Buddhism,Chinese Kong Fu,and American Racial Problems:Johnson's Creative Adoption of Eastern Culture in “China”

Chen Houliang;  
As a devoted Buddhist with proficient understanding of Chinese culture,the African American novelist Charles Johnson has spent a lifetime thinking about the spiritual implications of Buddhism for African Americans,hence to find ways to improve their life.From Johnson's perspective,the abject situation of contemporary black people results not only from political and historical reasons,but also from cultural and psychological reasons.Only revolutions synchronized on both sides can bring out true black liberation. With the story of Rudolph in China,Johnson tells howtraditional Eastern culture,represented by Buddhism,can help the black people overcome racial unconsciousness and hence to live peacefully and actively "here and now". After learning from the East,Rudolph was reborn with a newvision of black experience,which is illuminating for others.
