Africans started Europeans colonization because Europeans, though they were racially superior. Also, the Europeans colonized Africans because The Africans had the best natural resources. During the second half of the 19th and first half of the 20th century, Europeans affected the Africans lives in tremendous ways. Africans viewed European nations as monsters.

America had trade routes across the Atlantic ocean which made the economy massive, However the problem was European countries cut those trade routes off with Naval Blockades. Overall the war was caused due to America's thirst for power and because of these circumstances such as the German Naval Policy which allowed America to undisputedly declare war. One of the major reasons America was influenced to declare war was America’s massive power which allowed them to imperialize and capitalize other areas overall growing America's power and economy. Imperialism was one of the ways
Kautsky believes that imperialism is a policy adopted by industrialized states so as to cope with the loss of agrarian traditions in the core. His theory of imperialism suggests that industrialized states adopt peripheral states to acquire more agricultural land so as to sustain the core. (Academia) He states that this is the main reason for the colonial wars that took place for expansion and brought about the rise of colonial empires. Hence, his solution to these wars was the formation of cartels amongst the capitalist
So, America decided to fight the Spanish to protect its imports, but also to receive the opportunity to expand. Theodore Roosevelt and his Rough Riders ousted the Spanish, and Spain was forced to concede Puerto Rico, which America claimed as its own, Guam, and the Philippine Islands. In doing so, the Americans were fulfilling the Monroe Doctrine, although imperialism was thought to be a more favorable foreign policy. Puerto Rico was then shaped into this massive sugar plantation at America 's disposal. In conclusion, America 's expansion outcomes were normally because of the economy.

Lenin (1917) broadly defines imperialism as the highest form of capitalism. Lenin explains that imperialism was an effort by the "advanced" countries to exert their dominance in the world, and own and control its economic resources and potential. Capitalism made it unviable for the less developed countries to follow the route of the "advanced" countries, as this would lead to competition. The monopoly capitalist nations, therefore, did not have any interest in development. Rather, their investment went into the exploitation of raw materials for their industries.
Ideas of white supremacy based on the theories of Robert Knox and Charles Darwin, formed the basis upon which Europeans considered themselves superior to the natives of America, Africa and Australia. After the Europeans colonialized Americas, Australia and Africa, they started persecuting natives under the guise of civilizing them. They started exploiting natural resources, mineral wealth and abundant labor often forced in order to meet demand of the industrialized west. The history of colonialism in America, Australia, Sub-continent and Africa is riddled with violent conflict, mass scale persecution, outright genocide and racial discrimination. Slavery in America, genocide against Native American tribes, racial segregation and colonialism
He identified that for indirect slavery to exist in Europe, in the industries, it was essential for direct, pure slavery to exist in the New World. As seen in the cotton industry, capitalism in agriculture follows development of industry because agriculture profit depends on industrial profit. The influence of capitalism is seen in industry much before it is seen in agriculture. And it is only after capitalism strengthens its hold over industry that the agriculture is forced to transform. It is the “stormy growth” of industry in England that transformed slavery in the United States into a form of commercial exploitation.
Colonization is an action in which one civilization captures and controls another civilization, preferably one which may be considered to be of lower status. This action is performed with the intent of civilizing and guiding another civilization.. However, this is a misconception; the advancement of a civilization is not synonymous with the physical aspects of the citizens found within that specific society. Colonization, in simple terms, is fueled by racism, an idea which assisted in the construction of the concept of white supremacy. White supremacy, or the delusion that the White race is the most superior race of all, was the powerful drive which allowed for brutal attacks to happen against people of color for thousands of years.
To further affect the empire, European powers chose an Ottoman strength and turned it into a weak point. Europeans monopolized trade with India and China and set high prices of goods sold in the empire, which greatly affected Ottoman trade and caused inflation in their economy. Moreover, the British, French, and Greek forces combined and were ready to fully take control over Thrace and Constantinople. The location of Constantinople was very significant to the Ottoman trade. In addition, Constantinople was very important to the Europeans as it was such a strong and important city during the Roman Empire.
