Santorum Clarifies "Black People" Remark

Rick Santorum makes a compassionate statement but gets roasted for it.

"I don't want to make black peoples' lives better by giving them somebody else's money," Mr. Santorum said. "I want to give them the opportunity to go out and earn the money and provide for themselves and for their families."

Asked about the comment by reporters Monday night, Mr. Santorum said he is proud of the work he has done for inner-city populations and said he didn't intend to cause controversy.

"You look at what I said, is I believe every American should not be dependent on government," he said.
