  queston;1 The Theme of Oherness and Racism in Ohello. Answer: In his pos-colonial conex i is impossible o read Shakespeare’s Ohello wihou considering he issues of race, color and hegemonic ideologies as hey are presened in he play. As we go hrough he play we see a complex relaton beween a black man, a whie woman and he sae. The crime commied by Ohello can also be judged as a crime of he ‘pressure group’. Bu in order o undersand he racial issues we  should ,a rs, consider he Elizabehan aude o he black people.Wha was he Elizabehan aude o Muslims and blacks?There was a good deal of animosiy beween he Muslims and Christans in Europe during Shakespeare’s tmes.Muslims were par of a group ha had invaded many lands and hreaened Europe wih he same. They had sreched heir conrol across he souhern end of he Medierranean Sea and crossed ino Spain wih heir sighs se on conques.

Berbers were  Norh African natves who evenually acceped Arab cusoms and Islam aer Arabs invaded Norh Africa in he Sevenh Cenury A.D. The erm has been used o refer in general o Muslims of Norh Africa and o Muslim conquerors of Spain. The word Moor derives from a Latn word,Mauri, used o name he residens of he ancien Roman province of Mauriania in Norh Africa. To refer oOhello as a “black Moor” is no o commi a redundancy, for here are whie Moors as well as black Moors, he laer mosly of Sudanese srcin. Ohello inroduces an uprigh and
