Well, I know spook is a term they used in the 50's. Maybe even earlier. Yes its a derogatory, racist term.
Sounds to me like someone somewhere is trying to use a derogatory word and putting a spin on it to make it mainstream slang.
Like the -er to -a ending on the 'n' word. To me its the same thing.
