The Curse of the

     " I would be willing to let every Negro drive a Cadillac if they could afford it."
  We know the Book of Mormon is TRUE
US  SO! Q.E.D.

(1831 - 1844)   JOSEPH SMITH  Discoverer of the Golden plates  
First Prophet and President and Founder of the Mormon Church:

"Had I anything to do with the negro , I would confine them by strict law to their own species and put them on a national equalization.''
(1848 - 1877)   BRIGHAM YOUNG 2nd Prophet and President
 "You see some classes of the human family that are black, uncouth, uncomely, disagreeable, sad, low in their habits, wild, and seemingly without the blessings of the intelligence that is generally bestowed upon mankind.
"Shall I tell you the law of God in regard to the African race? If the white man who belongs to the chosen seed mixes his blood with the seed of Cain, the penalty, under the law of God, is death on the spot. This will always be so."

(1877 - 1887)  JOHN TAYLOR 3rd Prophet and President
"...after the flood we are told that the curse that had been pronounced upon Cain was continued through Ham's wife, as he had married a wife of that seed. And why did it pass through the flood? Because it was necessary that the devil should have a representation a upon a the earth as well as God;.. "

(1901 - 1918)  JOSEPH FIELDING SMITH 10th Prophet and President
"I would not want you to believe that we bear any animosity toward the Negro. "Darkies" are wonderful people, and they have their place in our church."
"Not only was Cain called upon to suffer, but because of his wickedness he became the father of an inferior race.
"... and they have been 'despised among all people.' This doctrine did not originate with President Brigham Young but was taught by the Prophet Joseph Smith ..."

Disclaimer /
      The Book of Mormon (BOM) was not TRANSLATED CORRECTLY at first.  Thousands of corrections were substituted and added later, inspired by revelation.  For example, initially the BOM's "... a white and delightsome [race of people]" had been translated incorrectly by the prophet Joseph Smith; it should have read "... light and delightsome".  Such replacements are always made without calling attention to the changes.  An rare exception was, when in 1976, the LDS prophet widely publicized that it's now OK to be a descendent of the Biblical Cain -- the Black race.

  Tarring and feathering of Joseph Smith  

BRUCE R. McCONKIE of the Quorum of the 12 Apostles

The negroes are not equal with other races when the receipt of certain spiritual blessings are concerned..."
...As a result of his rebellion, Cain was cursed with a dark skin; he became the father of the negroes"

"Cain Ham, and the whole negro race have _ cursed with a black skin, the mark of Cain, so they can be identified as a caste apart, a people with whom the other descendants of Adam should not intermarry."

MARK E. PETERSON of the Quorum of the 12 Apostles
"At least in the cases of the Lamanites and the negroes we have the definite word of the Lord Himself that He placed a dark skin upon them as a curse - as a punishment and as a sign to all others.
" If there is one drop of negro blood in my children, as I have read to you, they receive the curse, There isn't any argument, therefore, as to intermarriage with the Negro, is there? "Now we are generous with the Negro. We are willing that the Negro have the highest kind of education. I would be willing to let every Negro drive a Cadillac if they could afford it.
ORSON PRATT of the Quorum of the 12 Apostles
"The Lord has not kept them in store for five or six thousand years past, and kept them waiting for their bodies all this time to send them among the Hottentots, the African Negroes, the idolatrous Hindoos, or any other of the fallen nations of the earth
"Lamanites" is the Book of Mormon term for Native Americans. The quote below is from a Mormon General Conference talk given by Spencer W. Kimball in 1960. Spencer W. Kimball became the president of the Mormon Church in 1975.

"The day of the Lamanites in nigh. For years they have been growing delightsome, and they are now becoming white and delightsome, as they were promised. [...] The children in the home placement program in Utah are often lighter than their brothers and sisters in the hogans on the reservation.

At one meeting a father and mother and their sixteen-year-old daughter were present, the little member girl- sixteen- sitting between the darker father and mother, and it was evident she was several shades lighter than her parents- on the same reservation, in the same hogan, subject to the same sun and wind and weather. There was the doctor in a Utah city who for two years had had an Indian boy in his home who  stated that he was some shades lighter than the younger brother just coming into the program from the reservation. These young members of the Church are changing to whiteness and to delightsomeness. One white elder jokingly said that he and his companion were donating blood regularly  to the hospital in the hope that the process might be accelerated."
These Seers and Revelators silently acquiesced in in the Mormon condemnation of black and Indian people.

It is noteworthy than none disagreed.
In all fairness --
In June in 1978, President Spencer W. Kimball spoke with The Heavenly Father, who lives on the planet Kolob.  Afterwards, an announcement was made -- without any doctrinal statement -- which only said the Lord had indicated that the time for change had come.  Blacks could now become full participants in the church, if they are worthy."
But No doctrinal statement was given.
Mormonism can never correct its denigrating view of Blacks and Indians.  To do so would mean that the scriptures aren't true.  It would mean that the war in the 'pre-existence', on Kolob might, after all,  not have caused the devil to mix his blood with that of Cain.  Then, Cain could not have fathered all black skinned children...
A doctrinal statement to gloss over this racist Mormon business is therefore not possible.  Mormonism could not survive it.
To correct the bigotry now would mean that Joseph Smith could not have translated the golden plates.   Perhaps Smith could not even translate anything at all!   Perhaps he couldn't read Egyptian, to boot.  Could it be that Smith was a fraud and  Mormonism is his colossal hoax?   If so it would mean an unthinkable loss of tithing revenue for church coffers.
A Mormon recantation of its racist foundation cannot happen because racism is directly hard-wired into the source code of the entire program.
However, with the change of the Negroes receiving the Priesthood in 1978, Mormon leaders are attempting to cover up this embarrassing teaching concerning skin color.
"... many generations shall not pass away among them, save they shall be a WHITE and a delightsome people." (1830 Edition, p. 117)
"... PURE and delightsome people." (1840 edition)
"...WHITE and delightsome people." (All later translations until 1981)
"... PURE and delightsome people." (1981 translations , II Nephi 30:6)
Although the Mormon Church will not make available the handwritten manuscript of the Book of Mormon, the R.L.D.S. Church has the handwritten printers copy, which was given to the printer to set the type for the first printing. It too, agrees with the 1830Edition.  It reads "white".  (off-site link)


Beat down,
Put down,
Held down,
Sill we rise,
Like the one crucified.
As you wonders why,
We’re the chosen one,
Look at the evil you done,
Starting with the death of his son.
