How are you going to say no he wasn't? Elvis said, "The only thing a black man is good for is shinning his shoes." If that is not racist, I don't know what is. He also use to go to the Apollo and copy styles off many of the acts there and add it to his style. Why don't you look up the real history of Elvis. Study Chuck Berry and then look at Elvis and you will see Elvis did nothing but steal ideas. Little Richard was also a guy that people took ideas from.
and that was a bulls**t rumor that somebody started up with no source to prove Elvis said that
and I know Elvis was influenced by Chuck Berry, but name one time where Elvis didn't give the dudes that influenced him recognition? You can't because he was always giving them credit for what he did musically.
