When he (Elvis) started out, at a time when the Klu Klux Klan was still burning crosses, people thought he was black. He couldn't have cared less. He hung out at the blues clubs because the blues clubs had the music he liked. He sang in the style that he wanted to sing in. White people loved him, black people loved him, people who loved great music loved him. That's all that mattered.

Lisa Marie Presley from the book ELVIS BY THE PRESLEYS
