How come whites were the only race to conquer/colonize and generally be on top of the entire world for millennia

Europe has all the iron and offshore oil there's literally no other way
Also density as in rainfall and other factors related

To add to this, arable land and agricultural techniques that allowed for civilisation to develop in a way that was conducive to creating technology that'd fuck over other parts of the world.
Sub-Saharan Africans went straight to the Iron age from the Stone age, but they didn't need to invent the wheel because the kind of farming they did didn't require it. We are creatures of necessity and Europeans needed the magic mix of stuff to conquer most of the world I guess. Take that as you will

They were more evil and violent. Life is like that, there's no justice. The strongest survives.

Most of the actual colonization took place less than 150 years ago.

Europe became powerful due to its technological edge, which is very recent.

Africa (as in, the advanced states in West and East Africa) started to lag behind technologically in the late middle ages. The Ottomans were more advanced than Europe until the 1600s. China was more advanced for most of its history, it only changed during the industrial revolution.

There are reasons the industrial revolution happened specifically in Western Europe, mostly economic and in part cultural (in short, the religious views that became dominant there emphasized free thought and entrepreneurship, which allowed for scientific research and using such discoveries for economic gain).
