SORT BY Relevancy
There is always room to offend someone for one reason or another. African-Americans have plenty of reasons to take offense with many of the injustices occurring around the clock. But should we?
Are Blacks, as a whole, too sensitive? Join us on this episode of The Tatum Talks, as we discuss various headlines in pop culture and the news that have insulted a segment of the race. Do we all agree most of the time, or is it just a few that make a stink over nothing?
Join in and sound off!

They cause pain to church members of African descent, provide cover for repugnant views and make the church an easy target for criticism and satire. The church would benefit itself and its members — and one member in particular, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee — by formally repudiating the priesthood ban and the racist theories that accompanied it.
Mormonism wasn’t always troubled by anti-black racism. In a country deeply stained by slavery and anti-black racism, the church, founded by Joseph Smith in 1830, was noteworthy for its relative racial egalitarianism. Smith episodically opposed slavery and tolerated the priesthood ordination of black men, at least one of whom, Elijah Abel, occupied a position of minor authority.
Blacks can't be racist or can they?

Tune in as the Sistas chat with Russell Stevensen, author of For the Cause of Righteousness: A Global History of Black and Mormonism, 1830 - 2013. Russell's newest work seeks to explore the story of blacks and Mormonism through an intimate lens, focusing not only on the experiences of church leaders but also the ordinary Latter-day Saint: the day laborer nervous about his African ancestry, the West African woman establishing her own ‘Mormon’ congregation, the Pat Boone-loving Mormon missionary in Africa and the Black Panther musing on the Mormons’ wasted potential. Robert Orsi has argued that religion ‘comes into being in an ongoing, dynamic relationship with realities of everyday life.’ Race was both a spoken and lived experience. The Mormon people witnessed it, felt it, and absorbed it. But for the Mormon people, racism was also a conscious decision—and one that exacted a heavy toll during their epoch in the wilderness.
36 years ago today on June 8, 1978, The Chruch of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints restored the Priesthood to Black Latter-day Saints. At the beginning of LDS Chruch history Elijah Abel and other black Mormons held the LDS priesthood. After Joseph Smith died a policy was instuted restricting anyone of African decent from using the priesthood if they had already been ordained or being ordained if they had not. In 1978 then President of the LDS Church, Spencer W. Kimball announced that all worthy men would hold the priesthood. In December 2013 the LDS Church further dispelled common myths and rationalizations for the policy against blacks in the Chruch. Tune in as the Sistas commemorate this long awaited day with a special focus on the impact the priesthood ban had on Black Mormon women.
Since blacks has helped to shape what this country is today do they not with clear conscience have every right and privilege to celebrate in its birth and independence irrespective the racial challenges they had to endure?
Is it a contradiction for blacks to celebrate July 4th 1776 given the signing of the emancipation proclamation did not occur until 1865?
