In Ron Paul's newsletter, a ghost writer (recently identified (http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthread.php?348345-Ron-Paul-Racist-Newsletters-Ben-Swann-Report)) injected his own venom into less than 1% of them at a time Dr. Paul was between Congressional seats and hard at work at his medical practice of delivering babies (to which no one ever claimed he did anything but an exceptional job at, mind you).

Since this is all the Power's That Be have on Dr. Paul, they took this and exploded it, trying to imply Dr. Paul is everything this ONE ghost writer injected into the newsletters, which was very unfortunate and Dr. Paul has disavowed these remarks repeatedly and took moral responsibility for it happening under his name.

Ron Paul supports the rights of the individual and is a champion of civil and economic liberties, both that go against racism. Dr. Paul is against the failed drug war, which harms minorities the most. Dr. Paul changed his stance to be against the death penalty (one of the few stances he's ever changed) because he saw how it was biased against minorities.

Here's a good video (with a sarcastic title!) that shows Dr. Paul himself speak out against racism and defacto racist polices:

Here's a video that shows what Dr. Paul did for an interracial couple who were being discriminated against at the hospital:

Here's a video of a collection of clips of African Americans and their support for Dr. Paul:

Ron Paul is also against U.S. foreign intervention, which has historically been military action against poorer minority countries. Dr. Paul believes in diplomacy, trade, and good will instead of force.

They're also trying to claim he's a racist because he would not have voted for the Civil Rights Act, but they fail to understand his reasoning behind it. He is against the Jim Crow laws, but the CRA was a blatent violation of private property rights, in that the gov't can tell a business who they must serve. Ron Paul believes that was overreach by the gov't because the free market would have sorted that out eventually, through the court of public opinion. In other words, customers wouldn't patronize a racist business.

I like to say he's for Civil Rights, just not bill H.R. 7152 that is about government force, even if this government force is well intended.

Its typical, in politics, when the opposition is desperate, to call their opponents "racists".

Ron Paul is the most anti-racist candidate running - period. Racism is a collectivist idea, and Ron Paul is anything but a collectivist.
