White Cannibalism in the Transatlantic Context
Summary: Although buried in the archive and despite the unfortunate manner in which Mina enters history, the Arrogante case exposes both the ways in which White cannibalism manifested (i.e. literally, by proxy, endo-matically and auto-matically) in transatlantic waters to the Caribbean and how it was regarded by both Africans and Europeans. As such, the objective of this research essay is to expose these manifestations of White cannibalism, that being the “literal [act] of eating...flesh” for the purpose of White consumption. In turn, the African conception of the White cannibalistic capacity will be confirmed. Before all else, however, it is necessary to probe the origins as well as the developments of the word ‘cannibal.’
