The White Man's Burden

The White Mans Burden is a poem about white man's imperialism. White man being technically the most advance and successful took it upon its self to educate and conquer the lesser races.I agree with the poem to a point. I agree white man is the superior race but i do not believe it was white man's burden to share their knowledge. White man would have been better off keeping it to themselves. In fact many non white nations that are now prosperous owe it all to white imperialism. Even today we are still living out the poem. Going to Iraq and putting in another government to civilize the savages is a perfect example. If you ask me we should mind our own business and keep our prosperity and ideas to ourselves.
