They were the only group in concentration camps who could have walked out at any time by simply renouncing their belief. None did. But then death is irrelevant when you know what's next.

Puerto Rico has a large community of Jehovas Witness. There is also a not so large community of Mormons. I was studied the Mormon teachings, and allowed myself to be babtized by them. Of course, I did not last very long in the Church. I understood then, and I still understand now that they are somewhat racist. So I decided to stay away, and I have. I am brown skinned: I would be called a "mulato", a mixture of of races. The mixture began with my great-grandfather who married a white woman. We have continued that soft brown color in the the family. Mormons do not like the mixture of races; I did not like their attitude nor the story in the "Book of Mormon."

So, I am happy being a hybrid Universalist who enjoys Vedic metaphysics, Buddist style meditations, and a bit of Christianity something or the other.

Take it back far enough and everyone is of mixed race. When will the idiots wake up to the fact like much of nature the human race is diverse and always will be. I hate rascism.

I think specism may have existed before racism.
