Hampton Roads, Virginia - Recently, in a Norfolk City Council meeting, Councilman Riddick made statements about Chinese restaurant owners that were incorrect. The Organization of Chinese Americans-Eastern Virginia Chapter responded to dispel these stereotypes and myths (see link below).
The OCA-Eastern Virginia Chapter will participate in a positive cross-community dialogue with leaders in the African-American community.
ABAHR fully supports OCA's position and this opportunity for a stronger business alliance across communities in Hampton Roads. ABAHR will be participating in this cross-cultural business exchange for the advancement of communities subjected to systemic, overt or clandestine racism in our society.
