Why do many people think that whites are better than people of other races?
Many people worship the Western system, and many people think that whites are more civilized, friendly, and smarter.

Good question. I have no idea why, but it's highly likely these people never met a white person or have never spent a significant amount of their time in a white country. The only thing I can say is that whites aren't more civilized, nor smarter nor friendlier than any other group. I've met some people from poor nations that are infatuated by white countries like the U.S. The poor ones have been severely brainwashed and refuse to view facts as they are.

Middle Eastern Civilization had a head start in building Civilization in the Bronze Age, but was surpassed by Asians & Europeans shortly after In the Iron Age.. At the advent of the industrial revolution due to Newcomen & Trevithick's Steam engines & locomotive (external engine) is where European Civilization took off, but it was the Internal Combustion Engine (Automotive, Aircraft, Jet) & Alternating Current that really turbo boosted European Civilizations in Europe, & Europeanized N. America (USA) & Australia leaving every great civilizations way behind, until if & when China reclaims it in the future as China, followed by Japan & Korea closing the gap. Amerindians built their own impressive civilization, but were still far behind middle Eastern, Asians, & Europeans due to the lack of Iron tech/metallurgy, written language & the wheel until contact with Europeans. Sub Sahara Africa was way behind everyone else as sub Sahara never matured to developing a written language, farming, academics & technologically advance civilizations to rival great Middle Eastern, East Asian, & European civilizations from Ancient to modern times. Academics, Farming, & Iron technology were brought to Sub Sahara by Arabs & Europeans. If Sub Saharans had never made contact with Arabs, Chinese, & Europeans, they would have remained as the N. Sentinelese Islanders have. Feelings may be hurt, but facts are facts everyone should accept their short comings & others great achievement to grow in maturity & move forward.
The Sahara desert prevented Sub Saharan contact with the middle east civilization (Sumer, Mesopotamia, Persia, Anatolia, Assyria, Egypt). The planting of crops & the written language (cuneiform, Taiji (Chinese characters), Sanskrit, Indo European Alphabet) to record the crop yields in Farming Developed in the Fertile Crescent 8,000 BC., Southern Europe & Mehgarh (Pakistan) by 7,000 BC, Asia (China) was Farming Rice & Planting in Rows by 6,800 BC, Ireland & Central Europe by 5,500 BC. Domestication of Horses in the Eurasian Steppes & the Development of Oxcart vehicles by 4,000 BC., Egypt & Thailand farmed by 4,000 BC, India by 3,000 BC. The first great civilization to arise from these Farming Revolution was Sumeria & Mesopotamia. They developed the Chariot for warfare 2500 BC the Oldest Real Wheel-Axle Combination dates back in 3150 Eastern Europe. From Copper, Tin, & Bronze gave Sumeria an edge over nearby kingdoms, but also spreading the metal indirectly which allowed Greece & Persia to conquer the Middle East & Egypt. Europe & Asia surpassed them with Iron. East Asia, BC era,(China) cast iron industrialization, carbonized & chrome plating steel swords with the use of double piston bellows. India developed Damascus blade for beauty & some strength in the middle Ages. Japan created the strongest & sharpest steel swords before Bessemer employed 2 Chinese Metallurgist from China to develop his Bessemer process industrializing steel production. Egypt had Hieroglyphs, but Sub-Sahara Africans never created or adopted a written language of their own until Arabs (1000-1200 AD/CE) then 4 or 5 hundred years later Europeans, brought & taught their Alphabets (Aramaic/Italic) to assimilated Sub Saharan Hunter Gathering or pastoral (N/E Africans) Elites. Sub Saharan Contact with Ancient Egypt (Arab) or Arabia were limited to Sudan & Northern shores of the horn of Africa where Ancient Egypt & Arabia harvested their slaves from. If they had gone further south into the Interior of Sub Sahara, they'd have had it easy to colonize & assimilate Bush Kingdoms of Sub Sahara.
China's Wealth & Influence were due to their technology in Porcelain, Silk, Gun Powder 400 AD/CE, Crossbow, Seed Drill, Industrial Cast Iron Plow, Cannon, Drill Mining, Rudder, Chain Pumps, Stirrups, Horse Harness, Compass, Moveable Type Printing, Pasta... that reached Europe through the Silk Road, the Middle East, & the Indian Ocean. Europe being in constant warfare had to keep innovating & with the Arrival of Chinese Iron Technology in Cannons, Match Lock, Crossbow, Iron Plow..., Europe Reversed Engineered Chinese Technology & kept improving upon them to Match China in their Global Status until Completely over taking China's Great Civilization in their Global Status (notably Britain).
Europeans independent written language is how Europeans establish their own independent Academics in Literature, Grammar, Art, Engineering, Mechanics & modern Science into the Industrial Age through the Computer & Space Age. The Chinese, Indians or Turks didn't teach them these things through Affirmative Action. Although Hindu Arabic numerals & decimals originating in the Middle East & India region/area (1100CE), Europe was able to Build Pantheons, Castles, Domes, Colosseum, & Arches without It using Roman Numerals, Geometry, measurement, & Mathematics independent from other Civilization. When the Hindu Arabic Numerals did arrive in Europe 1100 AD, it enabled Galileo, & Isaac Newton to develop a new form of Mathematics called Physics that spawned, Calculus & Quantum Physics. Europe had astronomy before Marco Polo came back with the compass..
Slavery is the legacy of human history since scientific Adam & Eve's Great Grand Children Separated themselves into clans, villages, & tribes resulting from over crowding & depletion of resource ensued competition, rivalry subjugation slavery, theft, rape, murder, raiding, & warfare. Slavery has been part of N. Africa, the Arabian Peninsula, & Persia before civilization sprang up in the fertile crescent. Sub Saharans are no exemption, but had very limited contact with Kingdoms within or around the fertile crescent as the Great Sahara Desert prevented easy access. Ancient Egypt never went beyond N. Sudan & Abyssinia to wage war to harvest slaves. Camels originating from Mongolia enabled small trading scouts of Muslim slave traders to penetrate the Great Deserts as they slowly establish routes to Oasis within the desert penetrating the Sahel from 1000CE-1200CE into the interior of Sub Sahara along the Coast. Timbuktu was a slave Port founded by Arabs that also served as a library to spread Islam to the Elites that the Arabs were trading with for slaves. Bush Kingdoms of Africa had argued that slavery was their god given right sanctioned by their Oracle when European powers tried to abolish slavery in Sub Sahara Africa in late early 1900s. Is it Racist? The world back then was very much tribally nationalistic no matter the tribe, ethnicity, sub specie, or nationality.
Chinese fore & aft sails, rudder, compass, gun powder & cannon (allowing them to expel the Cordova Caliphate from Spain) reached Europe through travelers & merchants such as Marco Polo, reversed engineered & improved over time enable Europeans such as the Portuguese to circumvent the Sahara desert to establish trading port with the coastal villages & hunter gathering Kingdoms on their (Portuguese) way to India.
Turkey was the first among Islamic States to Abolish Chattel/Caste Slavery for European Descent & Sub Saharan Descents in the 1880s. The Slave Culture lives on in Islamic states throughout the middle east in Immigrant Sponsorship with immigrants usually unpaid, abused, raped & beheaded. Slavery is pretty much hidden & Islamist like ISIS, Al Qaeda, Boko Haram... wants to revived the practice openly in its former glory as it was 55-60 years ago. Traditional Slavery weren't just through warfare & raiding campaigns but also involved rape & mutilations of adult & minor females, but also offering ones virgin tween daughter as payment for an offense to another family or spirits for which the spiritual leader receives the pubescent girl as his slave in labor & sex. Child trafficking is huge business in the Sahel, N Africa, Nigeria, Arabian Peninsula... South Africa's Corrupt Rape & Murder rate for 2 decades is deeply rooted within the tribal tradition & society of Sub Saharans since scientific Adam/Eve in Africa.
With the arrival of Arabs (1000CE-1200CE) in the interior of Sub Sahara & before the Portuguese (late 1400s) sailed around Africa to set up slave trading ports with costal bush kingdoms, tribal warfare controlled population through sacrificial ceremonies that may involved having to consume sacrificial offerings, a practice that still exist.
Joshua Milton Blayhi (Gen. Butt Naked) being notorious for conducting these sacrificial ceremonies as its High Priest in Liberia (VICE: Cannibal Warlords). In Tanzania Albino's, mostly children, are killed for their body parts as charms, souvenirs, & even consumed in the same manner that Gorilla are slaughtered for souvenirs & consumption for the belief of gaining powers like Black Panther's heart of herb.
After abolition of slavery swept Europe (serfs), N. Americas, then central & S. America 30-40 years later, Sub Saharan Bush Kingdoms, later republics, still had a reliable slave trading partner with Arab & Arabize nations for another 100-140 years (Saudi Arabia (1964), UAE (64), Zanzibar (64), Mauritania 2007).
Europe tried to develop Sub Sahara Africa with their tech, medicine, writing/documentation & system of governance, Now China is trying to finish where Europeans left off. Angola may become the Wakanda that Africans never built. Sub Saharan Countries just wait hand & foot for Oriental & Europeans to Improve, Maintain, & Jump start the Infrastructure brought & put in place by People of European descent that Sub Saharan are currently miss managing into ruins.Source(s): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XasTcDsDfMg http://www.raceandhistory.com/cgi-bin/forum/webbbs...

Is it that whites think they are better or other races think that white people are better? Everyone is so quick to call out a white person for racism over things that aren’t even racist which suggests they are insecure in who they are and subconsciously suggesting that white is better (people hate on white people all the time and they don’t get called out as racist. Double standards!!) I am white and I don’t think white people are better, I see white trash around all the time that makes me ashamed to be white lol there are good and bad in every race.
Western countries are full of fat lazy drunk slobs. Tell me how that is better?

Many point out the Europe is where the scientific advances come from. At least in the last 300 years. And that whites perform better on IQ tests.
I never noticed any difference in friendlyness. And I've lived in other countries.Source(s): White supremacist have used that as the reason to me.

I am white and I don't think that however many non-whites do emigrate to white countries and adopt white culture so that might give you a hint to why some people think like that.

I am white but have NEVER considered myself better than people of other races or colours.
I look at the person and not their race, colour, religious beliefs, political persuasions or sexual orientation.

It's a fact, just see the savages gang-raping women in Germany, whether you like it or not.
However, Western non-whites are civilized
