The theme of racism is reflected in the story. Give examples

Question: The theme of racism is reflected in the story. Give examples.

Answer: The theme of racism is reflected in the story in several ways: Because of Sadao’s father’s stress on ‘purity of race’ and traditionalism, Sadao didn’t start a relationship with Hana until he was sure that she “had been pure in her race”. Yumi refused to touch the American or wash him before the operation. Moreover, when he left, she “cleaned the guest room thoroughly … to get the white man smell out of it.” Sadao has strong feelings against white people. Both Sadao and Hana felt that Americans were racists.
