Peter Lang Publishing. VanderKam, James Claire Place the mirror, standing up, in a bowl of black salt , which is used in many hoodoo traditions to provide protection and repel negativity. In the bowl, facing the mirror, place something that represents your target - the person who is cursing you. This can be a photo, a business card, a small doll, an item that they own, or even their name written on a piece of paper. DeAwnah is a practitioner of traditional folk magic in north Georgia, and says, "I use mirrors a lot.
It comes in handy to break curses and hexes, especially if I'm not exactly sure who the source is. It bounces everything back to the person who originally cast it. A similar technique is to create a mirror box.
Black Curse Powder
You may use black salt if you wish to add a little more magical oomph. Wear safety glasses if you opt for this approach. Many people use poppets, or magical dolls , in spellwork as a tool of offense. However, the poppet can also be used as a defensive tool. Create a poppet to represent yourself - or whoever the victim of the curse is - and charge the poppet with the task of taking on the damage in your place.
This is actually pretty simple because the poppet acts as a decoy of sorts. The best way to get rid of it? This process is known as sacralization, the development of theological and religious beliefs to serve the interest of a particular ethnic or racial group. I knew that something did not sound right about the curse of Ham theory when I first heard it as a teenager. A white minister was giving me the biblical reason why my people and I had to endure the humiliation of American racism. Because I couldn't prove otherwise and because my favorite Bible, the famous Old Scofield Reference Bible 5 , which had become the official version of American fundamentalism, endorsed the curse of Ham theory, I had little recourse other than to accept it.
The Church in an American Racial Culture
After all, those promoting it were "trained" in the Bible and theology at the finest fundamentalist institutions in our country-institutions, by the way, that at that time would not allow blacks to enroll as students. With the endorsement of the Old Scofield Bible, coupled with the legal status of American segregation, the myth was firmly established and embedded in the American psyche.
Never mind, of course, that the Bible says that Canaan, Ham's son, was cursed, not Ham himself. Thus, only one of Ham's four sons, not all four, were cursed. How then could all black people everywhere be cursed? Never mind that the Bible places limitations on curses-only three or four generations at most Ex. Never mind that the curse on Canaan and his descendants-"Now there, you are cursed, and none of you shall be freed from being slaves"-finds its most obvious fulfillment in the ongoing defeat and subjugation of Canaan by Israel Josh.
And never mind that God says that curses based on disobedience are reversed when people repent and turn again to obedience Ex.
Are Black People Cursed? The Curse of Ham
This is certainly sufficient to negate the Christian endorsement of the American enslavement of black Christians. Myths, however, do not need facts; they simply need supporters. Because the myth of inferiority needed as much theological support as possible to make it stick, some Christians turned to the New Testament to corroborate the Old Testament verses on masters and slaves.
