It sounds like his family rented it for many years, but did not actually own it. That said, it also looks like the name, painted on a stone at the entrance, remained for some time (years?) after they began to rent it.
I don’t give a fuck that somebody painted the word ‘nigger’ on a rock on land that would years later be leased by Perry- paint that would later be poorly covered up by somebody else at some indeterminate point.
This is stupider than the $200 Edwards haircut scandal.
This is stupider than Obama’s pastor-whoever-the-fuck scandal.
It’s amusing to me that people would actually care about these things.
GODDAMNIT I hate politics SO MUCH it makes my bones sore.
Really? You don’t give a fuck that a potential politician was so blind to the issues facing our country that he/she couldn’t recognize the divisive nature of Niggerhead? How about kikenose or wetback swamp? Is there anything that would offend you? How about if Obama went to Cracker Island or Fuck Whitey Mountain?
If Obama went to Cracker Island or Fuck Whitey Mountain I would laugh my ass off, and probably die of heart failure. I actually want him to go to those places on his last day in office now, just to freak people out, and make me laugh.
Oh, and Qin. Some people have certainly not forgiven Obama for Reverend Wright, and even those who did did so only after a month-long freak-out from Republicans. And I still can’t believe Robert Byrd was elected, and then reelected, and reelected. It’s disgusting.
Byrd apologized for his past long, long before you were born. Obama did not associate with a “pardoned terrorist”. Bill Ayers was never tried, much less convicted or pardoned, for acts committed when Obama was half your age. Rev. Wright was a Marine medic who at one time attended LBJ. Just because you heard one quote out of context replayed endlessly on your favorite news network does not mean that he “blamed America for everything.”
If Rick Perry built a ranch and named it “Niggerhead,” I would be absolutely furious.
If Rick Perry bought a ranch named “Niggerhead,” and didn’t rename it, I’d be pretty pissed.
If Rick Perry visited a ranch named “Niggerhead,” I’d be very displeased.
If Rick Perry visited a ranch that used to be named “Niggerhead,” but they claim they renamed it, except it still has all these signs that say “Niggerhead” everywhere, I’d be annoyed.
By the time you get down to Rick Perry visiting a ranch that used to be named “Niggerhead,” but they renamed it, except instead of taking down the old signs, they just painted over them, I’m pretty well into “don’t give a fuck” territory.
