Statement by Rev. Al Sharpton Re: Governor Rick Perry’s Texas Hunting Spot

New York, NY–(ENEWSPF)–Sunday, October 02, 2011.  “The Washington Post story revealing that Texas Governor Rick Perry hunted and hosted lawmakers at a hunting camp called Niggerhead is alarming and displays a new height in racial insensitivity in national politics.  Mr. Perry should immediately fully explain how his family rented from a place named after such an obvious racist term or he should withdrawal from the race. He is either blindly insensitive or hopelessly unaware of where he spends his time. Either way it makes one wonder if he is ready for prime time and certainly whether he is ready for the White House.”
