When asked about being called “Chocolate” and whether it was offensive to her, actress Tika Sumpter answered:
“I think it’s a term of endearment. I don’t think it’s anything negative. Chocolate’s my favorite thing to eat. So I can’t live without it. And I know when Mike Epps says it, he’s just like ‘emph! Look, if Tyler Perry wants to pay me the money to call me ‘chocolate’ and be an ass, I’m cool with it.”
I feel the same way, having been called chocolate quite a few times myself… except I would offer my name callers the chance to take a bite out this big ‘ol DIP! But oddly enough I had no takers :/ but this isn’t about me, complexion, or people calling fine, dark-skinned women chocolate. No sir this is about Tika… delicious, cocoa brown Tika (does a Hail Mary). Just see for yourself gentlemen… enjoy!
