US Congressional candidate Teddy Fikre, who is running to represent Virginia’s 8th CD, was the keynote speaker at the Black Employees Council’s Peace Rally. Teddy gave an impassioned speech about the need fully account for the legacy of slavery and racism in order to move towards a path of healing for America.
However, unlike too many politicians who keep ripping the wounds of the past in order to enrich themselves and vilify “others” to perpetuate the status quo while doing nothing about the root causes of of social inequalities, Teddy talks about the urgent need to tackle racism through the prism of unity.
