The White Man's Burden & Puerto Rico



We studied Rudyard Kipling's poem "The White Man's Burden" in junior high school, as our supplemental texts actually came from books that were primarily used in the 1940s.

In this poem the United States has just acquired the Philippines after the *Spanish-American War and Rudyard Kipling is calling upon the Americans to establish an Empire similar to that of Great Britain to further Western Civilization to non-white people.

*As a result of this war, the United States acquired Puerto Rico.


Take up The White Man's Burden
Send forth the best ye breed--
Go bind your sons to Exile
To serve your captives' need;
To wait in heavy harness,
On fluttered folk and wild--
Your new- caught, sullen peoples,
Half- devil and half- child.


So goes the first stanza of this poem In praise of encouraging the
United States to maintain it's imperialist stature. Teddy Roosevelt was greatly influenced by this poem, as his subsequent policies as president demonstrated.

trump's response today to the Puerto Ricans has a bit of the stench of this ancient neo-colonialism to it.

The Spanish-American War took place in 1898-- and here we are in 2017.
History does matter.

Boris Johnson didn't realize his mic was on when he recited lines from Rudyard Kipling's "Road to Mandalay" in a temple in Burma. The poem is pro-colonial. Uncool for the Foreign Secretary of the country that occupied Burma to refer to it on an official state visit.

There's a Burma girl a-settin', and I know she thinks o' me;
For the wind is in the palm-trees, and the temple-bells they say:
"Come you back, you British soldier; come you back to Mandalay! "

 

 

Appreciate he didn't sing it. :lol:

Another limousine libtard phony... 

he is no more likely to practice the phony brand of meaningless liberal charity than the pelosis of san francisco bay are.

 

oh, he's got a new baby. liberals historically say things to fake charity and selflessness but then surprisingly ;) refuse to follow through on it...

 

"but if you feel the offer itself is enough?..." -the president (henry fonda), fail-safe

 

but in liberal president fonda's case, he did!...

 

and nuked NYC...to avoid all-out thermonuclear annihilation. some liberal balancing act. :)
