31. Wow - somebody please explain how this makes Perry racist...
When my Dad joined the lease in 1983, he took the first opportunity he had to paint over the offensive word on the rock during the 4th of July holiday, Perry said in his initial response. It is my understanding that the rock was eventually turned over to further obscure what was originally written on it.

Perry said that he was not with his father when he painted over the name but that he agreed with the decision.

In response to follow-up questions, Perry gave a more detailed account.

My mother and father went to the lease and painted the rock in either 1983 or 1984, Perry wrote. This occurred after I paid a visit to the property with a friend and saw the rock with the offensive word. After my visit I called my folks and mentioned it to them, and they painted it over during their next visit.
