This is one of the few times you'll find me agreeing with the NAACP, but this man is unquestionably right. You can find plenty of politically-incorrect or so-called "racist" opinions on the Right, but not from Ron Paul. Such issues aren't even on his radar screen and for those truly familiar with Paul, it's absurd to suggest otherwise. From the Lewrockwell.com blog:

NAACP President Defends Ron Paul Against "Recent Smear Attempts"
The Austin, Texas NAACP president, Nelson Linder, who has known Ron Paul for 20 ears "unequivocally dismissed charges that the Congressman was a racist in light of recent smear attempts, and said the reason for him being attacked was that he was a threat to the establishment."
"Dr. Paul has . . . praised Martin Luther King as his hero on many occasions spanning back 20 years," the NAACP president said.
