(Newser) – Nick Cannon chose an ... interesting tactic to promote his new album: He donned whiteface. He introduced the new alter-ego on Instagram thusly: "Connor Smallnuts the name bro. Somebody should sign this guy. He's good." Fittingly, the soon-to-be-released album he's promoting is titled White People Party Music. Now, as you might imagine, Cannon has received a lot of criticism for the whiteface—not surprising when you recall the countless times people dressed in blackface have stirred up trouble.

Have to agree with 35422......anyone who dons a white face is an improvement over their natural simian appearance. He just needs to be extra careful hanging with his monkey brothers or they will target him like other whites because they assume he will have more than a welfare card, switchblade, watermelon, fried chicken, crack and a banana in his pocket.....don't hate the player, hate the game.....educate yourselves and stop looking for continual handouts......crying about slavery and oppression......MAKE YOUR FUTURE don't whine about the look dumber and more uneducated with each passing day....look up to some REAL heroes.....not dumb ass rap stars or basketball players with 7 kids with 7 different women....have you no pride? have you no ambition? are you not tired of the world wide (trust me on this) MOCKERY that you are....stupid, lazy, shifty, shuffling "yes boss" idiots who - in 100 years..will still be sitting on your stoop drinking malt liquor from a brown bag.....WAY TO ADVANCE YOUR SPECIES.....Popeye's and KFC are SO grateful you maintain your meager stupid asses.....Great idea - ALL OF YOU move to Detroit and we can brick you in....then charge admission so everyone can see the partially evolved Apeman who can almost walk upright, has arms to his knees, lounges around and picks fleas off each other, can't speak intelligibly, and pees on the ground.....Way to Go God cant we force sterilize you dumb-ass apes......stop procreating as your gene pool could not get any sewer rats.......
