After GOP Presidential candidate Herman Cain criticized fellow candidate Rick Perry over his property which had a sign saying “n-word head ranch,” conservatives have been criticizing Cain for “pulling the race card.”

After the controversy ensued, Cain told ABC News, “I think that it shows a lack of sensitivity for a long time of not taking that word off of that rock and renaming the place.”

Rick Perry Owned Shooting Range Formerly Called “N**erHead”

Mother Jones reports:

You might have anticipated that Perry would face a firestorm for being associated with the property, but it’s Cain whose remarks are drawing the most criticism from the right.
