Nick Cannon gave listeners a sample of White People Party Music during his appearance on Arsenio last night. The former Nickelodeon star performed his new single “Dance Floor” talked about his decision to whiteface to promote the project.

“That character came from stuff I use to do on Nickelodeon when I was 19,” said Cannon. He still doesn’t understand why people had a problem with him portraying the character of Connor Smallnut when the Waynes’ did something similar in Whites Chicks as well as Eddie Murphy in Coming to America.

“People who have a sense of humor embrace it. The people who have a problem with it almost need to revaluate themselves because there’s a huge difference between humor and hatred,” Cannon said.

In the future he plans to implement the Connor Smallnut character into other projects.—Chris M. Garner
