Not our problem that no predominately non-white nation outside of Japan is considered a first world industrial nation.
You forgot South Korea, and probably China too. There's a lot more industry in China now that probably any other country in the world. Your smartphone was most likely made there, and there's pretty much no technology more cutting-edge than that.
Compare the age of these white established nations to the ages of those in Africa or Asia or the Middle East. It wasn't privilege that advanced them as fast as it did, it was hard work and ingenuity.
You need to read Guns, Germs, and Steel by Jared Diamond. There's good reasons Africa is so far behind. As for the Middle East, personally I'd lay the blame for that entirely on religion. The Muslim cultures used to lead the world in math and science, until one day they decided that anything that wasn't in the Qu'ran was crap, and it's been downhill since then. That should be a good lesson to the religionists here in the US and other western nations, but they're not learning it. Back in the times the Muslims were in the lead, the white Europeans were living in mud huts as serfs, and had no education and were largely illiterate. It wasn't until the Renaissance much later that Europe really turned things around (and simultaneously, the Muslims had abandoned all progress in the name of religion). In short, if the Muslims hadn't turned fundamentalist back then, things would be very, very different now. The Europeans "won" because the Muslims turned stupid. Also, during much of that time, China, while having a large and old civilization, intentionally turned inwards and didn't interact much with the outside world. It's not that hard to come out ahead when your biggest competitors intentionally shoot themselves in the foot.
Finally, I wouldn't really call the success of Europeans the result of just "hard work". People in other cultures were working hard too. The Europeans just did several things right for a change, which led to some great successes, though they also did some awful things to take advantage of others. The things they did right were adopting rule of law rather than theocracy, adopting rational thought (science), and adopting an economic system that allowed greater prosperity across the population (instead of feudalism where a few lords had all the money and resources and everyone else had squat; you're not going to get much innovation when everyone's dirt poor). The awful things they did were colonizing the "new world", and brutally subjugating the people there (the Spanish were the ones most guilty of this brutality, and Spain still celebrates this today by having military parades on Columbus Day to honor his brutality toward the natives; the English weren't nearly as bad, and generally tried to use treaties to take land from people who didn't have a concept of land ownership). This paid off hugely for the Europeans, but at the expense of the Incas, Mayans, Aztecs, and various indigenous tribes. I wouldn't call stealing from people and murdering them to be "just rewards for hard work".
