Blacks have always been allowed to members of the Mormon religion. However, there was something thing where they weren't allowed to have the priesthood. This is dispusted, however, and some claim that Joseph Smith had a black follower that he made gave the priesthood status to. I forget the guy's name.
At any rate, this happens in every single audience in the world. So, it's because their Mormon, huh? Is that why racial slurs are such a problem in soccer games in Europe? All those Mormons, huh?
Hey guys, remember when Mormons owned all those slaves? Or when they lynched all those black people in South? DAMN MORMONS!
look at New Jazzy Net's avatar
the darkest skin guy there is boozer and he aint even black like the guy up there
deron, boozer, fisher are all black but their skin aren't those true black.
for example of true black, look at recent pics of jordan.
True black, huh?
What's wrong with the world?! There was a thread like this a few months ago about how the jazz supposedly "go after white players to appeal to their white fans." Don't feel like explaining that again. You should search for it, it was a pretty good thread...
First of all, the people that say Utah is like 95 percent white are just stupid. I live here in Utah, i am part black. Not "true black," whatever the hell that means. There are plenty of blacks, mexicans, tongans, somoans... I know that there are white people as the majority, but it's not NEARLY as bad as some of you guys are saying. I bet most of you have never even been to Utah... You should listen to the guy that lives in the state and know that there are many different races that are living here.
And all teams have a few stupid fans. Whether jackson got called that or not, it's just something he has to deal with. And it's not like the whole Jazz crowd started a chant calling him a Ni****. It was just one fan, assuming that the story is even true. I'm sure it's not the first time a fan talked about him. He needs to just ignore it.
"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.
The first man that committed the odious crime of killing one of his brethren will be cursed the longest of any one of the children of Adam. Cain slew his brother. Cain might have been killed, and that would have put a termination to that line of human beings.
This was not to be, and the Lord put a mark upon him, which is the flat nose and black skin. Trace mankind down to after the flood, and then another curse is pronounced upon the same race--that they should be the "servant of servants;" and they will be, until that curse is removed."

Ever wonder why the Jazz are the only team where the Majority of their best players are White.
No Black Man wants to live in Utah. Their fans wouldn't support an all Black Team. Ownership knows it.
No doubt it happened. But it only takes a few fans anywhere to set it off.
Eh Mehmet Okur is Turkish, and I think most Americans would consider their local Turkish Gas owner an Arab rather then a white man. Even my dad who comes from Europe has been mistaken for an Arab because his name is Muhamet.
Second off, where the **** did you get 60% from? Was one of his parents 90% white and the other one 30% and you divided them up and got 60? Or were you just trying to post some rhetorical bullshyt that's been done hundreds of times, but yet fails to make sense because the majority of Utah's team are still considered Minorities..
Now say if Utah had a bunch of white american mormons on the team, then maybe you could make a case, but until then, shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.
"The Blacks are denied the Priesthood; under no circumstances can they hold this delegation of authority from the Almighty.
The Negroes are not equal with other races where the receipt of certain blessings are concerned, particularly the priesthood and the temple blessings that flow there from, but this inequality is not of man's origin, it is the Lord's doings." (Mormon Doctrine, pp. 526-527).
