    There “isn’t a more vile, negative word than the N-word and for him to leave it there as long as he did before, I hear, that they finally painted over it, is just plain insensitive to a lot of black people in this country,” Cain said on “Fox News Sunday.”

    We both have different opinions...and thats fine...

    No doubt, and I just listened to it again, and I am wrong, In the FOX interview he made just that short statement you offered, and I don't know who is feeding him that crap, but I am sure that as this becomes clearer, should he be wrong, he will let this person go....I think it may have been on of the other shows where he said "If"...And that is what he should hve stuck to.

    Nobody's pretending, dude. The information on the use of the term "niggerhead" is all over the internet. If people insist upon finding nonsense reasons to incite hateful issues then they will. This is an idiotic reason to lambast somebody. It's a crappy name, but he didn't pick it. When the name was selected it described the area accurately based on the common uses I quoted (that came from Wikipedia, btw).

    If nobody knows who did it in the first place and the context for which the word was used it is not an issue. It seems pretty clear that neither Perry or his father put it there. When I first saw the term I didn't know what it meant but had the feeling it was a proper word that is just not commonly used anymore for the obvious reasons. 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 predict due to this horrible, awful, just clearly evil thing that Perry has done that...

    Those who were going to vote for him prior to it still will

    Those who weren't going to vote for him prior to it still will

    Moderator's Warning:
    As a note, we're dealing with what is obviously a sensative word here. Lets use some common sense when doing so people, thank you.

    Antique rocks? They're still making new ones?

    He didn't name it and has spoken against the name and called the name offensive. I see no reason to fault the man for hunting in a place that formerly had a racist name and I see no reason to not believe him when he says the name is offensive to him. This is a silly non-issue that is only meant to distract from the real issues.
