White Man's Burdens

1. It also might be a burden for the guilt that the United States would have to live with because how we would take over others’ countries and to take their raw materials. It said that they thought of the Egyptian night as “loved” because slaves were taken from Africa like places like Egypt. The slaves made everything pretty much, that we have. They help build the roads, get us crops, etc.. I think that Kipling is being sarcastic by the white man’s burdens. The white man’s burden might be because they I think that he is talking about the hardships of the blacks. For example,        “The roads ye shall not tread,
       Go, make them with your living
       And mark them with your dead”
       “The silent sullen peoples
        Shall weigh your God and you.”
This second quote tells hows them and their religion were going to be taken over.

2. I think that he justifies it I think that he sort of justifies imperialism by saying that the white men took over the black men. Also, maybe he means that the white men are spreading, the white men representing U.S.A. He also tried to justify it to the Christian religion because it brings a government to people who didn’t live in the United States and brought them to a city they could be apart of.

3. It would not be appealing because I thought that it seemed like people were overthrowing people and using what they made against them. It might be appealing, though, because “white men” are gaining land and that is a good thing for them. They are being more successful and gaining for raw materials.
