Johnny Everyman. “Everybody’s heard of him...and you may have met him–this man of many lands and peoples, who has traveled to the far corners of the Earth helping men understand what the other fellow thinks and feels. But just in case you haven’t encountered that dynamic battler against the primitive forces of ignorance, here’s your chance to meet Johnny Everyman.” He is famous for “always turning up where there’s trouble.” He dedicates himself to improving ethnic harmony and “furthering the understanding between peoples,” which specifically includes the fight against anti-African-American and anti-Chinese racism. He appears in stories with titles like “The Dragon Dies in India,” “George Tanaka, American,” and “All Men Are Brothers.”
