When a non-white racist posts a definition on Urban Dictionary and uses his ignorance of post-Moor-invasion Spain to act as though he's being clever by ripping white people for claiming old shit as their own.

Jamal: "Hang on, I gotta finish this beat I made out of an old Lynyrd Skynyrd sample for this album I'm burning so Rihanna can put her name on it... Oh, damn! Yeah, even I have to admit he's Columbusing that shit."
