So the Mormon scholars have shown that history conclusively demonstrates that Joseph Smith's Civil War Prophecy was fulfilled in each and every way, and is, in fact, still in the process of unfolding. -Kerry Shirts, "A War Against the Critics of Joseph Smith's Civil War Prophecy"
Why are so many of the inhabitants of the earth cursed with a sin of blackness? It comes in consequence of their fathers rejecting the power of the Holy Priesthood, and the law of God. They will go down to death. And when all the rest of the children have received their blessings in the Holy Priesthood, then that curse will be removed from the seed of Cain, and they will then come up and possess the priesthood, and receive all the blessings which we now are entitled to.

W[e] get our truth and our light line upon line and precept upon precept. We have now had added a new flood of intelligence and light on this particular subject, and it erases all the darkness and all the views and all the thoughts of the past. They don't matter any more.
It doesn't make a particle of difference what anybody ever said about the Negro matter before the first day of June of this year (1978). It is a new day and a new arrangement, and the Lord has now given the revelation that sheds light out into the world on this subject. As to any slivers of light or any particles of darkness of the past, we forget about them. "All Are Alike Unto God," speech by Elder Bruce R. McConkie
