ATLAH World Missionary Church Pastor Dr. James David Manning asserted this week that Baltimore residents rioted after the death of Freddie Gray because black people were not ready for a black president.
In his Wednesday video broadcast, Manning said that he didn’t have any “hatred for the idiots who voted for Obama,” but “sometimes when you speak the truth it sounds like or feels like hate.”
According to Manning, black people did not deserve a black president because “young black men” had not accomplished anything, and instead believed that they were “owed” government benefits because their ancestors were slaves.
“Hamite [or black] people were saying we should have a black president simply because we were once slaves in this nation,” he said. “It’s like saying because I went swimming one day, I should be the captain of the world’s largest aircraft carrier. You know nothing about a boat. You just got wet swimming one day.”
“To put a Hamite in office just because and only because — there was no other reason — is that Americans were once slaves,” Manning continued. “I stated as well that there would be riots in the streets. I stated that young people born after the plagues will look around and say, ‘We don’t have to accomplish anymore. We don’t have to discipline ourselves anymore. We don’t need a family structure anymore. We don’t need to be hardworking anymore. We can just demand because we were slaves, we ought to be given a penthouse, we ought to be given government subsidies.'”
The pastor declared that “the proof is in the pudding.”
“If you can become the president of American without every proving that you should be and a nation now has a leader that comes from absolutely out of slavery, and not our of an understanding then why would black youth want to complete high school?” he asked. “We don’t have to earn our way in life anymore, we can demand simply because we were slaves.”
But Manning said that the real problem was that white liberals were allowing blacks to have power “because they were once slaves.”
“Give them the presidency, give them mayors office, give them the state attorneys office,” he said. “Give them food stamps because they were all slaves.”
“What we see now, you can attribute it to the ignorance and the barbarism of black people, but you can also surely know that it’s been unleashed by white liberals and Fox News watchers that have turned loose this plague of black people with unaccountability on America,” he concluded. “Don’t blame blackie for this. This one we’re going to lay at the feet of whitey.”

Trump’s Axios interview put his ‘willful ignorance’ on full display for the country: Ex-RNC official
In a column for the conservative Bulwark, the former spokesperson for the Republican National Committee said the interview Donald Trump participated in with Jonathan Swan of Axios should be put to rest any doubts anyone might have had that the president is out of his depth.
Reacting to the interview done in conjunction with HBO, Tim Miller -- who is now an advisor to the Never Trumper Lincoln Project -- claimed the president's comments about the CoVID-19 pandemic and resulting U.S. death toll that has raced passed 150,000 is a sign "Trump is fundamentally incapable of recognizing the true nature of what he calls the 'invisible enemy.'"
