Answer: It is generally believed that the curse which Noah pronounced upon Canaan was the origin of the Black race. Certain it is that when Noah said, "Cursed be Canaan, a servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren," he pictured the future of the Colored race. They have been and are a race of servants, but now in the dawn of the twentieth century, we are all coming to see this matter of service in its true light and to find that the only real joy in life is in serving others; not bossing them. There is no servant in the world a good as a good Colored servant, and the joy that he gets from rendering faithful service is one of the purest joys there is in the world.
That one is particularly disturbing because in the Oct 8 1977 AWAKE! they mocked Catholics by saying, "Even up to a hundred years ago the Catholic Church held the view that blacks were cursed by God."
And then again in Feb 8 1982 AWAKE! they said, "Have the churches of Christendom always treated everyone on the same basis? ... For centuries the Catholic Church taught that Negroes were a cursed race."
LESS THAN a hundred years ago they were teaching the same thing! The Catholics got rid of that teaching before the WT did but they use it show that the Catholics must not be the "true religion" ... oh, the hypocrisy.
