And you actually had to question if I was calling you a moron...I'd say the trolling is pretty good, though.

Are you going to answer my question? Because I'm not understanding the rules to racism here.

If a black guy calls a a white guy "colonizer", is that racist?

If a white guy calls a black guy "slave", is that racist?

Anyone calling another person "colonizer" is in no way saying they are racially superior to that person. Calling someone a slave on the other hand definitely implies racial superiority.

"Colonizer", is intended as an insult to white people. Correct?

Yes but racism, by definition, is the belief of racial superiority. So for an insult to be racist it would have be used in a way to show superiority. Calling someone colonizer at most is racially insensitive.

So when a black person refers to a white person as "colonizer" I guess they are admiting their inferiority to white people? And is that racism against themself? Even tho its used as a slight, motivated by the white persons race, it's not racist? How does this work.

It seems racism and racially insensitive are on this kind of racist spectrum. Is there some kind "racism meter" one can use to determine what is racist or racially insensitive or whatever else there is?

Personally, I consider the term colonizer to be racist because it shows at least a moral superiority of one race over another.  The person being called a colonizer is of lower moral fiber due to their race.

You know colonizer and slave aren't the opposite of each other right?

Ah yes, another rule for racism. It must be opposite. Where does one learn such rules Neo?

I understand "colonizer" just fine. What I don't understand is why it's not racism when used to describe white people as its an insult based on their race, and as AP said, indicates a moral superiority because of their race.

Can you explain that?

I would consider colonized racist, depending on the context. Good thing white people don't generally get called that.

They shouldn't.  Just get a new show.  Most reunion shows are a little disappointing anyway.
