Lou Dobbs Calls Condi A “Cotton Picker”

Posted in CNN by just Me on April 1, 2008

I’m not a big Lou Dobbs fan, but I don’t see the big deal. I think he was about to say “cotton pickin”, which has racial overtones only if you’re looking for them. That’s an expression that’s the equivalent of “gosh dang “or “goll dern” or any other phrase from the rural south. Besides, both whites and blacks have picked cotton. I don’t know of anyone who hears that phrase (not that you ever hear it anymore) who thinks it refers to African-Americans.
