Andrew Sullivan is accusing Romney of being racist because the Mormon Church had a policy 35 years ago of not ordaining Mormons of African ancestry to its priesthood. Again, that policy ENDED 35 years ago, before half the people in the US were born, and 3/4 of current Mormons were born or joined that church. Sullivan is not satisfied that 8 million of the 14 million Mormons live outside the US in 150 countries speaking 95 languages. He is not satisfied that Mormons include some 200,000 blacks in the US, and 400,000 in Nigeria, Uganda, and other African nations, and 100,000 people in Haiti and the Dominican Republic, and a million people in Brazil including many people whose ancestors are American Indians, Japanese, and Africans.
