There is an evolution of the anti- imperialism into the anti-colonialism critique, but then, you know, most Marxism got its inspiration from a 'nobel savage' ideal, and how the ideal tribe was not nomadic but sedentary within one utopianist valley. The boogyman tribes were the ones who invaded and had imperialist plans for expansion and extraction of wealth.
The alternative paradigm does not involve borders or nationalism/tribalism, and assumes that all people are commonly linked, therefore dissolving the whole concept of colonialism and anticolonial.
There is either good assimilation or bad assimilation, and the term anti-colonialism is often mistakenly used to just describe bad assimilation. Let's face it, the whole planet has been bad-assimilated, using anti-colonialism diminishes the critique against the capitalist/corporate global hegemony.
