THE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT — If I were a minor, my family would have had to drag me to any hunting camp called CAMP NIGGERHEAD! Clearly Gov. Perry and I don’t see things the same way. As a politician, Perry should have been especially astute about this, especially in a state with a large black population.
Gov. Perry is now trying to manipulate the time line — claiming that the sign was painted over decades earlier than facts uncovered and reported in an investigation by the Washington Post.
MSNBC: “[Ray] Sullivan [Perry’s communication’s director] said the governor’s father, Ray, painted over the name in the early 1980s. That conflicts with the accounts of seven sources who spoke to the [Washington] Post on the condition of anonymity. They claim the offensive name was visible during the 1980s and 1990s, when Perry launched his political career, with one source saying the word could be seen as late as 2008.”
