This will put a smile on your face. 2 Mormon teens ride their bikes into an all black neighborhood and decide to play a little basketball....wait for it....it gets really good.
Something that brings a little hope and sunshine in the midst of President Racist and his minions on MSNBC.
BY THE POWER OF JOSEPH SMITH!!!
Better hide the whole “you’re black because you were disobedient in the pre-existence and were cursed to be dark, so that good white Mormons wouldn’t intermarry with you” doctrine.
I seen many a brother act that way playing football with my son— the kid is fast as lightening and got amazing ups! Have to admit, I have never seen him play wearing a tie though! ;-)
The Mormon boys kept it classy the entire time...ties and all ;)
This made me feel good. They all got along.
that used to be the NORM.. so while I found the video entertaining and somewhat inspiring it also broke my heart comparing todays norm with that of yesteryear.
A little bit of game can transcend differences of culture. Once, music was that way.
And to think...for the first 130-something years of Mormon templehood (early 1840s into the first half of 1978), blacks SPECIFICALLY couldn’t walk into a Mormon temple...or get married in a Mormon temple...all because the Mormon god officially objected to their skin color.
God bless ‘em...all of them. And despite what I am sure will be many Mormon detractors, God bless you for posting it. Your message is clear. when people treat one another with the love of Christ, good things can happen.
How low is that dang hoop? LOL
You must have been a Mormon.
I’m not an expert on the religion by any means. But I thought Joseph Smith was an abolitionist who not only allowed blacks into the church but permitted black men to be ordained as priests and that the anti-black policies only began under Brigham Young.
Thanks for posting.
All the missed shots at the beginning were most likely done on purpose and then finally came the slam-dunk for effect.
Or scam... We're just some Mormon missionaries in our white shirts and ties, can we play with your round ball?
They miss a few shots... And then BAM! Takin’ it to the house... How much did they take them for?
Gotta be the magic underwear.
