Daily Show piece on Rick Perry's family ranch called Niggerhead and other racist names for places in the United States

Moderators don't edit my post. If it is the actual name of a place in the USA then why edit reality??? Just because the truth is offensive to some people, doesn't make it right to ignore the truth.

Rick Perry will never recover

Rick Perry will never recover from this...it's over. This story is all over the television and internet. People who don't even follow politics are talking about it.

Thank you, Lord Jesus!

Cliff meets Rick Perry. Rick Perry meets cliff.

"Camp Niggerhead?"

Political suicide.

GAME OVER

Never be afraid to ask simple questions.

helps Romney

Perry's downfall helps Romney. Each of us must work to beat Romney in our home state.

Romney did not win a single

Romney did not win a single southern state in the 2008 primary races.

He won't even win in Iowa in 2011...

Romney's "strong," areas are in the northeast, and Utah. That's about it.

Romney doesn't have a chance of winning in the south.

Mormons and Southern Baptists do not mix in politics.

Romney has Obamacare hanging over his neck.

Never be afraid to ask simple questions.

This is not a "race card" pullin' thing whatsoever

This is a: what will it do to Rick Perry's campaign thing.

I didn't create the story, I haven't endorsed the sign, the story has flight because of what it is. Watch!

I just don't know why

when commentators don't want to say the word, they just don't show a photo of, let's say, Jada Smith going down on Will. Maybe people would find that less offensive? It certainly is another interpretation of the word that people might find less inciteful?

For another funny take:

When I was a kid

I remember a nice black man called "Nigger Red". When told by someone who was offended by the name that he shouldn't allow people to call him that he said "mind your own damn business".

It is sad to see that there are so many Paulers who are so quick to use the race card against Perry when Ron Pauls newsletter was much more of and indictment if you want to push the subject of racism.

actually, it is sad to see another troll . .

trying to equate something that got by one candidates eyes
WITH
something that another candidate's eyes saw time and time and time and time again . . . . and did nothing about.

Ya. when obama did this YOU cry foul, but its ok for Perry?

Make me laugh hypocrit!

What the HECK does this have to do with Ron anyways?

Hypocrit?

You apparently don't understand the point which is that it IS hypocritical to be against using the race card for one and not another and the double standard for which the card is used or not used. If you would read a little more you would understand that. So I'm not a hypocrit. Let the media bury Perry over this but why do we have to stoop down with them.

Perry has NO INTERGRITY WHATSOEVER.

How this piece of trash even shows up for a debate and NOT THINK some of the many skeletons buried in his closet won't be unearthed is beyond me, yet he persists. If you watched the Texas gubernatorial debates before the last Texas Governors election all you saw was "Rick Perry squirm" I didn't think anyone had less class and integrity than Romney but Perry has won that title hands down.

Just one last kick in the nuts, then a final deathblow

ecorob's picture

if i put that over my door...

and then run for president, what should I expect?

to get the black vote?

the newsletter was NOT written by Dr. Paul.

your arguement is flawed

its 'cos I owe ya, my young friend...
Rockin' the FREE world in Tennessee since 1957!
9/11 Truth.

Perry didn't put the sign there.

It was already there. If anything Paul should've been more responsible for what went into HIS newsletter. And neither incident is as bad as Obama going to a racist church but no body cares about that because he's black huh.

Do you think Ron Paul "ok's" all the literature that is sent

via standard mail and email concerning "Campaign for Liberty"
It's one thing to name your homestead / ranch / farm..etc using
vulgar titles it's quite another to have something published your not even aware of...Nobody you've been around here for what 6 weeks ? I think your motives are a little shady.

Just one last kick in the nuts, then a final deathblow

WTF!?

"It is sad to see that there are so many Paulers who are so quick to use the race card against Perry when Ron Pauls newsletter was much more of and indictment if you want to push the subject of racism."

Are you saying Ron is a racist over that disproved newsletter written years ago by a rogue staffer? Get real, senor. Don't get me started. I'm getting a little tired of the trolling...

You misunderstand.

Their is no more reason to call Perry a racist over this than their is in calling Paul a racist over comments made in his newsletter. You need to learn what racism is because neither of these things constitute racism. Yet just because it's the "other guy" then it's ok to play the race card.

Point taken.

I for one am not looking to

I for one am not looking to use the race card against Perry. My motive for making this post is to raise the issue of race in the US in 2011.

For anyone interested in learning more on the subject of race, PBS did an excellent program a few years back.

It shows in detail how the entire notion of race is an illusion and reflective of a lack of understanding of the true nature of reality. Just as humans used to believe that the earth was flat, through science we now know that the earth is a sphere and that the concept of race has no biological basis.

I was just speaking in general

and didn't mean to suggest you were playing the race card. But as far as your other comment goes I say that you are scientificaly and biblicaly wrong about no difference in race.

Don't care about what the

Don't care about what the bible, koran or torah have to say about race, so no argument there.

I would be interested in reading any current peer-reviewed literature that supports a biological basis for race.

Are you a scientist? What training have you had in science? I ask this not as a personal attack on you, but because most people are so poorly educated in science they are not able to understand scientific findings. To that point, most well trained scientists are unwilling to give their opinion on any findings outside of their specific field because they understand the difficulty.

You can start with this one, it's a long to the real world..... http://www.eugenics.net/papers/Gottfredson.htm ....please read

Social vs. Natural Science

Sam,

Thank you for the referred paper.

Linda Gottfredson is a highly respected socioligist, that is to say her expertise in in social science. Although an important branch of science, the study of society, which is the focus of social science, is not a natural science. Thus when I stated, "It shows in detail how the entire notion of race is an illusion and reflective of a lack of understanding of the true nature of reality. Just as humans used to believe that the earth was flat, through science we now know that the earth is a sphere and that the concept of race has no biological basis." I was referring to race as having scientific support within the physical world, which is the domain of the natural sciences, including biology(genetics), chemistry, phyiscs, etc.

the name might be deceiving,

the name might be deceiving, but eugenics.net is a great site, you will find other information regarding race (from the point of view of natural and social science). Perhaps you have heard of James Watson "father of DNA science". He had a few things to say about racial diversity.

I ask you the same question

I ask you the same question that I asked the other poster, are you a scientist? What training do you have in the natural sciences? What is your area of expertise either within or outside of the sciences?

Please don't think I am trying to be offensive I simply wish to know what you scientific literacy is.

Am I accredited? No. That's

Am I accredited? No. That's why I referred you to the likes of James Watson and others. Good luck in your search for truth, I hope you have an open enough mind for that. To use a politically correct PBS tv show to prove your point will not do.

Anyone else knows that the N word was used to describe more than black individuals. It had a meaning long before .
