Nigerian writer Chinua Achebe criticized Heart of Darkness and called Conrad "a bloody racist" and the novella "an offensive and totally deplorable book" that de-humanized Africans. Specifically, Achebe argued that Conrad, ’blinkered...with xenophobia,’ incorrectly depicted Africa as the antithesis to Europe, and thus to civilization.
