Is Copyright Racist?

Here is a novel argument against copyright.  At the top of a PDF of Aimé Césaire's Discourse on Colonialism, it reads:
COPYRIGHT: From a Counter-Racist perspective, this is nothing other than a mechanism employed by White Supremacists (Racists) that has been designed to control access to information by non-White people
I'm not sure if this comment was present in the original Césaire text or not.  I have a hunch it wasn't and was added by whoever created the PDF.
