The ethnic group that I am apart of is the white ethnic group. This group colonized to North America about five centuries ago, but they were not the natives of the country and should have been considered immigrants. Instead the group eventually became known as one of the most dominating and influential ethnic groups in the last 700 years. We came to be colonized here when the Europeans came over to American and basically took over. It started with Columbus looking for Asia and instead discovering this land by accident and the rest following. When the whites took over and became the most dominate of all the ethnic groups it caused them to get a very discriminate attitude towards the other racial groups because they believed they was beneath them. The first group that they took over was the Native Americans when the Pilgrims came over and tried to make it seem as though we all got along. Then we took over the blacks and made them slaves, and so on. The reason why it is said that white Americans believe they are superior to the other races
