Racism is one of the most significant themes of the story. This issue has been highly skillfully handled by the author. Dave, a young African-American boy, works for Jim Hawkins. Jim is a white farm owner. As the story progresses, one day, Dave shoots a mule named Jenny. Through this incident, the author makes a point, “There were white and black standing in the crowd.” Dave had shouted at those white and black faces in the crowd. Shooting of the animal is not as important as it is to see that the people standing in the crowd become important for Dave. Dave feels powerful and equal with the gun. He wishes he could kill a man with a gun like that. He could kill anybody, black or white.
