No, though you can suffer negative repercussions for the misdeeds of your ancestors. Like a mother having a child out of wedlock facing much greater odds of growing up in poverty, going to jail, being mentally ill, being homeless - regardless of race.
The child didn't do anything wrong, but the odds of poor life outcomes are two to three times higher if the mother keeps the child and raises them outside of marriage.
There is NO SUCH THING as generational curses. People make bad decisions & the result is bad outcome. Bad outcomes are consequences of bad life choices & decision making no more no less.
Bad outcomes can pertain to individuals or generations. Individuals & generations based upon particular environments make bad, uninformed, or unenlightened decisions & life choices that can have repercussions(not curses) individually or even generationally. For example, many lower income individuals are that way because of bad, even stupid decisions. They refuse to think about the ramifications of their decisions thus they & their children suffer. Unless their children become more informed & educated, they will make the same inane decisions that their parents make, thus the generational cycle of poverty continues.
In conclusion. bad outcome results from poor decision making, lack of planning, & thinking in the present instead of having long-term thinking. People learn what is in their familial & surrounding environment. If it is bad, they will become negative & impart this negative teaching unto their children & so on down the generations.

If you knew the lives of your ancestors at least three generations ago; and you saw a pattern beingrepeated down the line. Is it fate? Karma? Or do you think the buck can stop with you?
