Also, here's a quick definition of "Grape-y". Whenever someone is closely associated with dark blue or purple, they could be considered "Grape-y". It could be in the clothes they wear, the color of their attacks, or even their skin color. Either way, it's all Grape-y.
For whatever reason, colors on the spectrum between blue and purple are often associated with Black characters in fantasy and fiction. My guess is that the influence from dignified literary works like Raisin in the Sun or The Color Purple have planted the idea in some people's minds that "purple = classy Black people".
Or maybe it's all because of Purple Rain. Regardless, it's definitely a trend, one that was way bigger in the 80s and 90s, but is still kicking around today (as you see in the chart).
