It could have meant a lot of things but I have never heard before. It is kind of like the word "niggardly". It's just a old word not commonly used.
    I agree with that...Perry and the rock are a non issue...the issue for me is Cain using it to garner the black vote...he was in effect race baiting

    My question is ...

    Why was the rock not removed long ago? Or at least sandblasted?

    Not particularly interesting. In fact, entirely predictable. Right wing Republicans and racists see nothing wrong with the term 'niggerhead'. Everybody else finds it racist and offensive. What's entertaining about that?

    Because down in Texas, that sort of stuff is considered humor.

    Let's just set it straight. Perry doesn't like the name, has said he finds it offensive. He didn't name it, and no matter who did, the rock's been painted over. There are a lot of reasons not to like Rick Perry, but this isn't one of them.

    I'll bet virtually every member of that hunting club was a democrat. If you want to hear people toss around the "N" word, go hang out with democrats in the south and with democrats in NE urban regions, union halls, etc.

    Democrats are, by definition, bigots. Identity politics is the byproduct of bigotry. Maybe Perry saw the light and decided to leave the party that truly believes a black man can not take care of himself.

    When was the name actually painted over? Was the offensive name painted over well enough the first time, not to be able to clearly read the name the first time? How many subsequent paintings occurred, and when could you not actually read the offensive name? What various dates has Rick Perry given recently for the time when the rock was painted over? Did he mention the date from which the offensive name on the rock could not be read? Does Rick Perry know how to use paint remover? Do you want someone as president who is unable to go to a hardware store and buy some paint remover?



    "But the name of this particular parcel did not change for years after it became associated with Rick Perry, first as a private citizen, then as a state official and finally as Texas governor. Some locals still call it that. As recently as this summer, the slablike rock — lying flat, the name still faintly visible beneath a coat of white paint — remained by the gated entrance to the camp.

    When asked last week, Perry said the word on the rock is an “offensive name that has no place in the modern world.”

    But how, when or whether he dealt with it when he was using the property is less clear and adds a dimension to the emerging biography of Perry, who quickly moved into the top tier of Republican presidential candidates when he entered the race in August."

    The issue could be how far Rick Perry is willing to stretch the truth, under what circumstances. Getting caught telling white lies, or partial half-truths, is not a good start for a candidate. A President needs to carefully craft lies.
