  5. Card 5 of 11

    What did Cliven Bundy say about "the Negro"?

    At a press conference attended by New York Times reporter Adam Nagourney, Bundy held forth on race in America at some length.

    "I want to tell you one more thing I know about the Negro," he said. Mr. Bundy recalled driving past a public-housing project in North Las Vegas, "and in front of that government house the door was usually open and the older people and the kids - and there is always at least a half a dozen people sitting on the porch - they didn't have nothing to do. They didn't have nothing for their kids to do. They didn't have nothing for their young girls to do.

    "And because they were basically on government subsidy, so now what do they do?" he asked. "They abort their young children, they put their young men in jail, because they never learned how to pick cotton. And I've often wondered, are they better off as slaves, picking cotton and having a family life and doing things, or are they better off under government subsidy? They didn't get no more freedom. They got less freedom."

    The comments were quickly rejected by some of Bundy's most ardent supporters. A spokesman for Nevada Senator Dean Heller told the NYT that Heller "completely disagrees with Mr. Bundy's appalling and racist statements, and condemns them in the most strenuous way."
