Racism Causes Imperialism
  • All over the globe today we see the peoples of
    Europe creating a mighty aristocracy of the white
    races. Those who take no share in this great
    rivalry will play a pitiable part in time to
    come. The colonizing impulse has become a vital
    question for a great nation. We in Germany
    realize today what opportunities we have missed.
    The consequences of the last half-century have
    been appalling, for in them England has conquered
    the world. We must, and will, take our share in
    the domination of the world by white races.
  • Heinrich von Treitschke, German Historian (1897)

  • The White Mans Burden

Take up the White Mans burden Send forth the
best ye breed Go bind your sons to exile To
serve your captives need Take up the White
Mans burden The savage wars of peace Fill full
the mouth of Famine, And bid the sickness cease
And when your goal is nearest (The end for
others sought) Watch sloth and heathen folly
Bring all your hope to naught.
