160 years ago today - Dec 7, 1860

The President [Brigham Young] remarked that the whites by mingling their seed with the blacks entailed on their own posterity the curse that fell upon the blacks. He further remarked all the Sons of Adam will receive their priesthood before the blood of Cain and then the curse will be removed by their receiving it. -- Salt Lake City
