Russell Westbrook could've diffused the situation. Instead, he said this, "Brian's been here for a while, I know him personally, but obviously what he said wasn't OK. We all understand that."

Westbrook is an asshole as a person. A great player but a shit heel to deal with.

I've never thought of that term having racial overtones. A huge segment of the South - White AND Black - made a (somewhat meager) living picking cotton.

Don't get me wrong, "Cotton Picker" can be used as a derogatory term - as in "You're just a dumb ol' cotton picker". But I've heard it used by whites on whites more than anyone else.

Agree, and I dont think i've ever heard anybody under the age of 50 say it.

There was a scene in Barney Miller where the detectives didn't want to go on a call with Fish so Wojo suggested they do "eeny meeny miny mo".  There was a pause and then Harris said, "so, I guess it'll be me."
 
Humor, humor about our differences, remember when such a thing was possible?

Thankfully yes. Those after us won't.

I had a guy who worked for me for a few years who was Malayan. He knew everything about the security risks of computers. He actually showed my wife how her Myspace (dating myself here) could be corrupted by corrupting it himself. Anyway, he was funny as Hell. We had to meet at a prospect's office who was only 10 minutes from where our office was (rare) and I needed to bring him.

We had to take separate cars for some reason. I said, "see you in 10 minutes". His response was "I am Asian. Better make it 15". LMAO.

On the other side, I had someone come to me and complain about a joke someone else told at the expense of the Irish. The lady complaining was of Italian descent and the guy who told the joke (the oldest one about the Irish) was clearly Irish. I asked her what the big deal was and she lectured me for 20 minutes. I was actually surprised she didn't find a reason to sue when she quit.
