Campaign 2012: Rick Perry's N-Word Rock

"Rock, Perry, Scissors" [Published 10/06/11]
When the Washington Post published an article about a certain rock discovered on Rick Perry's family hunting grounds, accusations of racism abounded. The rock, etched with the word, "Niggerhead," was carry-over from a time many years earlier when the area was commonly referred to in that offensive name. At some point, the word had been painted over, but still remained detectible. 

Now, I am no fan of Rick Perry by any stretch, but I thought this was a petty political ploy, as childish as the old "Rock, Paper, Scissors game.
