I joined the Army on the buddy program with my best friend who is Black. I am not Joseph Fielding Smith who referred to them as "darkies" and "coloreds".
The history of LDS inc is a sad one when it comes to minorities(US Term here) and, like it or not, Cael and family are Mormon. A long history of racism is difficult to overcome and being raised in a place like Heber City, Utah with its attitudes towards "Lamanites" (Indians for those not familiar with mormon terminology) and Blacks is difficult to overcome completely.
Utah is an unfriendly place to minorities. Growing up there one assimilates the dominant culture as daily life is loaded with Mormons, from school to the stores and neighborhoods and family members. Few blacks live or have lived in Heber City and not many in the State overall.
Maybe he and his fellow coaches are past it but from his dealings with Bobby and some others it doesn't appear so.
Showing the history of racism by quoting those who lead the Religion is a heads up for those who are not familiar with the teachings of the Church Cael is a member of. Our current President Obama was taken to task for his membership in a congretation that was shown to be very prejudiced against Caucasion people. Doesnt' make him that way but if he had not stopped going there it certainly would have called his judgment and beliefs in question.
With LDS, you believe what The Prophet says or you are on your way out the door. "When the Prophet speaks, the thinking is done" is a nice saying many in LDS wards and stakes use to try and get people in line rather than thinking for themselves. Nothing anyone does now changes more than a century of racist garbage. The Leaders preached what they said was The Word of God. Racist CRAP. One good reason I would never let my kids compete for a mormon coach or attend a place like BYU.
