The trailer you want talked about has to do with modern day racism: no more or less than an effort to sell tickets and further racialize the U.S. The original Kipling poem encouraged Imperialism and an invasion of the Philippines. If you want to know about the so called, "white Man's Burden" go to a Philippine of Oceanic forum.

“The White Man’s Burden”: Kipling’s Hymn to U.S. Imperialism

In February 1899, British novelist and poet Rudyard Kipling wrote a poem entitled “The White Man’s Burden: The United States and The Philippine Islands.” In this poem, Kipling urged the U.S. to take up the “burden” of empire, as had Britain and other European nations. Published in the February, 1899 issue of McClure’s Magazine, the poem coincided with the beginning of the Philippine-American War and U.S. Senate ratification of the treaty that placed Puerto Rico, Guam, Cuba, and the Philippines under American control. Theodore Roosevelt, soon to become vice-president and then president, copied the poem and sent it to his friend, Senator Henry Cabot Lodge, commenting that it was “rather poor poetry, but good sense from the expansion point of view.” Not everyone was as favorably impressed as Roosevelt. The racialized notion of the “White Man’s burden” became a euphemism for imperialism, and many anti-imperialists couched their opposition in reaction to the phrase.

I know its a poem dumbazz.

you still have the white elite but Obama puts a black face on the oppression of marginalized white males like he has done with jewish terrorism on arabs. Its not like south africa or anything but for white males who feel dispossessed they may be able to identify with his character.

The only burden the cave males have is fighting of the constant desire to blow people up when they don't get their way.

And the only burden n-rs have is dealing with the fact that they're inferior to all the other races.

I am sure you are aware that this movie is close to twenty years old. Also, how can blacks be racist? The accurate definition of racism is the ability to enforce hatred for another race politically, economically, and socially. African Americans have never had the ability to enforce their hatred on anyone. Therefore, again, how can they be racist?

Idiot! Blacks can hate any other race just like any other race can hate blacks. However, when was the last time you heard blacks pass laws saying, because you are not black you have to sit at the back of the bus? Because you are not black you can't eat at the same restaurant with us? Because you are not black you have to pay higher interest rates if we even extent credit to you? That is enforcing your hatred on someone. Blacks have never had that ability.
