I accept that North Americans struggle to speak the English language properly but what the hell is a person that has been "racialized"?

On the assumption that those that, North Americans, would say have been burglarized are those that have been burgled, what has happened to those that have been racialized?
Is it the safe word that you and your wife use while role playing?

Totally agree with you. They are, which is why my in-laws opted to remain on the reservation rather than assimilate into Quebec society.

So, in Ontario anyway, it's just someone who isn't white. I guess if you are white and subject to some sort of discrimination through belief, you are a religionized person, through disability, a disableized person, through orientation, a LGBTQIAized person and, through pomposity, a governmentalized person.
Thank you

All this dashcam/mobile recording of police 'methods' is quite revealing. Cannot understand the actions of that Alberta RCMP that charged at the apprehended chief.

From Wikipedia
"In sociology, racialization or ethnicization is the process of ascribing ethnic or racial identities to a relationship, social practice, or group that did not identify itself as such.[1] Racialization or ethnicization is often borne out of the interaction of a group with a group that it dominates and ascribes identity for the purpose of continued domination. While it is often borne out of domination, the racialized and ethnicized group often gradually identifies with and even embraces the ascribed identity and thus becomes a self-ascribed race or ethnicity. These processes have been common across the history of imperialism, nationalism, and racial and ethnic hierarchies."

For example, describing Jews as misers, Irish people as stupid, black people as servants. or violent criminals, or Scots as drunks, or Canadians as boring. Some of these perceptions are more dangerous than others.

Well, yes, calling people "cradles" is racializing them in the sense meant there but, in Ontario, as noted above, it's only non-white people who are racialized and all non-white people are racialized.

Maybe we can't see the forest for the trees. I'm sure those non-white/racialized folk have some fitting moniker for the rest of us.
