The whale is white because whiteness is the most important concept in American history. It was Melville's opinion that we had to destroy the concept of whiteness if we were ever to be a truly great country. Hence the quest to kill the white whale.
>>7553212 He is the white people, the ship is filled with tribals and chinese and blacks and cukolded whites who act as if these people are their equals. The white whale brings balance back by destroying them and maintaining the white peoples position of unassailable dominance and power.
Because if he was black he wouldn't have wrecked the ship. He would've pulled a jack move to steal it then put spinning rims on it.
Moby Dick rap:
Yo! Cruisin in the 7 seas I'm a fuckin boss, Y'all niggaz tossin harpoons can get fucking tossed. Everybody knows harpoons are for fat chicks When I'm done with these bitches, the Pequod will be matchsticks You can't hand the truth from a white whale, cuz I can kill two skiffs with a flip from my white tail! Y'all want me for revenge and fuckin blubber, But when I'm finished I'll be fuckin on yo mother Can't call me Ishmael, you dumb bitch ass, And when you see me comin your your crew better split fast! So put your dukes up, Ahab, and stab at my heart, When I'm about get buck wild you second strings can't even start! Y'all hate be cuz y'all straight bigots, and when I pull a "free Willy" I'm gonna smash yo frigates!
>Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way? Or is it, that as in essence whiteness is not so much a color as the visible absence of color, and at the same time the concrete of all colors; is it for these reasons that there is such a dumb blankness, full of meaning, in a wide landscape of snows--a colorless, all-color of athiesm from which we shrink?
