Black Mormon woman married to a white man.
Brigham Young would have had her and her husband killed. Journal of Discourses vol. 10, page 110.
In June of 1978, after spending much time in prayer, President Spencer W. Kimball received a revelation from the Lord which announced that all worthy male members of the Church could receive the Priesthood. The Lord revealed to President Spencer W. Kimball that the time had come, in His eternal providences, to offer the fullness of the gospel and the blessings of the holy priesthood to all men.
Since that time, the rise of Black Africans joining the Church has increased tremendously. Evidence of this was displayed in 1998 when Gordon B. Hinckley traveled to five different African countries and announced a temple to be built in Ghana. There he was welcomed by thousands of members who not only held the Priesthood but rejoiced at the news of having their own temple. President Hinckley was also the keynote speaker for the 1998 National Association for the Advancement of Colored People conference.
Check you history dude, you sound like a knuckle-dragger!
You might want to come in to the 21st century.

You’re absolutely right.
I’m a ex-mormon, and I find it bizarre that any black person could join a religion that has stated she is (their words) dark and loathesome, destined to be a servant to white mormons in the afterlife and denied the celestial kingdom solely because of her race, according to the mormon prophets, including Joseph Smith.
That said, if her bona fides are truly conservative, I would vote for her in a heartbeat. The only pause her religion gives me is how the mind works that accepts a faith that has been demeaning, beyond the pale, to her race.
If she’s conservative, she gets the job.
Relating to Romney, I’m not happy with any mormon being the leader of our country, but if he were a true conservative, I could shelve my grievance. But he’s not, and I won’t.
Anti-mormon, you could say. Anti-liberal, definitely. When I vote I figure I’m hiring for a company, and being conservative is the job requirement, no exceptions...and we can argue about God at the end of the day.
