Was this dumb parenting?

my husband and I have 3 kids together ages 12,14 and 6 with another on the way. My husband has the older kids so shores the youngest gets off easy cause she's our only daughter and she's still a baby (at least in his eyes) but she's too young. Anyways my husband had the boys cut the grass and he called them wet backs. Mind you he's Mexican (although a pale one) so because our boys are dark skinned compared to their dad it can look wrong to someone just passing by. He of course says it jokingly but is it neglectful? I'm Asian so if I wanted to call them chinks I guess I could but I'm not that parent. And we had the first 2 in our early 20's so I don't know but is it wrong of him to call them that?
