Uncle Tom? Harlem Pastor Posts Anti-Obama Flyers

He calls the president "evil" and suggests he is an "Uncle Tom."

Harlem's Rev. James David Manning (Google)

Michael J. Feeney of the New York Daily News is reporting that the Rev. James David Manning has been distributing anti-Obama flyers throughout Harlem. He reports that Harlemites have had enough of the local pastor posting signs at his prominently located church that spew hateful messages about President Obama. Black-on-black crime strikes again.

Manning has put up "Obama Is Evil" and "He Used Black Vote to Uncle Tom For Wall St." on the towering sign outside the ATLAH World Missionary Church on the bustling corner of Lenox Ave. and W. 123rd St.

A church next to Manning's was so put off by the signs, officials posted their own -- to make sure nobody thought their church had anything to do with ATLAH. "This church is not affiliated with the church on the corner. We Support President Barack Obama," reads a sign above the front door of Greater Bethel A.M.E. Church.

The controversial sign at ATLAH, which Manning changes from time to time, has targeted Obama since he took office -- and has become an attraction for pedestrians, as well as tourists passing by on double-decker buses.

Can you say "racist"? The good reverend's obsession with bashing President Obama with hateful rhetoric is tired. We get it -- you hate President Obama. We understand that it's a great time to be racist, but this is going too far. How about using fact, not spewing hateful rhetoric, to critique the president's policies instead of the man himself. This language is unacceptable, especially from a so-called man of God.
