Colonialism is a bit like treason, in the sense that a bad connotation is usually restricted to cases where it was unsuccessfull (unless recent or perpetrated by white people on non-white people).

Also, the term is frequently used incorrectly where imperialism would be a better term. Imperialism would be just plain subjugation + taxes, whereas a large influx of people would be needed to make it colonialism.
