“In their writings, medieval Christians began to spread their belief in the ethnic class distinction of human races mentioned in Genesis, and they even added a new class to it. Therefore, the dominant belief was that the clergy and saints were the descendants of Sam, while knights were the descendants of Japheth; and the poor were the descendants of Ham, all of whom were the sons of Noah (pbuh). That matter reached its climax in 1964 when US Senator Robert Byrd of West Virginia actually used the story of Noah as a justification to keep the policy of racial discrimination in the United States. “
