Well, the same could be said for any people that has moved into and
settled a region. Putting this in racial terms is a bit misleading. The
Chinese, for example, have dome particularly well colonising and
inhabiting areas outside their centre of diversity.
If what the writer says about white people being a 'hardy weed', then
this has been to the people's advantage in setting up home in diverse
climates and regions and, from their point of view, is a highly
valuable characteristic as it encompasses biological adaptability, a
key characteristic for the survival of any life form.
Let's steer away from racial interpretations of things.
