Mail readers love to bash Naomi Campbell
for some reason:
Cambell said "It's upsetting to be described as chocolate..." but I don't see how or why. Black people of certain shades have skin colour that looks very much like chocolate. I personally think chocolate is sweet and delicious... and very attractive, too. I'd have been more offended by the 'diva' reference! She doesn't look anything like Elton John, does she?

OK, Rollo, how about if we compared your daughter to a slab of meat. Does that make it easier?
And why can none of these cretins spell Campbell? Izz it because she is black?
Cambell needs to check the Oxford dictionary on what racism means. Racism means when someone ,makes a derogatory remark about someone's race implying they are from an inferior race of people. It has nothing to do with colour of skin.

OED definition of racism: "(Belief in, adherence to, or advocacy of) the theory that all members of each race possess characteristics, abilities, qualities etc specific to that race … prejudice, discrimination, antagonism based on this."

It all started to go downhill when Robersons took their Golly Wog from the jam jars...

FFS. And it's RoberTsons, with a T, you illiterate cunt.
Naturally when someone with half a brain comes along, the red arrows fly:
Oh and since when would you use a white person to advertisedark chocolate and then compare that white person to that chocolate? This would never happen. Neither would a white person be compared to white chocolate, because only non white people have the indignity of being used in this way, but we are never allowed to mention this for fear of insulting DM readers!
