Remember Cliven Bundy? He's the guy whose standoff with the federal government over grazing rights briefly became a cause celebre for tea party supporters. That is, until Bundy was caught on tape making comments suggesting African Americans were better off as slaves.

Well, here Bundy is in support of a third-party candidate for Congress in Nevada.

"I know that black folks have had a hard time with, uh, slavery," Bundy says in the Web video for Kamau Bakari, an Independent American party candidate against Rep. Dina Titus (D-Nev.). "And, you know, the government was in on it."

Bundy recently joined the Independent American party.

He and Bakari then exchange some comments about political correctness and how people should be able to say whatever they want.

Bundy adds: "It's almost like black folks think white folks owe them something."

Titus, for what it's worth, isn't considered vulnerable this year -- to Bakari or any of her challengers.
