None of the newsletters CNN found says who wrote them, but each was published under Paul's name between his stints as a U.S. congressman from Texas.

I'd hope you aren't that gullible and atleast look into the defense that Ron Paul had to offer. He certainly does not condone the racist material published in the newsletter 20 years ago.
“I think we can safely assume that 95% of the black males in that city [Washington, D.C.] are semi-criminal or entirely criminal.”
“Korean-Americans, hated by blacks, never riot, and in fact are some of the most productive people in America (the reason for black hatred).”
“Indeed, it is shocking to consider the uniformity of opinion among blacks in this country.”
“The cause of the riots is plain: barbarism. If the barbarians cannot loot sufficiently through legal channels (i.e., the riots being the welfare-state minus the middleman), they resort to illegal ones, to terrorism.”
In some excerpts, the reader may be led to believe the words are indeed from Paul, a resident of Lake Jackson, Texas. In the "Ron Paul Political Report" from October 1992, the writer describes carjacking as the "hip-hop thing to do among the urban youth who play unsuspecting whites like pianos."
The author then offers advice from others on how to avoid being carjacked, including "an ex-cop I know," and says, "I frankly don't know what to make of such advice, but even in my little town of Lake Jackson, Texas, I've urged everyone in my family to know how to use a gun in self defense. For the animals are coming."

Well, the "la la la, we can't hear you" approach from the Ron Paul supporters doesn't work anymore. In case any of you don't want to bother watching the videos, here's a short summary for you. It's a fine example of racism.
"Is Ron Paul really the hip candidate he appears to be?
James Kirchick has been trawling through years of back issues of the Ron Paul newsletter and thinks he knows the answer:
What they reveal are decades worth of obsession with conspiracies, sympathy for the right-wing militia movement, and deeply held bigotry against blacks, Jews, and gays".
