There are many racial components in this novel that are easy to point out. These take place in the American South and in Africa. It starts with the way that each of the black women and men are treated at the start of the book. The main character's real dad was a successful shop owner who was black. This guy was hanged for a motive that is known only as him being a successful black man.

"He just climb on top of me and do his business" says Celie. As if the women are there just to open her legs and let the man do what he would like to do. The authentic first theme of feminism is the act of Nettie to not give in and let Mr.__ have his way with her. In this act it showed him that he was not likely to be able to take from a woman. That's a change because he had always gotten what he wanted because Celie was just too scared to stand up to him. As the story moves along Sophia is...
