It's been a full year since the election, since “The Resistance" began, since wokeness spread like a virus. 2018 is up for grabs and it's important to reflect on the motivations that got us where we ended up in 2017. Taken from the 1899 Rudyard Kipling poem, the title “White Man’s Burden”, in this context, is not to justify Eurocentrism but to show how it has imploded. With less domestic outlets for upward mobility, more and more White Americans find themselves in a position not far removed from those colonized people the western world once exploited for financial dominance. The white man & woman's burden is now fighting to not be victims, crushed under the weight of their own system.
