The current speech uproar in England

Derbyshire Police said on Tuesday they are investigating alleged racist comments made on Twitter involving Chelsea player Ashley Cole and Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand.

Cole, who gave evidence at team mate John Terry's racism trial last week, was labeled 'choc-ice' by a Twitter user thought to live in Britain.

The user posted a message to 33-year-old Ferdinand shortly after Terry had been cleared of a racially aggravated public order offence at Westminster Magistrates' Court last week.

Former England captain Terry was accused of abusing Ferdinand's younger brother Anton during a Premier League match between Chelsea and QPR.

"Looks like Ashley Cole's going to be their choc ice," said a tweet directed to Ferdinand.  "Then again he's always been a sell out. Shame on him."

Ferdinand replied with: "I hear you fella! Choc ice is classic! hahahahahahha!!"

The term 'choc-ice' is understood to have racial connotations meaning a person is 'black on the outside' and 'white on the inside


Note that the guy who agreed with the tweet is the one who is in the gun

England has taken all the fun out of being a racist.

In the good ol' U.S. of A., the proper term used to be "Oreo cookie".

But now our President (peace be upon him) blurs the lines because while he claims to be a blank man, he is just as much white as he is black. So using the terminology by the media insisting that Mr. George Zimmerman as "White Hispanic", we must conclude that President Obama be truly characterized as a "White African American".

so concerned about words, little concern for their violent children (actions).
