with my very brief knowledge of history I would take a guess at it being because the "white man" was the race that suppressed others into servitude & slavery thus keeping other race's cultures back while we progressed.

Since we dont know all that much about our history in terms of verifiable accuracy... How do we not know that maybe we are all one race, and the color / other variations is just from genetic drift?

The primitive "white" hunter-gathering cultures all happened thousands of years ago before Rome, before the Greeks before Sumerians. Once cities developed and civilization got going the "whites" (ie Europeans) were no longer primitive. To remain primitive into modern times your society would have had to be isolated from the European culture for a very long time. The only places this happened were extremely remote, in parts of the world where white-skinned people did not live.

But that doesn't make sense because there are far greater numbers in all other races of mankind where the white race only represents approximately 10% of the human population. Rather than repressing the other races it would seem that perhaps the smaller white race that exists today does so as a result of fleeing from and isolating itself from the non-white races. Most likely a primitive act of self preservation as the result of being exterminated by the non-white majority in previous ages.
