Priscilla Presley said Elvis adored Black people.

Despite being referred to as the “King of Rock and Roll,” cultural appropriation issues are part of Elvis’ legacy.

“For a very long time, it was commonly believed that Elvis was racist. He had no biases. He never exhibited racism. Elvis had pals of various races, including Black people. He loved their music and the way they dressed. He loved hanging out with Black musicians,”
Priscilla mentioned Elvis’ connections to Fats Domino and Sammy Davis Jr.

“His genuine enjoyment of everyone, especially Black people, was apparent. He had absolutely no prejudice. He wasn’t at all racist, “Priscilla continued. “I guess you could say that this is a really scary time. Because it almost looks as though we are looking for anything in everyone that we can use to expose them in some way, the current scenario is so terrible.”

Elvis initially met Priscilla when she was just 14 years old. Although Priscilla claimed in her memoirs that they didn’t start dating until after the wedding, they were married when she was 21 and he was 32.

Morgan questioned whether Elvis “would have survived this weird cancel culture that we now have to face.”

“It’s a fantastic question, I think of that frequently, before becoming political,” Priscilla said in response.

The British talk show presenter asked her to address “what’s now going on in the U.S.”

Priscilla replied that he wouldn’t believe it. “I think none of us believe what is going on right now. It basically affects the entire world, and this is unprecedented for us. But it is confusing to us as a country. It is rather perplexing. For the first time, I’m concerned about my future as well as the futures of my children and grandchildren due to how uncertain it is. As he did with Nixon, Elvis would undoubtedly approach the president, put his foot down, and ask, “What’s going on?” “When asked what she finds most worrying, Priscilla said, “The state that we’re in.”

“I don’t know what happened to freedom. “Be very careful what you say and how you say it,” she said, adding that she wasn’t sure if freedom was still possible in this country. “I think this is a terribly dangerous period,”
