Pastor Manning: Black people will remain poor for ever

James David Manning is the chief pastor of the ATLAH World Missionary Church located in New York City where he has been since 1981.  Manning was born in Red Springs, North Carolina on February 20, 1947.  He grew up there and picked cotton and tobacco as a boy.  The day he graduated from high school, Manning took a bus to New York.  He became radicalized in the 1960’s and spent three and a half years in prison for burglary, robbery, larceny, and other charges.  While in prison, Manning became a devout Christian.  He does not shy away from sharing his story about his life of crime and how God helped turn his life around.

In 1985, Manning graduated from Union Theological Seminary in the City of New York with a Master of Divinity degree.  He also has a Doctor of Philosophy degree which he earned from his own ATLAH Theological Seminary.  Manning has used his platform as a minister and pastor to speak out about several issues including the gentrification of Harlem, criticizing Barack Obama for his parents interracial relationship, criticizing other black leaders including Charles Rangel and Al Sharpton, and speaking out against homosexuality.

Manning has posted several video messages on his church’s website as well as on YouTube that address his feelings about the plight of African Americans and black men in particular.  While some of his views are considered controversial, what Manning has to say does cause one to stop and consider what things, past and present, continue to contribute to and perpetuate the plight of black people in America.

The following video clip is of Manning discussing the mindset and psychology that contributes to black people being poor.  He also discusses why black people being poor is not likely to change.  To hear more about his views and why he feels this way, check out the clip below.

  1. Now this is how you can tell the difference between a real man of God verses a fake false wannabe. Anytime a so-called preacher steps forward and speaks words that are not biblical, he does not know God on a personal level… He does not have a personal relationship with God. He is built up behind the spirit of religion / lover of his own self…

    Genesis 15:13-16

    Then the Lord told Abram, “You can be sure that your descendants will be strangers in a foreign land, and they will be oppressed as slaves for four hundred years. *But (I / GOD) will “PUNISH” the nation that enslaves them, and in the (END) they will come away with “(GREAT WEALTH)”. But you will die in peace, at a ripe old age. *Plz note: (which meant the oppression of our people would not start in Abrams time)…
    16. After four generations your descendants (WILL) *”RETURN here to this “LAND”, when the (SIN) of the “AMORITIES” has run its course.

    “AMORITIES / EVIL RACIST WHITE DEMONS”… (I wish I could really say that, but only God knows who all the true Amorites are. I believe their faces are not all white, so I must becareful what I write until I hear from God because I have seen too much madness this pass year.)

  2. I do believe the Amorities are the evil racist white demons… I just don’t believe all the faces of the true Amorities are all white-men, I believe its a mixture.

    I am also interested in hearing some factual information /DEFINITION of a true (AMORITE)… I’m looking for a spiritual definition, not an opinion of the flesh. God is a spirit / he said those who worship him (WILL) worship him in “SPIRIT and in TRUTH”… so please don’t go militant activist and black on me. I’m looking for some true spirit-man feed back. I don’t need it all long and drawn out thank you plezzz…wink!

    Now I sit and read so much mumble jumble in these rooms, give me something factual that’s everlasting from our God.
    The first man who brings religion into my request: I’m going to scream….!!!!!

  3. Pastor. Manning do you feel that way about the Lumbee Tribe of Indians, who lives not far from you in Red Springs, NC,. They have been seeking recognition for there Tribe for several years. Your are lumping all blacks and poor people in the same category, there are poor people that do work and pay taxes as you do, there are also poor whites and blacks that can’t find a job that pays decent wages, but they work them anyway. Pastor. Manning if you are laid-off or terminated, hospitals and Doctors Office will not see you without insurance, so should we just die, just because we are poor. Robeson County, NC., is one of the poorest counties in the State Of North Carolina. Everyone born in 1940’s, 1950’s and 1960’s if you live in rural counties, you probably pick cotton, primed tobacco, and other farming of vegetables. Today only about 3% percent of that industry is left. I have seen the people of Robeson County drive over 100 miles one way to a job, do you call that lazy, laying up in the bed waiting on government handouts, besides in North Carolina there’s not much to be handed out, all government programs have been cut. Except Foreign Aid to other countries for wars, in which us deadbeat taxpayers pay for. Why did you pick your own race, when economically several races are suffering for jobs. If you see a poor person looking for a job employ him at Atlah Ministery. Do your part to help, rather then run your mouth about all sectors of America, being poor and lazy.
