Country singer Brad Paisley and rap artist LL Cool J., collaborate on a new song called, “Accidental Racist.” According to AP music writer Chris Talbott, “At its heart, “Accidental Racist” is about how cultural symbols favored by whites and blacks – the fashion choice of wearing Confederate flags or baggy pants, for instance – come loaded with meaning.” Paisley uses the confederate flag as a symbol in the music video, saying whites are caught between “Southern Pride and Southern Blame.” There has been mixed reaction from people across the nation.
