Republican Presidential hopeful Ron Paul has been under intense heat the past few days for documentation that questions his views on Blacks.
The documented evidence came from a racist newsletter published in the late 1980's and early 1990's that Ron authored.
Reports published under Ron Paul's name in the newsletters were Ron Paul's Political Report, Ron Paul's Freedom Report, the Ron Paul Survival Report and the Ron Paul Investment Letter.
The newsletter contained racist statements that have gotten a lot of attention.
One of the statements found in the newsletter was "Order was only restored in L.A. when it came time for the blacks to pick up their welfare checks." It also reffered to Martin Luther King Jr. as "the world-class philanderer who beat up his paramours" and who "seduced underage girls and boys."
Ron has previously said that he did not know of the publications until 2001, however, a video published in 1995 shows him discussing the newsletter to an interviewer.
Reuters has also uncovered direct-mail solicitation for Paul's political and investment newsletters 20 years ago warning of a "coming race war in our big cities" and of a "federal-homosexual cover-up" to play down the impact of AIDS.
As reported by Reuters:
The eight-page letter, which appears to carry Paul's signature at the end, also warns that the U.S. government's redesign of currency to include different colors - a move aimed at thwarting counterfeiters - actually was part of a plot to allow the government to track Americans using the "new money."
The letter urges readers to subscribe to Paul's newsletters so that he could "tell you how you can save yourself and your family" from an overbearing government.
