    Bai Ye writes, “Books are the best transmitter of human civilizations . . .”

    Professor Simon Xu-hui Shen of the Chinese University of Hong Kong reports research revealing that the Chinese’s “almost over-riding perception of Africans” is “that they are economically and spiritually poor” and “inferior to themselves in many ways.”

    A year or two back I spent some time searching the Internet for Chinese translations of novels by African authors. I found works by just three authors: J. M. Coetzee (most of his work, Zhejiang Arts Publishing House), Nadine Gordimer (Get A Life and My Son’s Story, People’s Literature Publishing House) and Chinua Achebe (Things Fall Apart and A Man of the People, Chongqing Publishing House).

    That led me to wonder about what to make of a poem entitled I Have Come Home reported to have been written by Premier Wen Jiabao during a visit to Uganda.

    Indeed, I have come home!
    Over mountains and across the ocean
    my brothers on the African land.
    Overwhelmed by flowers, flags and resounding drums,
    A brotherly love deeper than the sea
    Fifty years of journey sharing weal and woe
    Brings Chinese and African hearts closer and ever so.

    If you read Henry Kissinger’s book “China” you will see that the Chinese have historically felt that way about everyone.
