Meaning of Lumped

While reading the narrative 'Finishing School' by Maya Angelou, I didn't understand the context with the word lumped in it.

The context is,

Her husband remains, in my memory, undefined. I lumped him with all the other white men that I had ever seen and tried not to see.

Could anyone make me understand this context?

    This is a way to say that she pictured him in her mind as part of a group of white men. To her, those white men were all one group of people that she really didn't want to see.
