rape: The Crisis Network: The Colours Organization: ; The Delaware Valley Association of Black Psychologists-- 1-215-790-9059.....
