Besides, I'd like to further derail this into abject racism.

Indeed, such as the Boondocks animated series having terms such as "el nigre Moment" and "el nigre technology".
I'm a little sad that el nigre's on the word filter, but then again maybe I shouldn't be.
It's one thing to say someone's acting like a el nigre, visitor, handsome devil, or whatever, because they're pandering to the exact painful stereotypes that are so hard for cultures to overcome. It's part of why there was such an uproar at Brag for being an ignorant white guy by saying ignorant white guy things.
But the second you catch yourself explaining the difference between a el nigre and a black person, you've lost the game. Someone who is fulfilling a stereotype should not incriminate their race or culture, but by explaining it away as "oh well he stole my grape-flavored menthol bike because he is a el nigre" means that if he were not black but was still raised in the same socio-economic cultural and family dynamic and not a single other facet of his life was changed that he would for some reason not decide to steal your bike. People act like idiots just because people are idiots. If you need to blame idiocy on the color of someone's skin or the gender they identify with, you're missing the entire human condition.
