A Persian word literally meaning "black".

It's generally used in two main contexts; either to describe jet black garments/objects or as an adjective/noun for people with very dark black HAIR, EYEBROWS or EYES, in a completely NON-derogatory manner!

It is never used by the general Persian speaker to describe people with darker skin colour e.g. those of African descent, let alone in a derogatory way (as opposed to what's been suggested here before).

The origins of the word stem from the Persian language of Farsi. "Meshky" actually means "black" in Farsi. The word "meshky" is used as a secretive derrogatory remark towards African Americans. It is a lot more inconspicuous to yell out "meshky" rather than to yell out other offensive words that start with "n". "Meshky" is used commonly amongst suburban white kids. Although only a few say it to black kid's faces, "meshky" is mostly just shouted as they walk by, as you drive by them when they are walking along the road (most popular), or when you talk about them with your friends.

Also used as "meshk" for short.
"Ey! Check it meshk"
