Common: A Black Pope Would Be A Beautiful Thing

After Pope Benedict XVI revealed that he would be retiring from the church because he's too old to carry out his duties, it's been speculated that Cardinal Peter Turkson, an African American priest from Ghana, may be the next in line. TMZ recently caught up to Common and asked his thoughts about the possibility of a first black pope.

Common replied that electing a black pope would be a "beautiful thing," adding "I think the world is getting more open to not judging people by color. We're all equal."
