What's in a name...for your favored hunting camp? In the case of Texas Governor Rick Perry, it could be a bit of lingering racism.What more do you need to know about this man? The word on that rock says it all. Not even Cain can't get around the word on that rock.
Gov. Perry's campaign is pushing back today against a story in the Washington Post today about his West Texas hunting camp where the governor has hosted lawmakers and friends, which for many years was called "Niggerhead."
The name, painted for many years on a large rock sitting at the entrance to the 1072-acre property, was reportedly used for the area near Clear Fork on the Brazos River which the Perry family has used for hunting since the early 1980s. But the painted rock, and the name of the area, remained long after Perry and his father began using the area for hunting trips with friends.
