General definition (in Buddhism)Source: WikiPedia: Buddhism
Buddhist Nation is the first organization to propagate Buddhism specifically among persons of black or African descent in the United States. While its primary goal has been to admit African Americans into the practice of Buddhism, the community encourages a diverse membership in regard to race. Buddhist Nation interprets its use of the term "Black Buddhist" as descriptive of Buddhism outside the social constructs of race, caste, gender and nationality.
