Reply To: Woodrow Wilson's Domestic Policy


Let’s not forget that Wilson also re-segregated the District of Columbia. Many of D.C.’s black residents regard him as the worst of presidents for that reason even today. This initiative was consistent with his imperialist position after the Spanish-American War, when he described the Filipinos as “our subjects” and explained that Western man had a duty to give tutelage to the less advanced peoples — all of which has a certain Kipling (“The White Man’s Burden”) air about it.
