Religion and Racial Discrimination in
Go Tell It On The Mountain
[date]Go Tell It On The Mountain (2016) is a depiction of how people treat religion as convenient to them. The narrative shows how we turn to our religious gods and beliefs when we cannot find answers. Moreover, it implies racial discrimination that manifests through the hostility of characters to each other. Racial discrimination is not an explicit part of the narrative but an element that builds other characters.
Two of the characters, the siblings Gabriel and Florence, demonstrate the discrimination happening in the family. The later part of the story reveals that the siblings' parents were slaves to rich families. It was the reason they could no longer meet their other siblings because they got separated at a young age. Garbiel'sexperience of slavery manifests in how he treats his stepson, John.

His actions and attitude may root from the emotional trauma he has been carrying since they were kids. Gabriel must not want John to fail n life and become a slave. However, he shows it in a more hostile way. On the other hand, Florence has always felt discriminated again
