Fighting Racism

“Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons: but in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him.” -Acts 10:34-35

“There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus; and if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.” -Galatians 3:28-29

The “skins” of the Lamanites refers to their clothing:

“Now the heads of the Lamanites were shorn; and they were naked, save it were skin, which was girded about their loins… and the skins of the Lamanites were dark, according to the mark which was set upon their fathers, which was a curse upon them because of their transgression and their rebellion against their brethren” -Alma 1:03-104 RAV, 35-6 OPV

“O my brethren, I fear that unless ye shall repent of your sins, that their skins will be whiter than yours when ye shall be brought with them before the throne of God; wherefore, a commandment I give unto you, which is the word of God, that ye revile no more against them because of the darkness of their skins.” -Jacob 5:59-60 RAV, 3:8-9a OPV
