    1. Ham was not cursed.
    2.Canaan was cursed by Noah.
    3. A servant is not a slave or in bondage.
    4. Noah was probable still inebriated.

    So No the bible does not support the idea that blacks/Africans should be the slaves to anyone or other race

    Slaves as were the Israelites...God's chosen people, who He punished with cruel slavery for their wickedness???

    Like all GOOD fathers, God punishes His children for their disobedience.

    Hebrews 12:5 And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him:

    6 For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.

    7 If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not?

    8 But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons.

    9 Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live?

    10 For they verily for a few days chastened us after their own pleasure; but he for our profit, that we might be partakers of his holiness.

    11 Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are excerised thereby.

    As the commandment of God states:

    Exodus 21:16 And he that stealeth a man, and selleth him, or if he be found in his hand, he shall surely be put to death.

    Which is exactly what happened to our ancestors during the African Slave Trade!

    No way does God condone that!

    Are blacks the rightful slaves of others according to the Bible?

    I'd have to say no, but many blacks are indeed among the children of God.

    Open your bible and go back to Leviticus and find out what uncover nakedness means and come back.
    The first thing about the bible is if you don't really understand it you will come up with some crazy stuff. Understanding is fundamental all across life.
    It is best to start with Genesis. Get a true understanding then move on. If you don't understand Genesis then everything else will be messed up.

    They May represent God but they are NOT GOD....especially one that for all intends and purposes has become a drunkard.

    Peace!

    Prophets are Man and do sometimes disobey or are reluctant to do that which God Commands, so it is necessary to know the difference.
    In one instance God Commanded the Prophet Moses to speak to the rock so that it might bring forth water but instead Moses struck it......Prophets do not lose their individual rights and volition nor are they automatons.
    Numbers 20:1-13.
