I think we just reached "point of diminishing returns." If you're going to dismiss overtly racist comments as not racist because the writers put it in the mouth of a smart-ass teen, unlikely the twain shall meet.

She's a ("Wile E. Coyote") super-genius, remember? That makes it even more racist.

Want to bet that if Freeman's (another irony there) character had replied with, "Hello, native," social media would have burned him and the writers in effigy, even though "native" is more accurate and less racist than "colonizer"?

Yeah, I think so, too.
Compare the behavior of Naomi Osaka and Serena Williams, then tell me who's the real champion.
