I think that although he feels he has been reborn of sorts, he still feels alienated from all that is white. This again is illustrated through a Biblical allusion:

"The narrator's entrance into Manhattan is a re-entrance. As he emerges from the subway onto Lenox Avenue, he is again belched from the whale and thrown into an overwhelming surge of people and things."
