LL Cool J and Brad Paisley Release ‘Accidental Racist’ Song [#BIGDUMMYFILES]

Twitter

Whoever thought this was a good idea belongs in the BIG DUMMY FILES along with Brad Paisley and LL Cool J.

If you aren’t familiar with Brad Paisley he is a popular country musician. If your aren’t familiar with LL Cool J, he used to be a popular rapper 20-plus years ago, but he is really irrelevant in hip-hop right now.

These two decided to team up and release a song about race relations in this country. The only problem is, the song is about racism being a accident. I was not aware that you could be an accidental racist, but apparently these two think you can.

I’m just a white man comin’ to you from the southland
Tryin’ to understand what it’s like not to be
I’m proud of where I’m from but not everything we’ve done
And it ain’t like you and me can re-write history
Our generation didn’t start this nation
We’re still pickin’ up the pieces, walkin’ on eggshells, fightin’ over yesterday
And caught between southern pride and southern blame

Then they go on to talk more about the reconstruction period, both must not have been paying attention in history class. These lyrics make no sense.

They called it Reconstruction, fixed the buildings, dried some tears

We’re still siftin’ through the rubble after a hundred-fifty years”)

So when I see that white cowboy hat, I’m thinkin’ it’s not all good

I guess we’re both guilty of judgin’ the cover not the book.

Let’s keep it all the way real: Most people who wear a rebel flag t-shirt or any other garment that represents the Confederacy believe that they were right in becoming traitors and leaving the Union because they wanted to keep African slaves in captivity. There is no way that LL Cool J should be making the excuse that people who notice this are the real racist.

LL Cool J continues to show how out of touch he is with the real world on his next line:

“If you don’t judge my do-rag

I won’t judge your red flag

If you don’t judge my gold chains

I’ll forget the iron chains … Let bygones be bygones.

Huh? What does wearing a gold chain have to do with forcing someone into slavery? To top it off, LL Cool J uses the non-existent word CONVERSATE.

This was a good-hearted attempt to help race relations in this country, but saying you’re ignorant by accident is just plain stupid. They should have left this song in the studio or titled it the “Accidental Racist BIG DUMMY Song.”
