    Music: Accidental Racist
    #1

    Brad Paisley (whom I love) and LL Cool J (who doesn't love Cool James? Wink ) have made a song together. The message is very powerful in my opinion and I found the song very moving. At least here in America, it is certainly something we don't get very often for a hip-hop legend to team up with a leading country artist-- much less to make a song about race relations (and a controversial one at that).

    Now I'll admit, as much as I have always liked LL, he doesn't quite fit in this song-- most of his lines feel badly timed, on top of his vernacular sounding skewed when layered over Paisley's crooning, southern voice. But, I still feel that this song may do some good in clearing up the issues that I myself have long fought to clarify.

    I patronize the Rebel/Confederate flag because I am southerner and get sick of people taking it that I am racist because of that.

    Good on you, Brad and James Yay

    I thought he fit in the song just fine... It sounded a lot better than I thought it would, rapping over country tracks can't be easy... The message was perfect.

    The whole song was cool though! thanks for sharing. I give it 2 thumbs up, 4 out of 5 drive by shootings & 5 out of 6 burning crosses!!
    I usually don't listen to country, but country is cool stuff... it took me a long time to realize that...See, music is medicine for allHug

    That song reminds me of the 'Jane's Addiction', 'Ice-T' team up. Not quite the same message, but a similar subject, and a little bit controversial when it came out.

    I remember Cop Killer…and all of the controversy surrounding the song.

    For those who forget the song:
