    What isn't a racial slur now anyway? The overly sensitive race baiters need a smack to the face with pure reality.

    "you're not open minded enough"

    is about to open a rift in the space time continuum.

    ... kind of odd that somebody from Britain and Canada, who are constantly accused as being 'too liberal' would also be accused of not being open minded enough.

    Got nothing to do with race. Everybody hated cotton-picking so much it served as a euphemism for curse words.

    There are folk songs dedicated to how much picking cotton sucks.

    Wearing it, however, does not.

    Where's the outrage here, I actually feel this is a worse mistake of words then Dr. Laura, ESPECIALLY in the first video because Sanchez did immediately apologise for what he said, but I really wonder where he thought it was a good idea to say that in the first place...
    I'll give you a pass because you don't know but it is an very common southern expression.

    Example, "He's driving me out of my cotton picking mind."
