It also sounds like something a Canadian would say too.

Black guy. I’ve never heard the term, and I’ve been called everything from the garden variety “nigger” to “sun pirate” (my absolute favorite, ever; legit lol’ed at the speaker, coincidentally a friend).

I think you steal the sun rays by absorbing it.

The most random thing I've been called is Wigwam.

Is Sun Pirate an official slur? Because that's a great name for like a New God or Herald.

Just a friend and I back in middle school, going back and forth insulting each other as pre-teen boys do. It was hilarious and I had no choice but to concede the win to him.

I called one of my friends at work "Ye Blessed of Yakub" and then the owner told me to stop colonizing and get back to my nefarious cave demonry, and that's how I know I have found my dream job

LOL a black American recently accused my boss of being a racist because my boss "apparently" didn't make eye contact with him during a heated argument.

Didn't go well with the black American when we all burst out in laughter & pointed out that our boss wasn't racist, he just hated everyone equally.

I avoid eye contact a lot unless I make a conscious effort.  Just a weird habit of mine.

Also, I love the term Sun Pirate.

Well this one is a bit more on the nose. I love the "we are all Americans" quote too. Let me use all these terms to disparage your race then complain about the terms you use to celebrate it.

To "monkey it up" is definitely a term I've heard before.

But putting it in this context is indicative of either mindless stupidity or a brand of rather unsubtle dog-whistling. Considering the political climate, the latter seems likely. Because it's an existing expression, there's plausible deniability, but it would still attract accusations, which would also help energize a certain anti-PC crowd of voters. He likely wasn't going to score with the voters who care anyway, but creating a controversy like this will help with mobilization of the deplorable ones that don't appreciate being told what they can't say about simians.

So it's either stupid or evil.
