The primary theme is that of how colonization affects the peoples being colonized. For instance, their religious practices and even sports become subordinate to those of the colonizers--one reason colonizers are seen as oppressors. In the end result, after passing through the education system and moral value teaching systems of the colonizer, Lovelace contends, the colonized people have a deeply instilled perception of their own worthlessness and insignificance.
