    Hello! I need some help with Othello. Why is it that he is so obsessed with Desdemona's skin colour? Is it something to do with his repressed racism?

    I cant remember that he was. He's a Moor and looked down upon so he has an inferiority complex. the only reason the venetians want him is for his military skills so he is tolerated.He would like to think the best of people, but once Iago poisons his mind then he starts to resent her purity and questions her motives. He feels betrayed as well.
