Everywhere you go everywhere you look there is always somebody different The American society focuses on that person or group of people They make them feel worthless and treated them like animals Imagine walking down the street and having people stare at you or call you Names or talk behind your back Imagine not knowing the time because nobody will tell you Why wont they tell you the time or spare you some change Because youre black actually because youre skin is a different color or religion All the characters we have read experience some from of racism none more then Othello People that are angry or upset say most racist comments in the play For example when Emilia found out that Othello had killed Desdemona she was extremely mad and she called Othello a Blacker devil this was the only time in the play that she had said anything racist about Othello The main characters that have racist attitudes are Iago Brabantio Roderigo and Emilia with the hatred of Othello as the basis for their racist actions and comments towards him Iago is the most racist character in the book as he has it in for Othello right from the start What sparks off Imagos hate towards him is the fact that when Othello chose his lieutenant it was Cassio who was chosen instead of Iago What made Iago angry was the fact that Cassio had no experience in war when he did and Cassio was chosen instead of him Iago does not say anything racist to Othellos face but he has a lot to say against him behind his back He schemes to destroy Othello and anything in his way including Cassio and Desdemona The first time we hear one of his racist comments is when hes talking to Brabantio about Othello and Desdemona Iago uses racist comments all the way through
