Sorry, I was listing early settlers to areas that predominated. It doesn't mean that others were not contributing.

My neighborhood was originally settled by Dutch, but became well known for its Italian and Jewish population. It is currently predominately Chinese. The Chinese have not brought up removing any Italian, Jewish and Dutch monuments yet.

All of my ancestors have the same ethnic identity that I do, "Homo Sapiens". There is no other human race. In terms of national origins: Great Britain, Scotland, Ireland and Germany, but that only goes back a couple of handfuls of generations. Who knows where their ancestors came from. Humans have been extraordinarily mobile since they left Africa.

This is so true, some people in the US seem to think that the US is the only country in the world that has a population of mixed ethnic heritage. British people in some people's eyes are all 'Anglo Saxons'. The reality is of course somewhat different, Europeans (originally) were always invading and settling each others countries and In the case of Western Europes old colonial powers people have settled from further afield for quite a time now. A very long time ago people from Iberia settled in Britain, then the Celts then Romans, tribes from modern Germany (yes including the Angles and the Saxons), the Vikings, the Normans (who caused genocide in the whole of northern England (see 'The cleansing of the north)) etc, etc, I'm sure I've missed many, in the last few hundred years there have been large immigrations from Italy, China, the Jews, India (other parts of Asia), Jamaica and the West Indies (of course),Nigeria and most recently of all Eastern Europe. If you are American then just having British heritage already makes you a 'mongrel', I reckon most of Europe has had the same flow of settlers too.
