(blackmediaSCOOP) The women on “The View” had an interesting back and forth Monday about whether or not Herman Cain should have used the n-word as he talked about Rick Perry.
Cain on Sunday called it “insulting” that the family of Rick Perry leased a hunting camp with a racially charged name well into the 1980s and possibly even later.
According to a Washington Post, the hunting camp leased by the Texas governor was branded with the name “N*ggerhead.” The word — reportedly on a rock at the entrance of the 1,070-acre parcel — has been painted over and the camp renamed.
Perry has said it was changed in 1983 or 1984, but others suggest it may not have been covered until later — with one person estimating for the Post that it was as late as 2008.
