The Pot Calling the Kettle Racist

This dead dog won't hunt. Of course when it comes to the whole issue of what Ron Paul's newsletters had said, the average Ron Paul supporter has no problem just accepting that someone else did it and Dr. Paul can maintain a profit stream and ignorance to it all at the same time. That is the type of ignorance of the real world that the Ron Paul detractors have with him, and it is just an amazingly glaring example of it. Well that's fine I don't take them very seriously because they don't listen to anyone else's opinion, but I refuse to allow Ron Paul to simply call the American system inherently racist, as he does now. The whole "I know you are but what am I" method of argument got old somewhere around 5th grade and I shouldn't have to endure it from the Messiah of Libertarianism.
You can't make broad generalizations about how there are as many blacks and whites that commit crime and then switch it over to a percentage argument when you talk about how many of them end up in prison. Simple math eliminates such foolish debates as the black population of America makes up somewhere between 15% and 20% of the population so accepting the criminal base as equal amounts then changes the percentages quite a bit. Paul and his people then switch the argument around to how white America forces black America into these scenarios. It's not a very Libertarian argument to start committing racial politics, but the Progressives have always had a high level of contempt for minorities in their words and a high level of understanding in their rhetoric. Woodrow Wilson would be very proud of the propaganda that comes from this man's mouth.
