Is the phrase "Jive Turkey" offensive?

I think it's a funny thing to say, in a sort of 70's throwback way, and completely harmless. My girlfriend thinks that it is innappropriate for me (a 27 y/o white male) to say because of its origin. Is this like me saying "my nigga" (which I'm sort of uncomfortable even typing), or is she being a square?
