Nostalgia? So all a heritage is, is nothing more then nostalgia? Tell that to Norwegians who has a heritage spanning a thousands of years spanning
back who now has to watch it go the way of the dodo bird because of massive immigration. Same for Sweden, Denmark, the United Kingdom, Germany +++.
Because of some idiotic belief that we're "helping" immigrants by allowing them to immigrate into another country, I and other fellow Europeans
have to give up our culture, our way of life and our countries future.
If you REALLY wanted to help someone, you'd do it in their country so that them and theirs could have a secure future in their own country so they
too can have a heritage and a place to call their own.
"The Curse of Ham (more properly a curse of Canaan) is the incident in the Book of Genesis (Genesis 9:20-27) in which Noah curses the offspring of his
son Ham (specifically the fourth son, Canaan), for an act done by Ham. The objective of the story was to justify the subjection of the Canaanites to
the Israelites, but racial interpretations of the "curse of Ham" were used two thousand years later to justify the enslavement of Black
Genesis tells how Noah, the first "husbandman" (farmer), was also the first to cultivate the vine and make wine. The drunken Noah fell asleep naked,
and his son Ham "saw his father's nakedness" (this phrase is important in interpretations of the story). Ham told his two brothers, Shem and Japheth,
who then covered Noah with a cloak while averting their eyes. When Noah awoke "he knew what his youngest son had done to him" and delivered a curse,
not on Ham, but on Ham's son Canaan, who was condemned to become a slave to Shem and Japheth. The debate over the questions raised by this story,
especially why Canaan was cursed if Ham had sinned, has raged for over two thousand years."
and the connection to the slave trade:
"The explanation that black Africans, as the "sons of Ham", were cursed, possibly "blackened" by their sins, was advanced only sporadically during the
middle ages, but became increasingly common during the slave trade of the 18th and 19th centuries. The justification of slavery itself through the
sins of Ham was well suited to the ideological interests of the elite; with the emergence of the slave trade, its racialized version justified the
exploitation of a ready supply of African labour.
In the parts of Africa where Christianity flourished in the early days, while it was still illegal in Rome, this idea never took hold, and its
interpretation of scripture was never adopted by the African Coptic Churches. A modern Amharic commentary on Genesis notes the 19th century and
earlier European theory that blacks were subject to whites as a result of the "curse of Ham", but calls this a false teaching unsupported by the text
of the Bible, emphatically pointing out that this curse fell not upon all descendants of Ham but only on the descendants of Canaan, and asserting that
it was fulfilled when Canaan was occupied by both Semites (Israel) and Japethites (ancient Philistines). The commentary further notes that Canaanites
ceased to exist politically after the Third Punic War (149 BC), and that their current descendants are thus unknown and scattered among all
A bit of copy-pasta from wikipedia. will try to find a presentation done by someone who did research on the jewish link to the slave trade.
It is a good idea to start watching it from 0:10.20 as it is there the presentation itself begins.
