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.
Why do blacks and whites to often allow color to prevent unification on basic issues of freedom and liberty?
Who says Tea Party types can't unite with Ferguson Protesters?...can you imagine the 'bridge' of unity that would create?, the power that would send?
And who says black activist can't join with Tea Party on certain issues of basic rights and liberty?
And who benefits most from this divide in the populace?
Liberals are afraid of black conservatives. Black conservatives mean the end to their rhetoric and threaten to shatter the chains of dependency. Harriet Tubman said, “I freed a thousand slaves. I could have freed a thousand more; if only they knew they were slaves.” If only Frederick Douglass and Harriet Tubman were here now to stand with Allen West, Carson , Sowell , Mia Love, Brenda Jordan and many more...
In comparison, modern black “leaders” like Jesse Jackson Jr. and Al Sharpton are tiny and self-serving. They don’t serve black Americans or champion freedom and liberty for all. They champion liberal politics and ideology, and that’s odd; liberals want to see blacks tucked neatly into the roles of their design.
There has been much written about the racial rhetoric that has permeated political discourse since President Obama took office, and the media often highlights the racially inflammatory language used by some of his opponents. But racially charged language targeting black Republicans rarely receives much coverage, further fueling conservative suspicion of the mainstream media.
Yet, neither Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, nor the liberal elites who prop them up represent the true values of the black community. Most black folks oppose abortion, support traditional marriage and favor school choice. Black leaders ignore these facts and dance to the tune of their liberal benefactors. My convictions come from my proud black father who took me out of foster care, raised me as a single Dad and never took a dime of government assistance. They come from my church upbringing which taught me to trust God, not government. Black conservatives want to break the cycle of poverty in the black community, not use it to perpetuate the grievance industry. Who are the real sell-outs? Who are the real racists?"
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.
