It's not really a racial slur, is it? Archer sure never took it that way and Shran wasn't actually racist against humans. In time it became more of a nickname for Archer than anything else.
Racial slur? Call a black guy blackskin and see how he takes it.

It is a racial slur. I'll agree it's use affetionately and there is no hatred between the two though.
That's really not the same kind of situation, though.
