Don King, a famous boxing promoter was picked by Mr. Trump to introduce him at a meeting of black pastors on Wednesday in Ohio. King is an African American who has argued that “America needs Donald Trump.”
Donald Trump is now coming under scrutiny after King accidentally used a racial slur in his introductory speech for the Republican presidential nominee.
“We need Donald Trump, especially black people,” King said. “Because you have to understand, brothers and sisters — they tried to tell me you have to emulate and imitate the white man and then you can be successful. So we tried that.”
King continued, “I told Michael Jackson — I said, if you poor, you are a poor negro.”
“I would use the N-word. But if you rich, you are a rich negro. If you are intelligent, intellectual, you are an intellectual negro. If you are dancing and sliding and gliding n*****,” he said, laughing as he continued, “I mean, I mean, negro. You are dancing and sliding and gliding negro.”
“So dare not alienate because you cannot assimilate. So you know, you going to be a negro ’til you die,” he added.
