I'm trying to think of the last time I heard of three Mormon thugs beating and stomping the head of a defenseless black kid while he awaited an elevator. Such a beating took place this week, only the victim was a 14-year-old white kid and the three bullies were black.

Apparently Chris Rock is aware of many such incidents involving Mormons. The race-obsessed comic who has made millions by entertaining mostly white crowds has nasty words for Mormons: They are racists.
Some are pleased that -- finally -- a black dude is revealing the horrid past of those god-awful Mormons. Others wonder why Rock never noticed racism among the Mormons until one of them ran for president as a Republican.
Rock vented his hate for Mormons on Jimmy Fallon's show earlier this week. (Yes, that's the same Jimmy Fallon who band played Lyin' A-- B---- when Michelle Bachmann walked on his show. That, of course, was before the Democrats noticed there was a War on Women.)
So what have Mormons done that has so enraged Chris Rock?
• Was it the Mormon thug who beat a black WWII veteran?
Nope. That was a black guy named Curt Hill. The 81-year-old white victim died after suffering from his wounds for three years. Chris Rock must have missed that one.
• Maybe it was Mormon woman named Letisha who killed her new black neighbor.
Nope. That was a black woman who stabbed 52-year-old Howard Allen 37 times. Allen, a white man, moved into his home about a month before Letisha's welcome wagon came calling.
• Could it be the black Marine who was murdered by white-shirted thugs on bikes?
Wrong again. 23-year-old Marine Corps sergeant Ryan Lekosky was white. Two black folks, Melvin and Heliana, were arrested after the white Marine was stabbed to death after Melvin and Heliana allegedly trashed talked Lekosky's new wife. The Marine and his bride had just left a Marine's Ball in New Orleans.
• Is Chris bent out of shape over two Mormons who gunned down a black shop employee?
Missed again. Cedric and Alex are black and, far as we know, were never Mormons. They were charged will killing a white worker at a Fayetteville pawn shop. The murdered white man was 19-year-old Kyle Harris.
So, I'm at a loss.
I can't recall what hate crimes Mormons have committed against blacks to prompt the hateful diatribe from Chris Rock. Surely those crimes must have been worse than any black-on-white violence.
• Mormon history
Everyone "knows" those tidbits about Mormon history:
They couldn't do math when it came to matrimony.
Indians descended from Abraham.
Negros were non-human. (See below.)
The point is: Chris Rock is reaching far into the PAST to make a case against Romney while ignoring the CURRENT black-on-white violence that is infinitely more 'racist' than PAST Mormon doctrine.
• Black complicity and Rock ignorance
While he reaches far into the past to make a case against Mormons, he misses black history that is far more complicit in racism that 'misguided' Mormon attitudes. He also misses Mormon history.
