So, I do believe this blessing/curse was to affect the descendants of each brother. For how long, I cannot say.
I think that the passage is clearly to be understood as referring to the decendents. I do not see it as a "forever" curse, however. The Scriptures quickly become silent in regards to the three divisions. The focus switches from the Shemite line to Abraham's line finally to Jacob's (Israel). All other families and nations soon become Gentiles in general.

By the way, we cannot know from the Scriptures that the Ethiopian Eunuch was Hamite. By that time decendents of Jacob had scattered all over that region of the earth.
