In talking about racism the starting-point is the event of colonisation and the subsequent process of colonialism. Hence the racism talk about is colonialist racism. Any racial group is potentially racist (Black African groups as well). However, historically, and therefore concretely, racism has taken the form of colonialist racism, which essentially is white racism. It is for this reason that I consider colonialism as the wounding event in what concerns racism.
