A scenario that we keep seeing in the history of the humanity: a ‘superior’ race eliminating an ‘inferior’ race. Modern humans have only 4 percent Neanderthal DNA

We know that genetic research has shown that modern humans have about one to four percent Neanderthal DNA. The questions is that if only such a small percentage is from Neanderthals how is it possible for modern humans to be ancestors of the Neanderthals? 

In the same report, Condemi who is a research director at the University of Ai-Marseille suggest that modern humans slowly replaced Neanderthals by deliberately trying to eliminate them. Is this a case of a 'superior' race eliminating an 'inferior' race? Is that a scenario that we keep seeing in the history of the humanity?
