I came upon this when looking through my friendsfriends.

The Constitution does not give the federal government the power to specify in detail how elections are conducted. As I understand it, this is the basis of Paul's opposition to legislation which does that.

I can't speak to those quotes without knowing their context. The statistical fact that black men have a higher crime rate is certainly relevant under some circumstances. Women are more likely to be nervous when they're out alone at night and see a strange man of any skin color than if they see a strange woman; is this sexist, or is it a rational response to the probabilities?

On the other hand, Paul's comments on immigrants are irrational and conflict with his libertarian philosophy, so I can't dismiss your concerns out of hand.
