The black race has been the topic of many discussions recently, and some of the issues brought to the fore include the view that many feel that while black people dominate in sports, music and entertainment, they fail to get the respect due. Serena Williams, Usain Bolt and Bill Cosby are cited as examples. There always seems to be a force of some kind trying to bring them down, and what their Caucasian counterparts are able to 'get away with, they are not and are in fact highlighted even more negatively.

In politics and family life, it is said that in black-led/governed countries, there is greater oppression and more incidences of economic failure, crime and violence.

Statistics show that more black men are in prison than any other race, and more live below the poverty line than other races. Theologically, many believe Genesis 9:18-25 and Genesis 10:6 that the black race comes from Ham's lineage - which is Canaan - which was cursed by Noah for uncovering his father's nakedness. This means that Ham/Canaan moved from his place of legitimacy to becoming technically illegitimate by the declarations of Noah who declared slavery on Ham/Canaan (Genesis 9: 25). He was, in essence, declared a 'bastard.' Furthermore, according to Psalm 78:51, Psalm 105: 23 and 27 and Psalm 106: 22, the original Egyptian race was black, and Egypt was regarded as the land of Ham. Based on this, does it mean that the black race is under a bastard curse?

A 'bastard curse' is more than just someone being born out of wedlock. It involves serious negative effects on the lineage and lasts for generations. It perpetuates inferiority, rejection and the cycle of children born out of wedlock, fatherlessness and opens the door for unforgiveness, hatred, intense anger and poverty. Statistics show that the black race has the highest number of abortions reported.




Here are some of my observations. For the most part:

- Caucasians go to fast-food restaurants to work, while black people go there to eat.

- A black man would pay US$200 to be tattooed by someone of a different race. Their black children are being forced out of proper schooling and they are encouraged to sit in the lap of welfare and be controlled by career politicians.

- Our black race would go to a Chinese-owned beauty store to pay for Indian and Caucasian 'hair' and products from lord-knows-where to bleach their skin, so they can 'look good'. That's an inferiority complex.

- Black people are killing each other, while other nations stick with their own race.

- Black people spend millions on phone credit to chat rubbish with others, while other races save their money.

- Black men are on the verge of becoming the number-one sperm donors worldwide and don't even realise that something like that could lead to incest.

- The Jews, for example, give priority to their own in business. Meanwhile, our Black people are so divided, they would rather destroy or sell out another of their own.

- Black people have allowed themselves to become marketing guinea pigs. Every new thing that comes on the scene, our Black people seem to slurp it up and other races are making millions from them.

- Who promotes racism and ignorance more than our own Black brothers and sisters who market the clothing lines, shoes, fast food and tribal haircuts without knowing the roots from which they come?

- How many other races do you see on the streets begging?

According to statistics on the WebMd archives online,

- Diabetes is 60 per cent more prevalent among blacks.

- Blacks are 2.5 times more likely to suffer limb amputations than whites and 5.6 times more likely to suffer kidney diseases.

- Blacks are three times more likely to die from asthma than whites and sarcoidosis (an inflammatory disease that affects multiple organs in the body, but mostly the lungs and lymph glands) is 16 times more common among blacks than whites.

- Cancer is 50 per cent more likely in blacks.

- More blacks get strokes than whites.

We have a dilemma on our hands, and it cannot be dealt with through civil rights. We have to unite through the power of the almighty God to break this dilemma. We have to stop killing each other and instead build each other up.
