This is actually a belief of my niece, who was about 10 when this little gem was unveiled. She comes from a very overbearing family and is never around non-white individuals. Once, while visiting my family, we all went to a grocery store and my niece happened to see an African-American woman breast feeding her baby. Very loudly, so everyone can hear, she asks if bl*ck women make chocolate milk, since they aren't like us. I was never so embarrassed in that store.
