A teacher in California dressed up as the Chicago rap and now he's paying the consequences.

(AllHipHop News) A teacher in California has been suspended for dressing up as Common for Halloween.

The unidentified teacher, who worked for the Milpitas Unified School District, dressed up as the Chicago rapper and completed his costume, by wearing blackface.

The educator attempted to imitate the look the rap star sports in a series of well-known advertisements for Microsoft.

A student uploaded a video to Twitter, and the backlash started almost immediately.

High School principal Francis Rojas issued a statement claiming the teacher had adversely affected every student in the district.

"In a school community where we welcome learners and families from over 50 languages who represent cultures and religions throughout the world, and where our long-standing neighborhood, Sunnyhills, was established as the first city in the nation for planned integration, it hurts to know that this type of cultural insensitivity and lack of cultural awareness still hovers in the background," Rojas said in his statement.

According to reports, the unidentified teacher has been placed on administrative leave pending the results of an investigation.

Investigation? Investigate what? I know what I just saw. This is intentionally insensitive. As an "educator" he should be well aware of the times we are in. How can a student of color feel comfortable in his class now?

The crazy part was he starting taking with this fake ass jive talking idiot sounding stereotype of a Black man. Common is one of the most well spoken people out there. Don't matter what he do, that's how some will see him. Pathetic.
