    Question Racial slurs against African people in Greek

    This is for a novel I'm writing. I won't go into detail on what it's about here, but suffice to say it takes place in Greece and there are racist bad guys.

    What are common racial slurs that may be directed at people of African descent in the Greek language? So far in my research, the big one I've encountered is arapis, but this seems to have originally been intended for Arabs rather than Africans. What I'm looking for is a slur in Greek that is uniquely applied to Africans. If it invokes color terminology, that would be best.
