    Racism in the LDS church
    Statements about race in the Book of Mormon


    Even though the Book of Mormon teaches that African Americans are inferior and loathsome, -- uncouth, uncomely, disagreeable and low in their habits, wild, and seemingly deprived of nearly all the blessings of the intelligence that is generally bestowed upon mankind according to Mark E. Peterson -- it does state that they may eventually be saved. However, even in Heaven, LDS theology said that they will be servants to others.

    The racism don't end, even in heaven.

    Most holy books have prejudiced garbage in them. I think it's silly that people harp on about the racism in one religion or another.

    You do realize that the Book of Mormon doesnt mention african-Americans at all, right?

    I don't know about you, but I've met a lot of African Americans that were born in the United States.
