“False ideas that were invented to rationalize our earlier racist practices are still with us…a majority of bright, well-educated Mormon students say they believe that blacks are descendants of Cain and Ham and thereby cursed and that skin color is an indication of righteousness in the premortal life. They tell me these ideas came from their parents or seminary and Sunday school teachers, and they have never questioned them.”

~Eugene England/BYU English professor emeritus, Sunstone – June 1998, 21:2, no. 110; see also Becoming a World Religion: Blacks, the Poor – All of Us, pages 49-60~
