Nick Cannon Knows Humor

Nick Cannon Wears 'White Face' Make Up
Nick Cannon provided fodder for people who like to talk about anything to do with race because mimicking decades old, retread social commentary is their comfort zone. Nick donned white face for a fictional character he created called Connor Smallnut, because the first sign of inventive comedy is a silly character name. Nick posted the Connor Smallnut photo to Instagram with a whole bunch of hashtags to promote his new album, White Party People music.

“It’s official… I’m White!!! #WHITEPEOPLEPARTYMUSIC #Wppm in stores April 1st!!!!!!Dude Go Get It!!!Join The Party!!!!”

Oh, yeah, I’m exclamative about Nick’s new album. Nick thought up the entire outrageous campaign from the guest bedroom Mariah lets him use in the mansion as his ‘visionary space’. It looks like Nick really hit a home run with this satirical scheme, finally, a big back-at-you to all the folks who refer to him as Mariah Carey’s water boy. Could a water boy come up with rehashing a whiteface bit that’s only been done by Eddie Murphy, the Wayans, and a number of other black comedians for several decades now? Nay, Nick Cannon is a special kind of genius. I’m already jealous of the five people who will get to own his album. I bet Mariah lets him sit at the big boy table for a special celebratory dinner.

    In his defense, Mariah Carey is fabulously wealthy and has giant cans. So who gets the last laugh?

    Is it just me or does he look a little like Andy Samberg?

    Forgot the contacts. Those coal black eyes give the beast away.

    Eddie definitely did the best white dude.

    “What a silly negro!”

    I bet this is just some contrived April fools joke.
