This research paper would like to examine Marlow‟s frailty as a narrator, his ethnocentricity and color consciousness and inability to comprehend inscrutable Africa that leads the author to support the colonizers against the Africans and how his approach is shared by Conrad as well. Conrad, in the colonial novel, Heart of Darkness has biasness for European colonialism, though the biasness is not so much conspicuous but ostensible, covertly and allusively maintained throughout. This study aims to focus upon Conrad‟s treatment of and race and racial conflicts. It also would like to explain the concept of race through applying the critical comments made by different critics and scholars.
