Nick Cannon Just Got Impossibly Offensive

Oh, friends, what a great big shame this is: it turns out that Nick Cannon is kind of an offensive, borderline racist douchebag! isn't that fun? Hint: no, it is not fun. It is disappointing and shameful and sad, and man, is it creepy.

Nick posted this photo on Instagram last night, and if you could get past the creepiness, you can see that he's all done up to look white. There's the wig, the makeup, and the horrible, awful choice to "dress up" as someone of a different race ... it's all there! And here's his jovial little message that went along with it:

It's official... I'm White!!! #WHITEPEOPLEPARTYMUSIC #Wppm #in stores April 1st!!!!!! Dude Go Get It!!!Join The Party!!!! #DogKissing #BeerPong #FarmersMarkets #FistPumping #CreamCheeseEating #RacialDraft #"Bro I got drafted!!"

Since this is supposed to be for Nick's new album, that "White People Party Music" -- which, by the way, IS NOT A GOOD TITLE -- it looks like this could turn into a regular thing. More proof for this nightmare is in a video that Nick also posted last night:



If Nick can't see why this is not OK, then what a sad, story statement about just everything. Nick can't choose an entire race to mock and impersonate like this, he just can't. It's wrong for him to put on whiteface to do "White People Party Music," just like it would be wrong for some washed up white guy to put on blackface and do "Black People Party Music." It's a terrible, uncomfortable thing, and he really should have known better.

Seriously this is not okay. You can't claim racism when someone goes around in "black face" but then allow someone else to do the same in "white face" ie The movie White Girls was a blatantly racist movie. But nobody says jack because apparently it's okay to be a racist as long as it's aimed at white folks. WTF?

I am so tired of this reverse discrimination! He should know better! If a white man did the same thing, everyone would be losing their #$%$!!!

Not cool!

First "black face" on white people has a 100 year history of insults to blacks mocking them. remember your history. black face was used by white performers on stage at clubs/bars were blacks were not aloud to go into. and if they tryed to see were beat or KILLED. Even today a republican rep. from north or south dakota has written legislation that gives business the right to deny services to BLACKS. you broght up "white Girls" you forgot one "Soulman" where a white student dresses up as a blackman to get into college. and "april" maria is half white. no your history. idiots

In fairness white people have a history of doing this sort of thing as well as rigging things to make it hard on black people. It's a good thing his wife has all that money to bail him out cause he's probably going to get his butt kicked a lot for this.

Who the hell cares if a white guys dresses up as a black guy, or a black guy dresses up as a white guy or a person dresses as an Indian or if any body chooses to dress as another race or culture. It is not racisist. You people seriously need to look up the defination of racisit. When somebody is portraying racisism it is done with malice and hate. People need to stop this over sensitive race crap. The guy was just having fun, and Whit girls was hilarious, so was Robert Downey Jr in Tropic Thunder...not racisist...

seriously almost everyone in these comments sound like cry baby bitches. yes I get it history but for pete sake you guys are dragging any racial thing beyond. Get over everyone's race already. if you haven't noticed more people care if you are an asshole not black,white or tan. When you bring up racial shit like this i'm assuming you will forever whine about race thus another useless sheep following the racial mass of bullshit.

This is a joke, has anyone ever watched stand-up comedy? If you seriously think that Nick Cannon is trying to insult the white race, your horribly mistaken. Comedy has no bounds thats why it's funny. Everyone needs to calm down and appreciate the humor.

The Wayan Brothers (and many other men like Tyler Perry), dress up like women and then do ridiculous, stupid things in order to mock women and put them down. How is that okay? Women never do this to men, but guys make WHOLE MOVIES in which they dress as women to make fun of them. It's no different than blackface. No different!

I don't see how anyone can think it's fine for a man to dress up as an over the top woman and portray every stereotype of women out there. It's nothing but sexist, misogynistic garbage and people (women AND men) need to speak up about it. it's NOT OKAY.

This is so ridiculous, im sorry but i HATE this double standard bullshit. It would be national news if say, Eminem dressed up in blackface and called his new song Black People Party music, just like the article stated. Not only that his career would be RUINED, and all sorts of african american civil rights groups would TEAR HIM APART. And that's okay, if you're going to be racist, you deserve to be torn apart. But here comes the double standard. Nick Cannon dressing up in whiteface - this story will make it about as far as celebrity gossip websites (its not even on TMZ though!), and it will have absolutley no impact on Cannon's career. Although, to be fair, his career is already pretty much nonexistent. Either way - a black man dressing up in whiteface, or a white man dressing up in blackface - is a very, very RACIST thing to do. I feel like many people ignore the racism from black people towards white people. That type of racism is very much alive, I have even experienced it many times, living in Philadelphia. Also a "Black Miss America" pageant and things like "Black Girl Magazine" also exist, which is totally fine I dont have a problem with any of that. I do have a problem though, with the fact that - could you IMAGINE the backlash that would come from someone creating a "White Miss America" pageant? That pageant would probably not even be allowed. And im sure that my comment will even get backlash, I'll probably be called a racist or something ridiculous like that. For the record, I am not at all racist, I respect all cultures and races and sexual orientations, I accept everyone for who they are. I dont understand why others can't do the same. I am only commenting about something that many people tend to ignore - the fact that racism goes both ways. It is 2014...race shouldn't even be something that we talk about like this, racism should be nonexistent by now. Every race should of course be proud of and celebrate their culture, but each race should be able to do so EQUALLY.

Lets see how fast the folks over at America Got Talent gives him the boot, because lord knows they don't want to take sides with anyone who makes such blatent racial comments. Do we all recall Paula Dean ? Don Imus? How many countless white entertainers that made a remark or racist comment only to be shunned by sponsors? I'd like to see the same happen to Mr. Cannon. Instead, I say we all NOT buy his wife's music (as if she's that popular anymore?) and lets all shut our TV's when AGT is on.... double standards folks... double standards.

All you people with your panties in a twist need to calm the eff down because after you all get up from behind your computer screens you're gonna go on with your day and enjoy the benefits of white privilege at the expense of others. Nick Cannon's whiteface stunt in no way affects you or your life so pipe down, white folks. I swear, white people claiming reverse discrimination has got to be the most off putting thing, you all know nothing about discrimination.
