Wilford Woodruff, His Life and Labors, p 587; “There is one peculiar characteristic noticeable in the journal of Wilford Woodruff, it is that hopeful, joyful spirit that dwells with ever increasing satisfaction upon the things that are good and uplifting…He said in his journal of October, that year, that “Aunt Jane,” the colored sister, had been to see him. She was anxious to go through the Temple and receive the higher ordinances of the gospel.

President Woodruff blessed her for her constant, never changing devotion to the gospel, but explained to her her disadvantages as one of the descendants of Cain. In after years when President Joseph F. Smith preached the funeral sermon of this same faithful woman he declared that she would in the resurrection attain the longings of her soul and become a white and beautiful person.” – 1909

Mormon Decisions 10History of the Church 2:436-438; “…the first mention we have of slavery is found in the Holy Bible … And so far from that prediction being averse to the mind of God, it remains as a lasting monument of the decree of Jehovah, to the shame and confusion of all who have cried out against the South, in consequence of their holding the sons of Ham in servitude.” – Joseph Smith

Martin Luther King jrAugust 28, 2013

When Martin Luther King’s speech took place fifty years ago today, I was four months shy of being born.  That doesn’t mean his words don’t carry as much weight for me or others not born in that era because they do! Reverend King’s speech has stood as a hallmark of all speeches – ever.

Mark of Cain is a Black Skin, Blacks weren’t Valiant in Pre-existence

The Church and the Negro, John Lund,

pg 13; “On the subject of the mark of Cain our prophets have given all the important information that is necessary to our salvation. Frankly, sincerely, and somewhat abruptly, President Brigham Young has told us that the mark of Cain was a “black skin.” For the Latter-day Saint no further explanation is required. However, it is not necessary to rely on this single statement to arrive at the same conclusion. There are numerous references made by both ancient and modern prophets that point to the fact that Cain was the father of the race that became known as the Negroid…”

Other Reasons Why Negro Cannot Hold Priesthood 

Answers to Gospel Questions 2:188; “Kindly see chapters 15 and 16, in The Way to Perfection, for further light in relation to the reason why the Negro cannot receive the priesthood. In brief, it is as follows: Because of transgression in the first estate which deprives him in this second estate. Since Cain slew his brother Abel in order to obtain all the rights of priesthood to descend through his lineage, the Lord decreed that the children of Cain should not have the privilege of bearing the priesthood until Abel had posterity who could have the priesthood and that will have to be in the far distant future. When this is accomplished on some other world, then the restrictions will be removed from the children of Cain who have been true in this “second” estate”.

Blacks are Cursed & Shouldn’t Intermarry

Mormon Doctrine, pg. 114; “… in a broad general sense, caste systems have their root and origin in the gospel itself, and when they operate according to the divine decree, the resultant restrictions and segregation are right and proper and have the approval of the Lord. To illustrate: Cain, Ham, and the whole negro race have been 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. (Gen. 4; Moses 5.)” – Apostle Bruce R. McConkie
