Jon Stewart Shows Us An Entire Racist Landscape

Rick Perry is arguably in a lot of political trouble over the name of a camp, and with good reason, any use of the ‘n’ word is an unnecessary and offensive relic of an ugly past. Is this sort of racial insensitivity unique to Texas or even the South?
