Compare and Contrast - Stereotypes in Shakespeare's Merchant of Venice and Othello - In both of Shakespeare’s plays, "Othello" and "The Merchant of Venice", there are several instances in which the non-white and non-Christian characters are marginalized and are often the victims of prejudice and outright racism.
