An Official Declaration

Thanks to Candace Salima. I loved this video.

It needs to be shared.

One of the hardest things for me about moving to the South was experiencing prejudice for the first time in my life.

I am so happy to know that I have been a part of stomping out that prejudice.

I love God’s people, no matter what color.

And I especially love the members, like Phyllis, who give our church some soul.

P.S. If you are a Mormon who is keen on Mormon culture, and you would like something else from Candace, on the lighter side, click here. I laughed.



  1. This is a topic that my husband has struggled with… always knowing that ALL worthy members of the church should be able to partake in ALL of the blessings. I am glad that this declaration was made and for us it didn’t happen soon enough. I grew up with a Dad that was prejudice and I am so glad that I do not take after him in that respect. I love ALL of God’s children. ToOdLeS, ShEiLA

  2. I loved this video (I saw it a week or so ago). It is so well done. Thanks for sharing it.When I investigated the Church back in 73/74, this was my biggest struggle. I’m so grateful for the revelation.

  3. My husband’s uncle was the first African-American to receive the priesthood. He is such a wonderful man and has an amazing testimony and he is now a bishop in Utah.
