Yesterday, on May 17 2018, Jonathan Streeter leveraged news of a real meeting between leaders of the Mormon church and  the NAACP to create a fake apology from the Mormon Church regarding its history of institutional racism.  Zandra Vranes, from Sistas in Zion, responded to this hoax on a live stream FB video that was one of the most amazing things I have ever heard and seen.  It’s all very complicated.  Today, Glenn shares his reaction to both Jonathan’s Hoax and Zandra’s response.

Zandra’s video response:

LDS Apology for Racism is Fake
To the people who just retraumatized Black people in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. May God have mercy on your souls…
