Firminio is of Hispanic origin isn't he? So it's a different race. But also intent is the driver of whether something is racist or not
He’s Latino, not Hispanic.

My apologies

Makes no difference though, still a different "race", so your point remains.

I had a black friend called White who went by the nickname Chalky too
Seems quite a common thing. I remember my dad always talking about an old friend he had called Chalky White.

Didn’t Jim Davidson also joke about Chalky?
