Black, Chinese Religious To Meet On Violence

By Vivian Po, New America Media

SAN FRANCISCO - Chinese and African-American religious leaders are organizing a public meeting at St. Mary's Cathedral on Nov. 3 to address continuing tensions between their communities, Iris Zheng reportsfor the Sing Tao Daily. Tensions flared up after several attacks on Chinese residents by black teenagers in Bayview Hunters Point earlier this year.
Rev. Norman Fong, a longtime advocate for the Chinese community, and Rev. Amos Brown, a powerful religious leader in the black community, met last week to plan the upcoming community forum. They were joined by State Board of Education member James Fang and Lynette Sweet, candidate for supervisor in San Francisco's District 10.

Fong said he hoped that and other gatherings would help unite different ethnic groups in the neighborhood, and encouraged members of both communities to join in.

Sweet said the meeting was also an opportunity for reconciliation for African Americans, many of whom were deeply hurt by a series of rallies against black violence held by Chinese residents.
