English is not my first language so I want to know… In “Cinderella Boy” there is such a thing called “blackest insult”? What is an black insult?

The color black is often used to describe feelings. A “black” or “dark” feeling is one that makes a person feel completely depressed, hated, offended, or as if they’ve been put beneath a cloud. It can also describe a very mean insult.

So in that moment, Carter called Declan “a pretty cool dude”. It was a compliment, because it meant Carter liked Declan, but it was a “black insult”, because Declan does not identify as a boy, or a “dude”.

So it was both, at the same time.

Does that make sense?
