Don King singlehandedly turned a Donald Trump rally into a headline by slipping up and using the word “n*gga.”
While announcing Trump to a group of Black pastors in Ohio on Wednesday, the legendary boxing promoter got a tad more Black than anticipated and dropped the N-word.
“I told Michael Jackson, I said, if you are poor, you are a poor negro. If you are rich, you are a rich negro. If you are intelligent, intellectual, you are an intellectual negro,” he said.
And then … the bomb dropped. “If you are a dancing and sliding and gliding n*gga, I mean negro, you are a dancing and sliding negro, so dare not alienate because you cannot assimilate. You going to be a negro until you die.”
The moment turned out to be incredibly funny, though likely awkward and uncomfortable for the rest of the room. By the way, King is a Trump supporter and clearly being used to pull in the Black vote.
