Paul's story changes on racial comments

Some issues of the newsletters included racist, anti-Israel or anti-gay comments, including a 1992 newsletter in which he said 95% of black men in Washington "are semi-criminal or entirely criminal."

Paul told TheDallas Morning News in 1996 that the contents of his newsletters were accurate but needed to be taken in context.

A 1992 newsletter about Washington referred to Martin Luther King Jr. as "the world-class philanderer who beat up his paramours."

Another newsletter about AIDS said people suffering from the disease should not be allowed to eat in restaurants "because AIDS can be transmitted by saliva," a claim that is not supported by medical evidence. Paul is a physician.
