Famed boxing promoter and convicted murderer Don King, a master of reading a crowd and getting them fired up, accidentally said the N-word at a Trump rally before assuring his laughing audience that he meant to say "Negro." The moment came when King was recounting how he told Michael Jackson that he could never "assimilate" into white America, so he shouldn't "alienate" them.

"...America needs Donald Trump, we need Donald Trump, especially black people. Because, you got to understand, my black brothers and sisters, they told me "you gotta try to emulate and imitate the white man and then you can be successful." So we tried that. So they said "If you can get some money, you can do this here." I told Michael Jackson, I said, if you are poor, you are a poor Negro — I would use the N-word — if you are rich, you are a rich Negro. If you are a talented intellectual, you are an intellectual Negro. If you are a dancing and sliding and gliding n---er, I mean Negro. You're a dancing and sliding and gliding Negro. So dare not alienate because you can't assimilate, so you are going to be a Negro till you die."
