Is choc ice the new N-word? | Dilichi Onuzo

PUBLISHED July 17, 2012

I don't think I've heard the words choc ice used this much outside a Mr Whippy ice cream van. Rio Ferdinand, hitherto the aggrieved but mostly silent big brother of Anton Ferdinand who was ? according to Judge Riddle ? not racially abused, broke his silence on the matter to agree with a tweet that called Ashley Cole a choc ice. Choc ices, like coconuts, Oreos and Bounty chocolate bars, are black on the outside and white on the inside. Rio Ferdinand has now been deemed a racist.
