A comparison of these two stories which shows how the authors Athol Fugard and Chinua Achebe achieved their subjective variations on the theme of human oppression.

From the Paper:

"The theme in Master Harold is also the oppression of human beings by discrimination, but in this story, the oppression is racial. Sam, a black man, has been a major male figure in the life of young, white Hally. Hally and Sam were very close during Hally's childhood, but he did not consider the older man to be his equal. Sam cannot sit on the same park bench with the boy because he is black. But during the course of the play, we see Hally pull rank on Sam and put aside their equality because Harold is white and Sam is not. "
