What was the role of Social Darwinism in American imperialism? Are there implications of race underneath a belief in Social Darwinism?

  • U.S. history -

    Social Darwinism applied evolution's "survival of the fittest" erroneously to humans. Imperialists used this doctrine to justify their conquering of other people. Of course, race played a large role in the beliefs of social Darwinism.

    Are there any specific examples of the belief in Social Darwinism in American imperialism? The only thing that comes to mind was the extermination/assimilation of natives, but that's more so European imperialism.
