coming from America you've probably not heard of imperialism. That's when we Europeans imposed our culture on the rest of the world. If you look at a map of the world from before 1960 you will notice that most of it is coloured red. The red means that those countries were part of the British Empire. An Empire that imposed there way of life, economics and in many cases religion. Much of the world is Christian because the British imposed it on them. If anybody objected then they were often eliminated and during its existence the British Empire killed over 150 million people. So you see Europe has spent over 500 years imposing their culture on others. For your information I am British.
