“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.
