Blacks can only go to heaven as slaves to their white masters

Statements about race in the Book of Mormon:

the Book of Mormon teaches that African Americans are inferior and loathsome, -- 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 it does state that they may eventually be saved. However, even in Heaven, they will be servants to others


in 2 Nephi 30:6, the the Book of Mormon as originally translated by Joseph Smith said that if Lamanites accepted the true gospel,
3 Nephi 2:15 reads:
"And their curse was taken from them, and their skin became white like unto the Nephites
"...their scales of darkness shall begin to fall from their eyes; and many generations shall not pass away among them, save they shall be a white and a delightsome people."
Ham is described in Genesis 9 as a son of Noah who had seen his father naked. Ham himself was not punished. But Ham's son, Canaan, was cursed.


Genesis 9:25-27:
Cursed be Canaan! The lowest of slaves will he be to his brothers. He also said, 'Blessed be the Lord, the God of Shem! May Canaan be the slave of Shem. May God extend the territory of Japheth; may Japeth live in the tents of Shem and may Canaan be his slave'."
This became known as the Curse of Ham.
