In his play, Shakespeare's main protagonist is a dark-colored man - Othello, is a noble man just to suit the convention that considered people of noble blood the only real proper heroes for the stage or even to eliminate disparity of rank as a contributing element in the tragedy. The play shows how dark-colored people are marginalized, racism at its maximum, discriminated. When reading the play, we note that racism is obvious and ever present among those character types. In this way, we'd say that Othello's identification is designed by the gaze of the white personal alternatively than by the queer zoom lens. Though the idea of queer theory is present in the play, yet it is minimal as the issues of racism, prejudice all together overcome the concept of queer theory.
