    I personally couldn't care less; I am more annoyed Nick Cannon is allowed to put out an album but I would like to see NT's thoughts on this...





    The African-American comedian and host of “America’s Got Talent,” 33, recorded an album in another persona. When his latest collection of songs — his first in 11 years — is released April 1, he’ll join the ranks of past alter-ego equipped stars including David Bowie (Ziggy Stardust) and Garth Brooks (Chris Gaines). Eyebrows, however, have been raised by Cannon’s choice of a white alter ego, one “Connor Smallnut”; a persona which requires Cannon to cover himself in whiteface make-up to slide into.

    “It's official... I'm White!!!” he posted on Instagram on Sunday under a photo of himself as Smallnut, whom he describes as the musician behind “White People Party Music.” “#WHITEPEOPLEPARTYMUSIC #Wppm in stores April 1st!!!!!!Dude Go Get It!!!Join The Party!!!! #GoodCredit #DogKissing #BeerPong #FarmersMarkets #FistPumping #CreamCheeseEating #RacialDraft "Bro I got drafted!!”

    Considering that there isn't some shortage of White roles or a shortage in the variety of roles white actors get then I have absolutely no problems with this. I mean hell we have a movie coming out called kings of Egypt with an all white cast :rolleyes

    This is not ok Nick.

    They are getting the pulpit ready for his press conference style apology and official resignation from broadcast television.

    This was a very bad career move.

    Although he hasn't been a fav artist of mine - I respected how he worked for his positions in the entertainment industry. Like O I didn't know Nick Cannon worked for this show. Didn't do that bad of a job.



    ....Why the hell would he do this?
