Martin Luther King III left MSNBC host Toure stunned on Friday when he told him it’s important for blacks to “be engaged with the Tea Party.”

King’s comments came after Toure asked if the Democratic Party has done enough to justify the overwhelming support it sees from the black community.

“The party does not do enough,” King replied.

He also said blacks are not a “monolithic people” and they should feel free to be Democrats, Republicans or independents. Further, it’s important that blacks “be engaged with the Tea Party” as well, King added.

“Why would it be important for us to be engaged with the tea party?” Toure replied, with a look of total confusion on his face
