Mensagem:  Yes, the fact is that some groups just always have to bully other groups. Before northern europeans came into contact with people of very different ethnicity, they simply abused each other (and of course continued to do so even after).

However, my understanding is that it was and is much the same in Africa, Asia, and with native Americans. Whether it was to a lesser degree or not is hard to know.

I know there is a school of thought suggesting that northern europeans were "genetically" more aggressive than other groups, since the world has, effectively, been dominated by northern europeans.
There may be some possibility that peoples who spent many generations in cold, difficult climates became- on average- more aggressive than groups acclimated to life in more tropical climates. Think of the Mongols, the Japanese, non-white groups from similar climates who were also very aggressive.

Could be an interesting specialty for a scholar.
