Would the novel of Othello be different if Othello was white?

There is no novel of Othello, actually. The famous Othello is a play by Shakespeare. Plays are not novels. If Othello was white, Othello wouldn't have been insecure, his relationship with Desdemona wouldn't be disapproved of and Iago might have hated Othello less. That is, of course assuming that Othello is white and so is everybody else. If Othello were white and everyone else was black, the story would be much the same because Othello's insecurity stems from his feeling of otherness, his feeling that he was different from everyone else. Othello has in fact been staged in this way, with a black cast and a white Othello. It has also been staged with actors playing Othello who are not black but are different from the rest in some other way.
