Question #91419 posted on 07/11/2018 12:16 a.m.

Dear 100 Hour Board,

Dragon Lady's interesting response to Board Question #91343 came to mind when I read this article in LDS Living: http://www.ldsliving.com/How-We-Misinterpret-Black-and-Curse-in-the-Scriptures-Insights-from-a-Black-Convert/s/88562?page=1#story-content

I have conflicted thoughts about the article, but overall my impression was positive. Do you agree with his interpretation of the scriptures?

Dear raging,

I actually saw this article posted on Facebook. I don't know if I necessarily agree with his interpretation of the scriptures because I haven't done much study or prayed about it much either, but I do know that I appreciated his perspective. I enjoy hearing points of view from black people about racism in the Church. 

Overall though, I do believe what he is saying. I want to do a more in-depth study of this sometime. I hope members of the LDS church can remove racist beliefs. Wouldn't that be an awesome step in this world?
