Meaning of chocolate[change | change source]
- The color chocolate is a color that like the color rose represents love because often people give chocolate, just like they give roses, to people that they love, whether romantically or as a gift from a parent to a child.
- The color chocolate represents African Americans. For example, in African American slang, the city Washington, D.C. is called Chocolate City because of its overwhelmingly African American population.
