In the upcoming presidential election between a black candidate (President Barack Obama) and a Mormon candidate (Mitt Romney), perhaps the most interesting niche group of voters is black Mormons.
In a story in Tuesday's New York Times, reporter Susan Saulny speaks to a number of black members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to see how they are approaching an election that, according to Sualny, is a "watershed moment symbolizing the hard-won acceptance of racial and religious minorities."
"I feel a definite sense of pride in the U.S.A. that we have a Mormon candidate and (a) black candidate," says Catherine Spruill, who Saulny says is "mixed race like Mr. Obama and Mormon like Mr. Romney."
"I feel pride for my people, because America picked that."
