Liberty, Life & Opinions : Is Ron Paul Racist?

I heard from a fiend of mine last night that the hacker group anonymous has been attacking RP lately , and if this has anything to do with his recent free market style Technology Manifesto, I would bet things are heating up for him.
The old allegation from his 80's article , titled under his name, but written by independent authors, although signed off by Paul, does seem to sound like bad administering on his part: also, it could be the fact that RP neglected that small business as he was running multiple other small businesses at the time and on top of that working hard to change congress' mind on monetary policy. Final thought, perhaps he goes so far as to allow people to speak their mind, claim the first amendment and all that constitutional stuff we all love :)
I hold no grudge to any being, as we're all human beings, one race, one life, one love, but I have to ask; is Ron Paul's view on people that are black different than those of other skin tones? I want to out this matter to rest so that t can't be used disparagingly ANy longer, on this site, or if need be, we can cite this post for info when and if Paul runs against Obama. No hate to the people in the inner city, but does Paul believe Blacks are a major component in crime and inner city poverty? Or does he believe that is the fault of failed policy, and in fact white, brown, tanned, or darks are all suffering he same impoverish ness? Polite comments would be appreciated, I didn't mean to spark angry debate. I merely want the matter at rest here.

The matter was "put to rest"

5 years ago during the 2008 campaign, and it's a very bad idea for a newbie to come here at this time and bring that subject up.

RP is fully vetted.
Are you?

Down Voted You..

just for the fact that you even listed this topic. Have a nice day!!!!!

Are you serious?

Paul didn't "sign off" on those newsletters. Right there you have shown yourself to be a troll.

We don't view people in groups, just individuals. You may want to tell your buddies at Reason Magazine to look into that philosophy.

"In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot."--Mark Twain

He has helped people from all backgrounds

It is not difficult to find out if you want to investigate. It is just such an easy accusation to make and is open to many different interpretations that it is hard to prove or disprove.

I would say that what was in the newsletters was mildly racist however others would say it was highly racist (although all of us black, white and other would have said sweeping statements about our own and other races even if we do not admit it publicly).

Either way he did not write it first-hand and has rejected it so there is no case to argue.

Lord Acton, Lord Chief Justice of England, 1875 - "The issue which has swept down the centuries and which will have to be fought sooner or later is the People v. The Banks."

No, Ron Paul is not Pre-judice. He does not judge ahead.

Ron Paul does not pre-judge people. Ron Paul has helped black people too as a doctor.

Nope. He's not

You can find...if you google hard enough...the names of the people who wrote those newsletters.
