N*gerbollen

DV, 4:38, 2007
A N*gerboll (transl. N-word ball) is a Swedish pastry, a chocolate ball. In colloquial speech, “n*gerboll” is a common word for a chocolate ball. The use of the word is closely tied to discussions of “traditions” in Sweden, where people of color and of immigrant backgrounds are expected to tolerate offensive speech because “that’s the way it’s always been”.
