Behind most instances of crime and victimisation lies inequality. From Chiquita Brands, the US bananas producer that massacred its Colombian workers; to Bolsonaro, the president who promoted shooting Indigenous Brazilians; to the racialised conditions of work in criminology, harm thrives in scenarios where some groups can more than others. Considering class, gender, and race, criminologists have long preached inequality's ills. However, we have yet left to theorise the criminology of inequality from the vantage point of the colonised. I thus propose seeing colonial stigmas as a global criminogenic force: colonial stigmas are markers that based on nationality, ethnicity and worldview hierarchize human beings. Stigmas—added to money and political power—increase inequality and facilitate crime worldwide.
