The White Man’s Burden




 Feb. 16, 1920, White Man's Burden 
 
Feb. 16, 1920: The Times says of “The White Man’s Burden,” “It is a pity that this phrase, popularized by Rudyard Kipling twenty years ago and used to enunciate a great truth, should be in danger of deterioration through ribald jest and unworthy sneer.”
