a) Well, one reason is that it was a common European perception at the time. Much like the "pioneers" or "settlers" who first came to America... they fought "savages" as well. We as a human population tend to dehumanize anyone we want to conquer or abuse, so that we can justify the actions somehow. It is okay to take someone's land and way of life if they are uncivilized and more like animals that humans... that's the idea. Also, the author wants to say something about this clash between races and civilizations... he wants us to feel a certain way about the characters that we encounter. Depending on how the labels are applied and how he writes his characters, we learn to love or hate the characters, and place blame for the events that happen in the book. The author guides our perceptions by the language he chooses. It doesn't mean that the author thinks of Europeans as pilgrims and the Africans as savages, but that he wants us to think about those interactions and those labels, and consider that bias as we decide what we think about the characters.
b) 'Pilgrim', as used by the narrator to describe the passengers, is an expression of contempt. He wishes to contrast the modern sightseer or tourist, who travels to satisfy their curiosity in reasonable comfort, with the pilgrim of the medieval period who travelled, sometimes barefoot, in the spirit of religious conviction. By lumping his fellow Europeans indistinguishably together, the narrator invites the reader into his own sense of isolation. 'Savages' is a generic term that a man such as the sea captain might be expected to use at this period to describe the native peoples he encountered on his travels, particularly when in conversation with men of similar background. 'Savage', literally 'forest dweller', was applied by Europeans to people whose appearance did not at all correspond to their own. The narrator uses the normal language of his period, thereby highlighting the contrasting abnormality of the situation he faces.

The true darkness in this novella is the way the "pilgrims" and Beligians treat the natives. Kurtz is upfront about his "methods" in gaining ivory (he gets it from the natives by force). It is a quest to the heart of darkness, beginning at the outer station, to the central station, and finally ends at the inner station where it is most evident of the darkness. There are native's heads as fence posts around the station.AnswerI disagree with the evaluation above. I think it goes further than the treatment of the natives, although the inhumanity of the truculent Europeans is part of it. Conrad's main criticism in the novella is of imperialism ― the greed and corruption that flows so naturally from a conquest of money (ivory) and subjugation of natives is the true darkness within the men. Kurtz is an extreme example of the effects of imperialism: he declared himself "god" over the natives and sacrificed them ruthlessly to maintain his power. But even though Kurtz oppresses the natives by virtue of his height and pallor, the readers see him emaciated and broken, only a shadow of what people described as a genius, artist, and musician. This is the true ability of imperialism to warp and mutilate men and is the "darkness" that Conrad describes.
