The White Man’s Burden, 2013

With thanks to Rudyard Kipling’s original

Take up the White Man’s burden —
Send forth the best ye breed
To heathen lands and peoples,
And spread the gospel creed:
The holy writ of Freedom
For each bodily demand,
The Human Rights liturgy,
And the Market’s ghostly hand.

Take up the White Man’s burden
(Which never fell to earth) —
With bullets, bombs, and lucre —
To bring to painful birth
The global constitution
Which all men should attain;
Go seek another’s profit,
And work another’s gain.

Take up the White Man’s burden —
No tawdry show of pride;
Like toiling serf or sweeper,
Your ancestry deride.
Those who first bore your burden
Are everywhere reviled,
And whites below your standing
Are half-devil and half-child.

Take up the White Man’s burden —
Fling open Europe’s door:
Let new-caught, sullen peoples
Supplant your native poor;
And when your goal is nearest,
The end for others sought,
Watch old-caught, sullen voters
Bring all your hopes to nought.

whitemansburdencrop3Take up the White Man’s burden —
Have done with “they” and “we” —
Old duties to your nation,
And others’ sovereignty;
Insist the world’s a cauldron
Where all races merge and flow;
And dwell not on the humour
That White Men alone think so.

Take up the White Man’s burden —
Ye dare not stoop to less
Than old conceit and humbug,
Cloaked in new humbleness:
The sickly moral perfume
Where stink of Profit roams;
The lust to build God’s Kingdom
On wrecks of others’ homes.

Take up the White Man’s burden —
And reap what you have sown:
The scorn of foreign peoples,
The hatred of your own;
You’re doomed to rude awakening,
But if you would be free,
Throw off the White Man’s burden —
And a man of Europe be!

    Spot on, Solniger X! Ditching the White Man Burden’s XXI century version is what we need to do if we’re to survive. Multiculturalists are indeed White Supremacists turned upside down: they too believe that Whites are the only moral agents and that coloreds must be uplifted from their savagery.

      Who are the supposed “White Supremacists” who believe that whites are the only moral agents?

      Your critique amounts to saying that multiculturalists are covert “white supremacists.” Don’t you see the irony in this? Be explicitly pro-white, and forget about trying to use politically correct jujitsu on anti-whites. It never does any good.

        Hello IBM,

        I’m as explicitly pro-white as it can be, but I cannot abstain from remarking the irony: they truly are White Supremacists, inasmuch as they believe Whites to be only moral agents, so if Negroes are so uncouth and predatory, it must be Whitey’s fault! Doesn’t multiculturalism work that way?

        I’m not trying to out-maneuver the NWO, if that’s what you mean, hope you get my point.
