Perry Critics Defend Him on Camp Name

Even Rick Perry’s critics are coming to his aid in the growing scandal over the racist name of his family’s hunting grounds. Perry “doesn’t have a racist bone in his body,” said Texas Democratic state Rep. Ron Wilson to the Texas Tribune. Democratic Sen. Royce West concurred: “I don’t agree with him on policy issues, but you can point to many things he has done that were sensitive to ethnic minorities.” Perry himself called the camp’s previous title, “N----rhead,” an “offensive name that has no place in the modern world.”
