The battle royal represents the state in which the white men of the society enjoy keeping the black men, a state of darkness, confusion, and fear. Ironically, the white men can vicariously live out their desire to be less civilized, as they become in reality by constructing the event and by creating a blind rage within the boys they have hired to fight.
