The Blacks cannot take the curse off themselves until God takes it off. Make all men saints and they will treat each other well. So the Lamanites are cursed. But are there not blessings for them? Yes, the same as there are for the Saints, for Joseph, Brigham, and Jesus Christ, and all faithful men and women in their time and season. So be contented.
