  "Senator [Rick] Santorum is perpetuating a thoroughly false and destructive racial stereotype in a desperate attempt to score political points. He is appealing to the lowest common denominator within the electorate and quite frankly should be ashamed of himself." — National Urban League President and former New Orleans mayor Marc Morial, denouncing GOP presidential candidate Santorum's disparagement of public assistance by saying he didn't want to "improve black people's lives with other people's money." Santorum later walked back his statement, saying he "condemns all forms of racism" and noting his friendships with former Republican National Committee chairman Michael Steele and former U.S. Rep. J.C. Watts, both of whom are black.
