I certainly do not know all things, or even many things I would like to know, so I don't know if "justification" of the past is the best word to use or context to ponder the subject in, but I do defend the doctrine and policies and procedures of past prophets in their proper historical context. I have done so with this subject on my blog: http://www.truthwillprevail.xyz/2021/02/apostles-prophets-and-gods-former.html and for a soul-edifying and uplifting detailed account of the receipt of the revelation itself, see: https://www.fairlatterdaysaints.org/blog/2018/05/31/elder-bruce-r-mcconkies-witness-of-the-1978-revelation-on-the-priesthood

Bruce R McConkie, CES conference Aug 1978 quoted in Sermons and Writings of Bruce R. McConkie: “Forget everything that I have said, or what President Brigham Young or President George Q. Cannon or whoever has said in days past that is contrary to the present revelation. We spoke with a limited understanding and without the light and knowledge that has now come into the world. We get our truth line upon line and precept upon precept. We have now had added a new flood of intelligence and light on this particular subject, and it erases all the darkness and all the views and all the thoughts of the past. They don’t matter anymore . . . It doesn’t make a particle of difference what anybody ever said about the Negro matter before the first day of June of this year (1978). It is a new day and a new arrangement, and the Lord has now given the revelation that sheds light into the world on this subject.”

That brought tears to my eyes. He is an amazing man and I honor him. I still, to this day, remember hearing the announcement that "all worthy males will be able to receive the priesthood" and feeling thrilled for that decision.
