Racial conflicts issue happen between blacks and whites in west America in 19 century. The racial conflicts are found among the characters in the story. It leads to discrimination in law, economic and religion sector between blacks and whites. Based on the analysis I can conclude that the conflict happened between black and white people in the story because of different culture and agreement among the characters.
