Why or why not? Give examples.
Do you agree that white (European) people have done more than any other race?

Makes sense - why? Because they've been the most developed---and they also include Americans... because they're, originally, all actually Europeans - excelt the REAL Americans Native Americans.
Europeans did the most for the progress of science and industrial development, BUT: when talking about spiritual development, nature respect and usage, ancient understanding of the universe: ALL continents had a great part in it, and probably least of all of them Europe. I'm thinking Africa (Egypt), South America (Mayans, Aztecs), ancient China, Japan, India...0
As someone who is from country sandwiched between Europe and Asia and someone who identifies herself as southeastern Europen I still think that Asian culture has way longer history than European. Asians have definitely done many things throughout the history. When Asia was on the peak of its cultural development European tribes were newly involved in the motion of self determination.
When I think about Asia I imagine old, wrinkled wise man, when I think about Europe I imagine young rebellious daughter of Asia.0

I agree to some levels if your talking bowt polish czech or romanian then no they kinda mostly work in factories over in the uk ( dont think they've done much) no offence to anyone but its so true. Scotland is famous for inventions and medical science the uk as a whole, germany, italy, france I have to agree with you!0
depends on how you look at it0
yes and we run this world2
- Europeans have stolen the US from Native Americans.
- Spain took over many countries.
- They enslaved black people for many years.
- They still treated black people wrong (segregation).
- Many think it's okay to culturally appropriate other cultures.
And yet I still do not hate them, because I don't hate anyone based on race. Even if sometimes I am treated with disrespect with racial slurs such as: "Chink", "Gook", etc. OR I am told to "Go back to China" But ironically I have never even been to China and I am not Chinese but they assume I am.0

Asians probably own the future. Asians are just generally smarter than white people. More culturally ambitious, too. And also taking America increasingly lowering the importance of scientific achievement.
Arabic people would have done the most if Islam weren't incompatible with science, part of the reason The Golden Age ended. "Why do we have to learn shit? God did it.". Christianity was more adaptable to altering perspectives.
But, including all this, white people have made the most technological progress, sure. But that's probably going to end really soon as China takes over. Japan already leads the world in advanced technology. All Asians needed were the fundamentals. Once they had them, boom.
As for more killing or evil, then that's a really tedious thing to answer. A general tallying would put Asians and whites at around the same number of killings when taking the top 10 most deadly incidents in history into account.2
I wouldn't agree that it's true. I wouldn't agree that it's not. Because I don't know. How do you define it? How do you measure it? What relative weight do you lace on things? What period are you talking about? Does something ten years ago carry more weight than something 100 years ago, which carries more weight than something 2000 years ago? Do bad things cancel out good things?
It's so subjective that it can't possibly be answered.
As far as I'm concerned, plants and animals, and rain and sun, have done more than humans ever did. But that's a different matter.0
No.. from 1100s to 1300s Muslim people made a lot of inventions about geography, chemistry, medicine, astronomy and pyshic. There are like 1200-1500 inventions today which Muslim people found and most of them are still being used in this century. Asian people made a lot of inventions aswell so we can't skip them, Europeans made inventions too, every people made good things for the world.
by the way its illogical to say "white" word for only Europeans/Westerns. I am not European but I am more white compared to some Europeans, I am not Black or Asian thats stupid.1
nah. It's just a matter of which era you look at. The Chinese, Arabs, Mongols, and Greek all had empires, established legal and trade systems that encompassed a big chunk of the known world (at their time)
These empires came up with things like Human rights charters, Algebra, Sailing and navigation instruments, silk, money currency, express mailing system, warfare tactics, paper, and medicine.
It's only in recent era that european imperialsm (Great Britain, France, Portugal, etc.) put Europe on the map for scientific innovation and political power.1

Done more "what"?
All of the World Wars were waged by "white people" so you could say they've done the most destruction.
A lot of modern technology was born of an era where "white people" held technocratic power so you could say they've done the most advancement in that sense as well.
But honestly humans from different regions rarely, if ever, care too much about one another's progress and it wasn't until the advent of globalization that it even mattered.1

Well, you wouldn't have this beautiful and free life if it wasn't for them soooo the answer is quite obvious.0
Not necassarily, Chinese have done a great deal of things such as inventing the gun powder, paper, compass, clock, movable printing etc. They also built the great Wall. Arabs invented algebra, logarithms and also innovated the numbering system. They also invented the guitar and pioneered colleges and hospitals along with their innovations in medicine, chemistry, physics and architecture. Also the great pyramids were built by Egyptians.0
We have done both good and evil deeds more than any other races. We are the main reason of the technological progress but also guilty of the genocides and wars that happened during the last centuries.0
Done more for the world? Or what are we talking here?0
Have done more on what exactly? This question is too random.0
Done what? Explain it little bit more when you ask a question :)0
smh... an anon... figures0
yes, of course.
but in terms of mass production, that is questionable.
the japanese, indians and chinese are quickly catching up.
you must remember, europeans basically OWNED THEM to mine basic materials like metals as well as do menial work, at a discount price.
prior to industrialization, this was a big deal.
in the past the east had many more amazing architectural achievements as well and medicinal and literary.
Industrialization and education were the two key inventions that sky rocketed development in the west (as well as an open mind).0
Whats the difference?0
