John Terry Acquitted of Racism Charges

English soccer player John Terry was acquitted by a judge on Friday after being accused of using a racial slur against Anton Ferdinand, who is Black, during a soccer match last fall. Following Terry's aquittal, Ferdinand's brother, Rio, lashed out on Twitter, calling another Black player "choc ice," a derogatory term meaning "black on the outside, white on the inside," after that player tweeted his support for Terry. Rio Ferdinand now faces investigation by the Football Association over whether he will be disciplined for his tweet. (Photo: Bethany Clarke/Getty Images)
