Nor can he consider himself to be in harmony with the teachings of the Church." Concerning Church history, an official LDS statement explains that reasons for the Church's previous position denying black men the priesthood remain unclear: "It is not known precisely why, how, or when this restriction began in the Church but what is clear is that it ended decades ago." Critics maintain that today's church leaders hedge and equivocate on the issue, at times making contradictory and misleading statements that belie Church history.For example, historians have identified hundreds of blatantly racist statements made by past Church prophets and leaders, including Joseph Smith, Brigham Young, Wilford Woodruff, and John Taylor.

In that year, a revelation received by the Prophet Spencer W. Today, Church leaders rely on scriptural authority to proclaim that all humans, regardless of race or sex, are equal in the eyes of God: The gospel of Jesus Christ is for everyone. The Church has issued several statements solidifying its stance on racial equality: "The Church's position is clear—we believe all people are God's children and are equal in His eyes and in the Church.And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s offspring, heirs according to promise” (Gal -29).There is little doubt that since Jesus was born a Jew He had to have the attributes of other Jews and there is no recorded historical accounts of black Jews in His time, however there were black Jews who had converted to Judaism but that is no reason to believe that Jesus was black.But a Jew is one inwardly, and circumcision is a matter of the heart, by the Spirit, not by the letter” (Rom -29)“There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus” so the fact is that “if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s offspring, heirs according to promise” (Gal -29).

Micah 5:2 states where He was to be born, writing “But you, O Bethlehem Ephrathah, who are too little to be among the clans of Judah, from you shall come forth for me one who is to be ruler in Israel, whose coming forth is from of old, from ancient days.” Does it really matter whether Jesus was black or not?
