Republican presidential hopeful Herman Cain criticized the name of a hunting camp once leased by Gov. Rick Perry’s family as “just plain insensitive.”
The name of the camp — “Niggerhead” — was first reported by the Washington Post on Saturday. The paper said the name was painted on a rock at the entrance of the property.
Perry reportedly began hosting fellow lawmakers, friends and supporters at the secluded ranch early in his career.
“My reaction is, that’s just very insensitive,” Cain told Fox. “[There] isn’t a more vile, negative word than the N-word, and for him to leave it there as long as he did, before I hear that they finally painted over it, is just plain insensitive to a lot of black people in this country.”
