You claim white people own England, and that is not racist? Nazis also believed they weren't racist, they just believed they were right.
The Roman conquest of Britain was a gradual process, beginning effectively in AD 43 under Emperor Claudius, whose general Aulus Plautius served as first governor of Britannia. However, Great Britain had already frequently been the target of invasions, planned and actual, by forces of the Roman Republic and Roman Empire. In common with other regions on the edge of the empire, Britain had enjoyed diplomatic and trading links with the Romans in the century since Julius Caesar's expeditions in 55 and 54 BC, and Roman economic and cultural influence was a significant part of the British late pre-Roman Iron Age, especially in the south.
The Anglo-Saxon settlement of Britain was the migration of Germanic peoples from continental Europe to Great Britain during the Early Middle Ages, specifically the arrival of the Anglo-Saxons in Britain after the demise of Roman rule in the 5th century. The stimulus, progression and impact of the Anglo-Saxon settlement of Britain is subject to considerable disagreement, prompted by varying accounts and evidences. However, the common division of the migrants into Angles, Saxons and Jutes — peoples from Angeln, Old Saxony and Jutland — is derived from the Historia ecclesiastica gentis Anglorum, an 8th-century Latin text written by Bede about Christianity in the Kingdom of England. Additional historical and archaeological research in the early-20th century suggested that a wider range of Germanic peoples from the coasts of Frisia, Lower Saxony, and Sweden may also have moved to Britain in this era. The Anglo-Saxons supplanted Celtic culture and society in much of southern and central Britain, and contributed to the creation of Anglo-Saxon England and the use of the Old English language.
Celtic arrival in Britain is usually taken to correspond to Hallstatt influence and the appearance of chariot burials in what is now England from about the 6th century BC. However, several archaeologists including John Waddell suppose there must have been Celtic presence in Britain already in the late Bronze Age, i.e. in mid 2nd millennium BC. Some Iron Age migration does seem to have occurred but the nature of the interactions with the indigenous populations of the isles is unknown. In the late Iron Age Pryor estimates that the population of Britain and Ireland was between 1 and 1.5 million, upon which a smaller number of Celtic-speaking immigrant populations would have installed themseleves as a superstrate. By ca. the 6th century (Sub-Roman Britain), most of the inhabitants of the Isles were speaking Celtic languages of either the Goidelic or the Brythonic branch.
In 793, Viking raiders landed near the monastery on Lindisfarne Island and looted it. This began more than two centuries of Viking incursions into England, which was then divided into several kingdoms.
The Norman conquest of England began on 28 September 1066 with the invasion of England by William, Duke of Normandy, who became known as William the Conqueror after his victory at the Battle of Hastings on 14 October 1066, defeating the then king Harold II of England. Harold's army was badly depleted in the English victory at the Battle of Stamford Bridge in Northern England on 25 September 1066 over the army of King Harald III of Norway. By early 1071, William had secured control of most of England, although rebellions and resistance continued to approximately 1088.

It isn't a matter of where you are born, it is a matter of ethnicity.
