Romney doesn't hate blacks.
I would not want you to believe that we bear any animosity toward the Negro. 'Darkies' are wonderful people ~ Joseph Fielding Smith (10th Mormon President and Prophet)Romney does believe they are cursed by God.
Cain, Ham, and the whole negro race have been cursed with a black skin, the mark of Cain, so they can be identified as a caste apart ~ Mormon Apostle Bruce McConkieRomney believe they are an inferior and unworthy race.
You see some classes of the human family that are black, uncouth, uncomely, disagreeable and low in their habits, wild and seemingly deprived of nearly all the blessings of the intelligence that is generally bestowed upon mankind ~ Brigham Young, Second President and ProphetRomney believes in strict segregation.
Had I anything to do with the negro, I would confine them by strict law to their own species ~ Joseph Smith, Mormon Church founderMitt Romney is not just a Mormon, he is a high ranked bishop with his church. He could not have achieved that level within the Mormon church without subscribing faithfully to the teachings of his religions Prophets.
