Country music has gone the way of the jigger.
ust hours after Brad Paisley and LL Cool Js new song Accidental Racist hit the web on Monday, it was greeted by a barrage of backlash.
The song opens with the county coroner walking into a Starbucks donning a confederate flag t-shirt, hoping others understand that he only did it because hes a Skynyrd fan.
Im proud of where Ive come from, but not everything weve done. It aint like you and me can re-write history, Paisley sings.Our generation didnt start this nation, and were still picking up the pieces, walking on eggshells, fighting over yesterday. Caught between southern pride and southern blame Cause Im a white man, living in the South land.
Rapper LL Cool J then chimes in, which comes across as something of a public apology or conversation on racism within America.
Dear Mr. White Man, I wish you understood what the world is really like when youre living in the hood. Just because my pants are sagging doesnt mean Im up to no good. You should try to get to know me; I really wish you would If you dont judge my do-rag, I wont judge your red flag.
Other lyrics include Paisleys singing I try to put myself in your shoes and thats a good place to begin, while the rapper adds lines like Now my chains are gold but Im still misunderstood,I want you to get paid but be a slave I never could, and Id love to buy you a beer, conversate and clear the air but I see that red flag and I think you wish I wasnt here.

You know the Knee-grow was thinking "I wantz to put a cap in diz cracka". LL Cool J should be singing about the freeloading welfare queens and baby daddy's that don't do shit for this county except fill up our prisons.

I like the lyrics, and LL Cool J is a good family man with no scandals, as is Paisley. People have to get over themselves and worry about the real problems in this country.
