Mormon Racism...
then and now

This brochure takes a very brief look at Mormonism’s racist teachings (i.e., black or dark skin being a sign of unrighteousness and a curse from God).  Despite the 1978 lifting of the ban on blacks holding the Mormon priesthood and the ongoing evolution of the text of Mormon “scriptures,” most of the original racist passages are still found in the Book of Mormon and racist statements abound from past Mormon “prophets,” which have never been recanted.
