Macon, GA -- In the wake of an explosion of crime, poverty and the change in morals among youth, specifically in the Black community, Attorney Roy Miller and a team of social activists have organized the second annual March Back to God on January 21st. "I am tired of our youth dying. If we make the effort, God will make the miracle," he said.

The group is therefore calling on organizations across the country to incorporate a March Back to God walk through visually poor and neglected communities on the Martin Luther King Jr. Day. "Only God heals wounds and youth need to know that," Miller, said. His group hopes the March Back to God will spark a national movement and visually highlight the long-time misuse of Federal grants earmarked for the poorest areas. "Poverty is a friend of Crime," Miller stated.

Miller, a college professor, claims that crime and poverty are incentives for increasing the budgets of cities and counties across our country. "These municipalities have realized that with higher crime and poverty rates they can get more Federal money."

His group is calling on organizations that suspect such misuse of federal grants to request that the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development investigate. "Those seeking such investigation should collect the signatures of enough supporters on a petition to show that the matter is a public issue and not a personal one."

Miller explained that many government agencies are authorized to investigate matters after a certain number of complaints are received or when a pattern of practice is identified.
"Numbers matter. We must work to provide a fertile garden for all youth," said Miller, best known for his success in having the n-word deleted from Funk and Wagnall's dictionary in 1994. "When I fought and succeeded it was for the respect of little children that could not fight. I love all races and I fight to make a difference."
