You read about euorpean history and what they did to each other and other people was so bad. I know different cultures and poeple were bad too like the aztecs and arabics but the euorpeans did everything so much worse then everyone else.

Europeans are no better or no worse than any other culture of the world. Check out this list of genocides through the past 150 years alone:
There have been TONS of terrible events throughout human history from all kinds of cultures. Here's another list of some of the dictators/political military leaders who've been involved in the killing of many citizens: www.ranker.com/.../barbara-gaston
The book guns, germs, steel explains why imperialism, if you mean that specifically, was the cause for some of the lopsided effects of that period of time, however. Basically, access to guns, different diseases and resources like steel helped some cultures explode faster than others, leaving the less developed nations at the mercy of the stronger ones.
But atrocity has been going on all over the world since... forever? Here is a pretty extensive list of genocides on wikipedia:
You'll see there are Russian. Chinese, African, North and South American, European, Middle Eastern, etc.0

For many reasons but the main reasons were due to different beliefs, desire for power/wealth and the fact that Europeans and their Empires were always in very close proximity within one another. Having conflicting beliefs and being forced to be neighbors with one another is a recipe for chaos and conflict. I mean look at Africa and the Middle East. They are a prime example of what happens when this combination occur. Add in resources, religion and advancement in technology and you get constant war, which explains about 95% of Europe's history.
Europeans were very awful to one another but even worst they were even awful to other sects of people that resided within others continents, especially in Africa which they contributed in decimating from top to bottom. This colonization was due to the same reasons listed above however this time the belief in racial hierarchy was added in.0
