Best Answer

Henry Labouchere used the term 'the black man's burden' in a satirical sense to critique British colonialism and the injustices inflicted upon colonized peoples. The phrase was a mocking inversion of Rudyard Kipling's 'The White Man's Burden,' highlighting the hypocrisy and racial condescension inherent in colonial ideology.
