Did God Curse Africans Through Noah?

Did God prophesy that Black Africans would be slaves of Whites through Noah in what we call is the curse of Ham?

No!

Ham had four sons according to Genesis 10:6:

"The sons of Ham: Cush, Egypt, Put and Canaan".

Noah and not God cursed only one of Ham's sons “Canaan”.

As proof Genesis 9: 24-25 reads,

When Noah awoke from his wine and found out what his youngest son had done to him,  he said,

Cursed be Canaan!

  The lowest of slaves

  will he be to his brothers.”

If this was a prophecy by Noah than it was fulfilled when the sons of Shem (Semites) Jews came out of Egypt and ruled over the Canaanites by taking over their land. Exodus 3:17 reads,

And I have promised to bring you up out of your misery in Egypt into the land of the Canaanites, Hittites, Amorites, Perizzites, Hivites, and Jebusites—a land flowing with milk and honey.

This statement by Noah even if interpreted as prophecy never applied to the other sons of Ham who lived and migrated into Southern parts of the world known as Africa. These other sons were: Cush, Egypt, Put, etc.

This is a classic case on how bad interpretation can justify the Churches sin and lead her into so much misery and the reaping of judgment/discipline (1 Peter 4:17), especially when the small minority of White Protestants and Catholics in America/Europe tolerated or aggressively practiced racism/slavery and rationalized it's evil with scriptural proofs that were incorrect.
