In my years of closely following Middle Eastern developments, I've witnessed an unprecedented shift in the landscape of news coverage.

Hollywood has unleashed its latest biblical motion picture on the public. Following up last month’s box office blockbuster “Son of God” which featured a European in the lead role of Jesus, Hollywood is hoping for similar box office success from the film “Noah” which recently opened in theaters. Like “Son of God”, the film Noah features European actors in lead roles.
A list actor Russell Crowe who plays Noah leads the European cast playing Noah’s family. Through the magic of Hollywood, audiences are to believe that a boatload of Europeans would re-populate the world with all its ethnic diversity contrary to the science that proves that human kind originated out of Africa leaving DNA footprints through out the globe. So certainly in order to line this bible story up with DNA science, Noah and his family would have to have been dark skinned Africans.
The film has also re-started conversations around the religious dogma about the so-called curse of Ham that white people used to justify slavery against Africans but according to Min Paul Scott, founder of the Messianic Afrikan Nation, its much deeper than that as he documents in his article “Black and Ugly as Ever: Noah and the Curse of Blackness” on AllHipHop.Com.
Min. Paul Scott drops in again on Militant Minded Radio to elaborate on these discussions surrounding Noah and the Curse of Ham.
