Book Review: The Curse of Ham: Race and Slavery in Early Judaism, Christianity, and Islam By David M. Goldenberg Thursday, May 1 2014 

I checked out this book as a challenge to my studies done by the Southern Writers and the Puritans on the Curse of Ham. I thought being a book published at Princeton University, the author would strongly challenge my position, even partially if not fully refute it. On the contrary, the author wrote this book in ignorance of the most important issue that I have cited in my work:

The book of Jasher (Which I drew attention to in this article) interpreted Genesis 9 and gave the Southern interpretation word for word. What does Goldenberg say about Jasher? Not a single word!

Go ahead and do a word search for “Jasher” in his book: (link)

He doesn’t mention it once.

Now to highlight the embarrassment let’s take a fresh look at Jasher’s passage:

The Book of Jasher, quoted in, Joshua 10:13 and 2 Samuel 1:18, states,

73: 30 So Moses took the city by his wisdom, and the children of Cush placed him on the throne instead of Kikianus king of Cush. 31 And they placed the royal crown upon his head, and they gave him for a wife Adoniah the Cushite queen, wife of Kikianus. 32 And Moses feared the Lord God of his fathers, so that he came not to her, nor did he turn his eyes to her.33 For Moses remembered how Abraham had made his servant Eliezer swear, saying unto him, Thou shalt not take a woman from the daughters of Canaan for my son Isaac. 34 Also what Isaac did when Jacob had fled from his brother, when he commanded him, saying, Thou shalt not take a wife from the daughters of Canaan, nor make alliance with any of the children of Ham. 35 For the Lord our God gave Ham the son of Noah, and his children and all his seed, as slaves to the children of Shem and to the children of Japheth, and unto their seed after them for slaves, forever.

When we examine Joshua’s and Samuel’s words we see that this book is not simply quoted by the authors. The entire work is referenced and suggested by the author to read as an authoritative history of the  Jewish people.

Now to Goldenberg’s big problem:

Referencing Jer. 13:23, a classic passage proving that the Kushite people were black, Goldenberg admits that the Kushites were black. Goldenberg states,

“Jeremiah is simply using the Kushite’s black skin as a metaphor for that which is unchangeable.” (pg. 38)

Now, if he admits that the Kushites were black, his entire work, which was written to disprove the traditional interpretation of the Hamite curse, is destroyed by Jasher.  Jasher states that the Kushites were a line of Ham, and,

“For the Lord our God gave Ham the son of Noah, and his children and all his seed, as slaves to the children of Shem and to the children of Japheth, and unto their seed after them for slaves, forever.”

To make matters even  worse for Mr. Goldenberg, in his Journal article, “It Is Permitted to Marry a Kushite”, (link) he again totally fails to mention a single word of this.

Sorry, Mr. Goldenberg, your attempt to justify the invasion, mass murder, torture, gang rape and continuing Genocide of my family fails.

I searched for a way to contact Mr. Goldenberg but found nothing.

Yankee Abolitionist Red-Republican Chickens Coming Home to Roost with Gay Rights Friday, Feb 28 2014 

The Yankee Abolitionists forced Abolition on us, forced Racial Integration on us, and now Yahowah is forcing homosexuality on them. Yankees getting exactly what they deserve. Oh how I love it!

The 14th Amendment and the Counter-Reformation Tuesday, Nov 5 2013 

Twenty Years of Congress: from Lincoln to Garfield By James Gillespie Blaine, pages 313-314,

“The consequences that flowed from this radical change in the basis of citizenship were numerous and weighty. Nor were those consequences left subject to construction or speculation. They were incorporated in the same section of the Amendment. The abuses which were formerly heaped on the citizens of one State by the legislative and judicial authority of another State were rendered thenceforth impossible. The language of the Fourteenth Amendment is authoritative and mandatory:

“No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty or property without due process of law,nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.” 

Under the force of these weighty inhibitions, the citizen of foreign birth [The New Catholic Invaders. – DS] cannot be persecuted by discriminating statutes, nor can the citizen of dark complexion be deprived of a single privilege or immunity which belongs to the white man. Nor can the Catholic, or the Protestant, or the Jew be placed under ban or subjected to any deprivation of personal or religious right. The provision is comprehensive and absolute, and sweeps away at once every form of oppression and every denial of justice. It abolishes caste [Translated: It removes even more protections the Protestants set up against the Catholic Church that forced them here in the first place. – DS ] and enlarges the scope of human freedom. It increases the power of the Republic to do equal and exact justice to all its citizens, and curtails the power of the States to shelter the wrong-doer or to authorize crime by a statute. To Congress is committed the authority to enforce every provision of the Fourteenth Amendment, and the humblest man who is denied the equal protection of the laws of a State can have his wrongs redressed before the Supreme Judiciary of the Nation.”

Isn’t it fascinating how the US Government has used blacks to work for the benefit of Rome for so long and no one ever picks up on it? Whenever the Government tells you that their policies are for the benefit of blacks, look for how the policy works for the benefit of Roman Catholics.

The Rape of White Women by Black Men in the Ante-Bellum South Friday, Oct 11 2013 

Diane Sommerville , in her, Rape and Race in the Nineteenth-Century South (The University of North Carolina Press, 2004) states,

“In 1918 the historian Ulrich B. Phillips, citing 105 cases of slaves accused of  raping white women, challenged the ‘oft-asserted Southern tradition that Negroes never violated white women before slavery was abolished.” (pg. 1)

Dabney on the Death of Agriculturalism and the Rise of the Yankee Industrialist Sin Cities Thursday, Apr 11 2013 

In Dabney’s THE DEPRESSION OF AMERICAN FARMING INTERESTS he describes the ongoing shift of his country from an Agricultural culture to the Yankee City life.  As always he draws the connections between Sociology and Economics.

Dabney points out that abolition impoverished the South and  forbid the Southern Blacks to have gainful employment available to them. The Yankee propaganda promised the blacks that free labor was better for them.  It turned out to be the exact opposite. On page 331-332 Dabney points out,

The census returns of that government testify that up to 1860 the Southern labor system had been most fruitful and most productive of public and private wealth of any labor system in the country. In 1860 the South, with a little more than 12,000,000 of souls, possessed taxable values to the amount of $6,760,000,000. In 1880, while the souls were 17,000,000, the taxable values amounted in round numbers to $3,250,000,000. That this immense collapse of wealth had not been the work chiefly of war is proved by the testimony of the government, whose census in 1870 found the Southern people still possessed of taxable values to the amount of about $4,780,000,000. The Southern labor system had been destroyed, and with it this fruitful fountain of national wealth was dried up to flow no more.

The affect on the morals of the people and their vitality was also greatly affected. Dabney pointed our how revolutions always begin in the big cities. For this and other reasons Jefferson stated, “great cities are but great ulcers upon the body politic.” Moreover, Dabney points out how the Yankee Sin City also is a festering pool of Monopolies,

“Now most Americans are not willing to let the equitable law of supply and demand regulate their gains, hence nearly every industry except the farmers is now organized into artificial monopolies. The prices of nearly all of the services of mechanical, manufacturing and mining labor are manipulated by the Knights of Labor and other labor unions.”

Because of the monopolies that come along with the greediness of Yankee Capitalist individualism, and the monopolies created by Unions reacting against them,

“the farming interests has to accept, for the immense mass of values it creates, less than the natural law of supply and demand would apportion them.” 334

Dabney sees free trade as a cure to many unjust monopolies created by the tariff,

“I refer chiefly to the so-called protective system of the United States, which is the prime source of the worst evils now crushing the farming interests in America. I have explained how the various rings and trusts operate to filch away the farmer’s earnings without giving him any just equivalent. It is the tariff which provides the conditions of success for all these monopolies. As long as these fatal conditions subsist it is not probable that the oppressed classes will find any remedy. American ingenuity will always invent ways to evade the operation of the principles of the common law against forestalling and regrating, [Supply and demand-DS] and any statutes passed by the States and by Congress, in a country burdened with such an administration of justice as ours. The resort to free trade would of itself abolish the conditions requisite to the success of these iniquities so that they would perish of themselves… Let Congress only pass, in one line, the righteous statute removing all tariffs upon school books, and this gigantic fraud would be checkmated at once. The best and cheapest printers in the world, in Leipsig, Halle, Brussels, Edinburg, would in a few weeks place in our seaports ship loads of American school books, printed in our own language, with perfect accuracy, at half the price of the monopolies.

Every one understands that when the government levies tariff imposts upon imported goods, the final consumer of those goods inevitably pays both the value of those goods, with reasonable commercial profits thereon, and the tariff tax in addition, increased by parallel charges of profits and commissions upon it also.” 335-336

America’s Youth Reject Yankee Capitalism 1967-1968 Friday, Apr 5 2013 

In the 1960s, the Hippie movement in the United States re-iterated the old complaints of the South. The Hippies complained that their parent’s generation and the ruling generation at their time were consumed with a meaningless rote pursuit of mammon. They were right! But wait! Isn’t that exactly what the Ante-bellum South complained about?

Dabney’s Defence of Virgina, page 325,

“Now we emphatically and proudly admit that Southern society has not learned the frugality of New England; which is, among the middle classes, a mean, in-hospitable, grinding penuriousness, sacrificing the very comfort of children, and the kindly cheer of the domestic board, to the Yankee penates, Mammon and Lucre; and among the upper classes a union of domestic scantiness and stinginess with external ostentation and profusion ; a frugality which is ‘rich in the parlour, and poor in the kitchen’. The idea of the Southern planter is the rational and prudent use of wealth to procure the solid comfort of himself, his children, and his servants at home, coupled with a simple and unostentatious equipage abroad, and a generous hospitality to rich and poor.”

This was the exact complaint that the Hippies expressed:

THANK YOU FOR THE ADMISSION!
