It might not have been meant as racist to start, but primary school kids are not linguistic experts.
When she refers to adult males with dark skin as black men, and plays a game called 'whose afraid of the black man' she doesn't know the history of the phrase and does not really go a research it, she just sees that both are black men, and maybe she should be afraid.

Schwarzer Mann might not, but Schwarzermann does, try to distinguish between the two when you are saying them as a child.
It is both time "schwarzer Mann". Either it was a very stupid idea to apply schwarz to darker skinned people, or someone knew very exactly what he was actually doing. You pick.
