Ron Paul's popularity is starting to become more apparent, and in the new found spotlight, a lot of dirt from Ron Paul's past is being revealed. Will documents from Ron Paul's past affect him in the current presidential race?

Ron Paul has stated that the words are not his own but rather his name was attached to the newsletters. The Atlantic has highlighted a few of the key quotes that are causing the controversy.

"Given the inefficiencies of what DC laughingly calls the criminal justice system, I think we can safely assume that 95 percent of the black males in that city are semi-criminal or entirely criminal."

"We are constantly told that it is evil to be afraid of black men, it is hardly irrational."

After the Los Angeles riots, one article in a newsletter claimed, "Order was only restored in L.A. when it came time for the blacks to pick up their welfare checks."

One referred to Martin Luther King Jr. as "the world-class philanderer who beat up his paramours" and who "seduced underage girls and boys."

Another referred to Barbara Jordan, a civil rights activist and congresswoman as "Barbara Morondon," the "archetypical half-educated victimologist."
