I still can't get past the fact that this was the 'official' name of a place, anywhere. I guess it is just further proof of the lower base of racists in America. I'm sure that if this place was officially named 'niggerhead' mountain, it is only one of MANY places of the kind in America.

There are locations bearing the name of the 'N-word' all over the nation. For instance: The famous Camptown Races were run in Wyoming County located in Northeas PENNSYLVANIA!! I know. Like me, you thought those ladies with the twirling umbrellas were 'southern belles'. Wrong!!!! And here's the 'kicker'. Stephen Foster was a Pennsylvania native. He was called 'The Pennsylvania Troubadour'. And....guess what is 'right down the road?? 'Negro Pond' changed from 'Nigger Pond' in the late 90s.
