Abstract

This paper aims at analyzing Toni Morrison's work Tar Baby.  We are going to apply the post-colonial theory to deal with the issues of racial identity.  Also, we are going to focus on the binary opposition as one of the main concern of post-colonialism to analyze the relationship between blacks and whites.  This analysis is based on the actions, thoughts, and behaviors of the major characters to deal with the problem of racism and identity.
