Taken From Bayou to Utah, Katrina Evacuees Try to Adapt
Culture-Shocked Hurricane Victim Says He Feels Like a 'Fly in a Bowl of Milk
More than 600 displaced Katrina victims were flown to Utah -- a state very different from Louisiana and one in which few evacuees had ever dreamed of living.
"I asked the stewardess, I said, 'Ma'am, where are we going?' and she said, 'Salt Lake City.' And everybody was like, 'Uh, Utah? What's in Utah?' "
But the biggest shock, Andrews said, was the people. One evacuee called his experience in Salt Lake City like being a fly in a bowl of milk.
New Orleans is 67 percent black, but blacks make up less than 2 percent of Utah's population.
The unemployment rate for black people in New Orleans is twice as high as the overall rate in Salt Lake City.

Yes, many of them are nice people. I have had Mormon friends and even attended an ice cream social. I was impressed with the focus on family as well. But, just like with the Masons, the lower ranks never see what is really taking place in the big picture.

I lived in Salt Lake City for some time and did notice that a lot of inbreeding occurs amongst the greater Mormon population. They even passed a law to reduce taxes on new settlers to the state so that they could bring "fresh blood" to mix in with the general population. The inbreeding is evident when you look at the faces of the youth and see they have droopy eyes and other tell tale signs of inbreeding. Maybe they are amassing the database to prevent inbreeding amongst the populace by informing them that who they are about to marry is closely related.

What I mean is they do not take part in wars.
They are American and they do not fight. They are peaceful.

ROFLMAO! That has to be the most absurd thing I have ever heard about the Mormons and I thought I had heard it all... Realy so observed inbreeding among the greater Mormon Population.
The ‘hierarchy children’ are from the ‘elite’ first families of Mormonism and these families started polygamy in America. Nearly all the Mormon founding families were relatives, so the first polygamists enjoyed relations to different degrees when the divine experiment began. The Twelve Apostles of Mormonism then acted to increase this familial relationship by marrying other relatives until in 1877, at the end of Brigham Young’s reign as Mormon Prophet and King, the polygamous hierarchy became l00% interrelated. D. Michael Quinn, former Brigham Young University Professor, states “The Mormon practice of polygamy enabled men to marry daughters, nieces, cousins, granddaughters and former wives of other General Authorities”. 
Since polygamy remained a hidden and illegal practice, disguised family records occurred. The records of the marriages sealed at the Nauvoo Temple before the general exodus to Utah in the 1840’s, may be the most important ones of all; yet, these are stored in a vault, unavailable to researchers. During this early period, polygamy was practiced secretly by the Mormon leadership, men who covertly preached and expanded polygamy while publicly deceiving the general Mormon population about the practice. These wives sometimes became known, sometimes not. For instance, Quinn writes, “over twenty General Authorities were married to such lesser known wives” . ‘Lesser known children’ hidden in families sympathetic to polygamists might remain ignorant of their genetic kinship. And the Genealogy Department advises genealogists to follow only their direct line; in this instance meaning only the wife who is their mother, not other wives of their father. This is inadequate information for purposes of establishing the true incidence of consanguinity within a family or community.
This gene cluster effect happens when people with common ancestors marry and bear children. Polygamy today is comprised of early Mormon polygamy descendants and these families are now interrelated by a factor impossible in monogamy. Evidence exists that this gene pool foments a genetic and human catastrophe.
