Common Speaks On Teacher Who Dressed As Him In Blackface

"MILPITAS, CA – Paparazzi recently caught up with Common to inquire about a Bay Area teacher who used blackface to imitate the legendary Chicago MC for Halloween.

Common told TMZ his first thought was, “What makes you think you can go up there and do that?”

A video of the offensive costume was posted on Twitter last Friday (November 1). The clip quickly went viral and was met with heavy criticism.

The Milpitas High School engineering teacher, a white man named David Carter, faced immediate backlash for the offensive blackface costume and was placed on administrative leave following the incident.

While speaking to paparazzi, Common explained the moment presents an opportunity to start looking at changes in education.

“I think we need to look at the teacher, the administration and the people that we have leading our children in classrooms and make sure they are fully equipped not just with academic things, but also have emotional intelligence and understanding,” he said. “Maybe that’s something that we start implementing in our schools.”

He added he would like to have a heart-to-heart with the educator to let him know how harmful his costume was.

“Blackface lacks understanding of what black and brown people go through,” he said. “I believe in forgiveness, understanding, and compassion to the point where I’m willing to sit and talk with the individual and also bring others who can dig deeper into the education of what blackface has come from.”

Carter, the engineering teacher, issued a formal apology during an interview with NBC Bay Area on Thursday (November 7).

Although Carter was remorseful, he still appeared to be defensive of the controversy. He called old school minstrel shows “high art,” comparing the vintage performances to opera before apologizing for his actions.

“I recognize my mistake,” he said to NBC Bay Area anchor Robert Handa. “I ask anybody who has been adversely affected by this, and that’s a lot of people, to give me another chance because my heart is in the right place.”

Carter is reportedly still on administrative leave pending an investigation by the Milpitas Unified School district."

fu*k him. He's an educator so in theory he should be quite intelligent. Obviously he wasn't ignorant about the history of blackface or how harmful his depiction would be so all in all he's just an a**hole. He should be fired but he'll probably just shed a few crocodile tears, be suspended a week or two and then go on with his life.

Common played the ultimate defense to protect his corporate and political partnerships.



I'm happy for Common today, I remember the Water for Chocolate & Rawkus days when he wasnt getting his due as an elite emcee. I just hate that he seems so compromised in exchange for his deserved success.

Man fu*k all that another chance sh*t, this lying a*s cracker told his students he was gonna do it before he did it and his black students told him not to wear blackface because it was extremely offensive. So that proves his heart wasn't in the right place it was in a racist place. Common must be really ill informed to actually wanna sit down with this bigot and talk to him, how about Common talk to the students that told their racist a*s teacher to not offend them by wearing blackface. I bet once this evil a*s racist gets fired he won't do that sh*t again. fu*k outta here with that bullsh*t.

Of you didn't know Common has been on that "love racism away" wave for close to the last decade????

But it's alright for snoop dog to paint himself up like a white man and mock and generalize white people.

Common is mix or super light skin, this teacher could have just wire some common sh*t, Drew a goutee and wore one of those hats and people would have understood...why was the blackface necessary to be common

“High art?” Stop dressing in blackface weirdos. It’s not a compliment; there’s no positivity to be gained. So why do it?

Snoop definitely hurting and putting out a horrible message by doing that.


You know the history of white face and how they use it in a negative light to imitate white ppl as uneducated low class citizens and all. They are still artifacts of white ppl over exaggerated with big red lips and literally the color white.

Oh wait no there isn’t...

Facts, a Common outfit, goatee, and maybe some freckles would've sold it well enough...

This guy was clearly looking for the attention...
