Boxing promoter Don King was introducing Donald Trump on Wednesday morning when dropped the N-word on live television and destroyed Trump latest attempt to use African-Americans as props in his ‘I’m not a racist’ propaganda effort.
“I told Michael Jackson, I said if you’re poor, you’re a poor Negro– I won’t use the n-word,” he recounted. “But if you’re rich, you’re a rich Negro. If you’re intelligent and intellectual, you’re an intelligent and intellectual Negro.”
“If you’re a dancing and sliding and gliding n*gger– I mean negro,” he corrected, as Trump and the rest of the room erupted in laughter, “you’re a dancing and sliding and gliding Negro.”
“So they’re not alienatin’, because you can not assimilate,” he said. “You’re going to be a Negro until you die.”
Trump thanked King as he took the stage. “Ah, there’s only one Don King, only one Don,” he said whimsically.
