(Image #4- Spanish-American-Cuban-Filipino War of 1898. They had just bought the Filipines from Spain for 20 million. The Filipines did not have any say in the purches. Americans then argued if they should get involved in the Filipines way of life. This image shows the side that the Americans decided to get involved with the Filipines way of life. The quote underneath says "The white man's burden" this was the idea that the white supremacists thought it was their responseabilities to civilize the Filipinos. The intended audience this is directed to are the American's against getting involved with the Philipines because they dont know what they are like other than how the media portrays them.
