Benito Cereno

The tone at the end of the narrative is exceedingly cryptic. The last exchange between Captain Delano and Benito Cereno begins to moralize on the events of the narrative but is cut off, at least in conversation. Based on this last conversation and the concluding paragraphs, how might the text be dealing with questions of race relations? And what might be interpreted of Cereno's relationship with his captors, particularly Babo?
