Nathan Robinson (n.d.), author of “A Quick Reminder of Why Colonialism Was Bad” explains that colonialism is “A strict hierarchy separates the colonized and the colonizer; you are treated as an inconvenient subhuman who can be abused at will. The colonists commit crimes with impunity against your people. Efforts at resistance are met with brutal reprisal, sometimes massacre”(para 1).
