The Book of Mormon uses the term Lamanite and Nephites very broadly ...but the terms are misinterpreted because of early misconceptions of early church leaders and members that the book was a history of the ancient inhabitants of the American continent. In addition the text of the BOM has been discovered by Royal Skousen to be Early Modern English from the 1500’s...and so Black and White abd fair and skin and skins have a different meaning than we suppose.
I need a good researcher writer to help ressearch and write a well done scholarly article about how early mistakes about the term Lamanite led to present day missunderstandings about race within the BOM.
My thesis is that the terms Lamanite and Nephite were not about race or skin color as many members and leaders have supposed. Instead the terms were used broadly to describe two different groups who’s status of righteousness or wickedness varied over time....and had nothing to do with race.
