Beyond The Chinese Connection

University Press of Mississippi

This chapter uses Lee’s film Enter the Dragon (1973) to explore the theme of interethnic male friendship between African American and Chinese men in Frank Chin’s novel, Gunga Din Highway, and two films released since 2000, Rush Hour 2 and Unleashed. Enter the Dragon engages an Afro-Chinese male friendship within the context of an international martial arts tournament in Hong Kong, providing a transnational backdrop that brings ethnic identity and national association into sharp relief.

Keywords:   Bruce Lee, Enter the Dragon, African American men, Chinese men, Frank Chin, Gunga Din Highway, Rush Hour 2, Unleashed, friendship, ethnic identity
