I was excommunicated in 1978. It was a painful and interesting time in my life. The ERA and Black PH ban were both hot buttons for Mormonism. I found myself an apostate for my views and activism on both issues. I was an active Mormon, late 20's, temple married and living in Utah when the issues came to a full boil.
I hope the link can give you a peek into the issues of racism in Mormonism that year. You can find a lot of information out there....but as for the specific issue? I am not sure in reality this was more than a discussion.....or perhaps, a fear.
