Re: Ron Paul
This piece doesn't confirm he's a racist at all. When you listen to it he clearly states that in his opinion the civil war was a battle over states rights verses federal authority. He completely removes the racial aspect to it by denying that the war was fought over slavery even though it was used as an excuse which gave Lincoln a huge political advantage and denied other countries that likely would have come to the souths aid from doing so because slavery was already outlawed in their country. Now you might disagree with RP on that, but his position as stated in this piece does not confirm he was/is a racist.
