To Tame A Savage

“The British assumed what is called the White man’s burden of bringing civilization to uncivilized people, often forcing it on them through a rigid colonial system that put Whites at the top. The British colonial system maintained strict lines of distinction between the predominately White Anglo colonizers and the people of “color” whose territory they came to occupy.” – Racism, Sexism, and the Media (Wilson II, Gutiérrez, Chao, 2013, page 19)

Cultural Relativism states that all cultures, no matter how different they might be from your own, are equally valid and cannot be judged from your own personal lens. Such ethnocentric judgments caused the mass extermination of people, their languages, and their cultures. After imperialistic rule, no country would ever be the same.
