I want to discuss the "underwear" component of "Obama Taco Underwear." Though it is a subject so deep and saturated with meaning as to be impossible to cover in this short writing, I hope to at least add a little bit of clarity. In the most superficial sense, underwear in my art represents the "white people" portion of the trinity of the groups of Americans inherent in the name "Obama Taco Underwear." "Obama Taco Underwear," in name alone, represents the three major groups of American people. "Obama," obviously represents the blacks. "Taco" represents the Latinos and "Underwear" represents the whites because in the majority of the art and photos featured on this site I portray and like to wear "tightie whities." My predisposition toward white cotton underwear has nothing to do with a radial prejudice whatsoever but rather stems back to my childhood and what my mother had me wear; as well as my love of Herman Melville's great American novel, Moby Dick
, where in Chapter 42 he explains the significance of the "The Whiteness of the Whale" and what the color meant to the obsessed, vengeance-seeking Captain Ahab.
