The recent protests, riots, and looting, has caused President Russel M. Nelson to post on social media his thoughts about these current events which he calls "saddening." President Nelson has been a big proponent in bringing racial issues forward and working with many different groups, including the NAACP, in fixing the issues that we have as a culture and society.
On June 1st, President Nelson wrote:
We join with many throughout this nation and around the world who are deeply saddened at recent evidences of racism and a blatant disregard for human life. We abhor the reality that some would deny others respect and the most basic of freedoms because of the color of his or her skin.
We are also saddened when these assaults on human dignity lead to escalating violence and unrest.
The Creator of us all calls on each of us to abandon attitudes of prejudice against any group of God’s children. Any of us who has prejudice toward another race needs to repent!
During the Savior’s earthly mission, He constantly ministered to those who were excluded, marginalized, judged, overlooked, abused, and discounted. As His followers, can we do anything less? The answer is no! We believe in freedom, kindness, and fairness for all of God’s children!
Let us be clear. We are brothers and sisters, each of us the child of a loving Father in Heaven. His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, invites all to come unto Him—“black and white, bond and free, male and female,” (2 Nephi 26:33). It behooves each of us to do whatever we can in our spheres of influence to preserve the dignity and respect every son and daughter of God deserves.
Any nation can only be as great as its people. That requires citizens to cultivate a moral compass that helps them distinguish between right and wrong.
Illegal acts such as looting, defacing, or destroying public or private property cannot be tolerated. Never has one wrong been corrected by a second wrong. Evil has never been resolved by more evil.
We need to foster our faith in the Fatherhood of God and the brotherhood of man.
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.
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 much of what’s happening right now is a war against the good and just…verses the evil and corrupt! We, as christians, stand by abhorred and completely saddened! Our Lord and savior is at the realm and HE WILL see us through this! We must continually pray and do what we can to support those who will lead us justly…out of this!!!

We need to abandon cultural stereotypes and give birth to a new paradigm of acceptance and integration based on mutual cooperation.

The Book of Mormon truly is for our time. Like Laman and Lemuel some in our society have taught their children to hate because of the things they feel we’re wronged them by past generations. They feel they are truly the ones that should be leading our nation and regardless of what we do they will never stop hating. Pray to have the power of discernment that ye may see truth and error and do the work to always have the spirit to guide you.
