Originally intended as a derogatory term referring to the state of being a person of African descent who doesn't acknowledge their African heritage.

The original usage has been supplanted and the term is actually a friendly joust used to describe the state of being a random, anonymous, unrecognizable person of African descent.

It's counterpart for white people is Wigga or Wigger.

Last night, on our way to the mall, we almost hit a goddamn incognegro. What posses them to wear dark clothes and walk in the middle of the main road, I'll never know!

When anybody who has not real dark skin dresses, walks, talks or speaks like a stereotypical black person would, he or she is going incognegro, with the intention of not being recognized or to maks their own feelings, reactions or emotions.
l dunno, he showed up last night but incognegro; hood over his head, walking funny and bumping shoulders with some fellas, and left shortly after, he probably will deny he ever came here.

To be hidden in the dark because African people are black, and if they were to hide in the dark with dark clothing on, they wouldnt be seen. So, saying you were incognegro, you are basically saying you cant be seen.
Yo man im incognegro, you can never find me!
