A man who gained national attention for his fight against the feds refuses to apologize for racist remarks.

Cliven Bundy saw strong support with his stand against the Bureau of Land Management for what he sees as his right to graze cattle on public land.

Now the ranchers confused why people are upset over these viral comments: "I want to tell you one more thing i know about the negro. They abort their young children, they put their young men in jail, because they never learned how to pick cotton."

Bundy says he didn't say that as a racial thing.

He claims he was just commenting on the effect of what he calls government over-reach in black communities.
