Analysis | “The White Man’s Burden” by Rudyard Kipling

"The White Man's Burden" presents the conquering of non-white races as white individuals' benevolent good obligation. The reference in the title to the "The White Man's Burden" is about the challenges "The white man" faces during their attempts to civilize the natives and therefore the burden.
