    You know, even I’m beginning to think this whole thing is already getting old. If it hadn’t been for Hermain Cain’s remarks on the subject, I wouldn’t have thought it was worth any commentary.

    Mind you we don’t need this ‘toon to know that Perry’s a rockhead.

    The more the press and media uncovers about current Texas Governor Rick Perry, the more the G.O.P. gets “tarred by the same brush” since Rick Perry is becoming the face of the G.O.P. by its core-adherents. The American people will not forget by November, 2012, which political party projects pride and prejudice and racist as the banner it flies under and which party is FOR ALL THE PEOPLE !

    Oliphant, I am not a Perry fan, and will not vote for him for president, no matter how far he goes. But this attempt at a political cartoon is — how shall I say it? — just stupid.

    There is no insight, and name calling is what kids in kindergarten do. And you wrote a racial epithet which is not excusable simply because you draw a line through it.

    Have you thought, old fellow, that you might be out of ideas, and maybe need to hang it up before you get run out of the column?

    Niggerhead is a loggers term referring to a large rock jutting out of a road.

    Niggerhead Mountain near Burnet, TX has been renamed. So have other mountains in California and elsewhere. The pejorative reference is not recent. It dates to a time when the word Nigger was a regular neutral noun in the American vernacular. Still used. It derives from the Latin word for black. It should be no more pejorative than the English word, black. I have lived long enough to have used Negro, colored, black, African-American, nigger, nigra, nigga, and ‘…my friend…’ I have read in American folk songs, ‘darky’, but never used it out of the songs. Surprised I was in 1960 to hear a black person refer to ‘honky’ as a pejorative for white people. I was called a ‘Pollock’ by a black employee who was enraged at his failure to be promoted. Honky was a pejorative for Hungarian.
