A white California high school abecedary showed up for classes in blackface last week as part of his Halloween costume. Social media footage of the teacher’s costume, and what appears to be an ad-lib achievement of him rapping about bogus intelligence and technology, has since gone viral and the abecedary has reportedly been suspended. Ironically, he was dressed up as rapper Common Sense.

Twitter user @karrington_kk uploaded the above video on Friday with the explanation “Sooooooooo… one of our WHITE agents at mhs bygone absitively to paint his face so look like common the rapper yesterday.”

The anonymous abecedary has since been suspended. According to a CNN report, the school commune where he works issued a account saying:

In a school association where we acceptable learners and families from over 50 languages who represent cultures and religions throughout the world, and where our abiding neighborhood, Sunnyhills, was accustomed as the first city in the nation for planned integration, it hurts to know that this type of cultural aloofness and lack of cultural acquaintance still hovers in the background.

It’s cryptic at this time if the commune intends to take added action.

The issue of blackface, abnormally around Halloween, isn’t a new one. The action to blackface, due to its racist nature, aspersing origins, and dehumanizing overtones, is well-documented. Hardly a day goes by where a politician, teacher, or celebrity doesn’t get caught up in a cyclone of agitation over some years-old image of them in blackface ending up on social media.


And here you have an drillmaster assuming up to work in 2019, cutting blackface like it’s the 1950s, rapping about the future:

Opportunities limitless, possibilities senseless, what will you do? Millions of people, not enough to eat, what will we do? With AI, Microsoft technology, the future is up to you, you can do it. With AI. The future will blow your mind.
