https://universe.byu.edu/2023/03/15/president-nelson-named-the-inaugural-recipient-of-the-gandhi-king-mandela-peace-prize/

Daily Universe reports on the inaugural peace prize going to the CULT Leader,”The statement cites President Nelson’s 2020 social media post as a contributor to his receiving the award. The Facebook post, shared shortly after the death of George Floyd, called upon all people to “abandon attitudes of prejudice against any group of God’s children” and asked those who have prejudice toward another race to repent.

“We need to foster a fundamental respect for the human dignity of every human soul, regardless of their color, creed, or cause. And we need to work tirelessly to build bridges of understanding rather than creating walls of segregation,” President Nelson wrote. “I plead with us to work together for peace, for mutual respect, and for an outpouring of love for all of God’s children.”

So Moorehouse U gave this prize based upon a gaslighting FB post?
Where he ‘asked those who have prejudice toward another race to repent.’

Mormons read racist, white supremacist scriptures every day and sing the praises of the racist who elevated common 19th C racist myths to ‘revelation from God’ where they remain.
This ‘Peace Prize Recipient’ is the one man on Earth who has the power and authority to debunk these clearly racist 19th C myths by editing out the following verses in what Mormons consider to be ‘Revelation from God’ and the most perfect book on planet Earth, and he continues to refuse to do so.

BOOK of MORMON

1 Nephi 11:13 (Mary): “She was exceedingly fair and white.”

1 Nephi 12:23 (prophecy of the Lamanites): “Became a dark, and loathsome, and a filthy people, full of idleness and all manner of abominations.”

1 Nephi 13:15 (Gentiles): “They were white, and exceedingly fair and beautiful, like unto my people [Nephites] before they were slain.”

2 Nephi 5:21: “A sore cursing … as they were white, and exceedingly fair and delightsome, that they might not be enticing unto my people the Lord God did cause a skin of blackness to come upon them.”

2 Nephi 30:6 (prophecy to the Lamanites if they repented): “Scales of darkness shall begin to fall … they shall be a white and delightsome people” (“white and delightsome” was changed to “pure and delightsome” in 1981).

Jacob 3:5 (Lamanites cursed): “Whom ye hate because of their filthiness and the cursing which hath come upon their skins.”

Jacob 3:8-9: “Their skins will be whiter than yours … revile no more against them because of the darkness of their skins.”

Alma 3:6: “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.”

Alma 3:9: “Whosoever did mingle his seed with that of the Lamanites did bring the same curse upon his seed.”

Alma 3:14 (Lamanites cursed): “Set a mark on them that they and their seed may be separated from thee and thy seed.”

Alma 23:18: “[Lamanites] did open a correspondence with them [Nephites] and the curse of God did no more follow them.”

3 Nephi 2:14-16: “Lamanites who had united with the Nephites were numbered among the Nephites; And their curse was taken from them, and their skin became white like unto the Nephites and … became exceedingly fair.”

3 Nephi 19:25, 30 (Disciples): “They were as white as the countenance and also the garments of Jesus; and behold the whiteness thereof did exceed all the whiteness … nothing upon earth so white as the whiteness thereof … and behold they were white, even as Jesus.”

Mormon 5:15 (prophecy about the Lamanites): “For this people shall be scattered, and shall become a dark, a filthy, and a loathsome people, beyond the description of that which ever hath been amongst us.”

Pearl of Great Price

Moses 7:8: “A blackness came upon all the children of Canaan.”

Moses 7:12: “Enoch continued to call upon all the people, save it were [i.e., except] the people of Canaan, to repent.”

Moses 7:22: “For the seed of Cain were black and had not place among them.”

Abraham 1:21: “King of Egypt [Pharaoh] was a descendant from the loins of Ham, and was a partaker of the blood of the Canaanites by birth.”

Abraham 1:27: “Pharaoh being of that lineage by which he could not have the right of Priesthood.” (emphasis added to above citations).

Forward this to the college. Send it to the humanities group, not the president.

Good call.
Or maybe a letter to their school newspaper.
Maybe read off those racist BOM verses as RMN accepts his award.
