I heard a song earlier by L.L. Cool J, and Brad Paisley, the title of the song is "Accidental Racist"....

Then, I began hearing "debates" on the news, on radio stations, etc. Many are wanting the song banned, while others think it is brilliant. If you have heard the song, what do you think of it? Do you think it should be banned, or do you think that it is opening up a topic that has been "hidden" so to speak?

I thought it was pretty good. And talk about a lot of good things.

I am inclined to agree with you. I just don't see what all the fuss is about.......it isn't "slamming" either race. (In my opinion)

No, it's just saying they've both made mistakes. But now it's time to move on. :-)

The melody was mediocre, sounded like a hundred other feel good songs.

I haven't heard it yet (surprisingly (; ) but I did see a headline about Brad apologizing. I know Brad would never say anything offensive purposely. I just looked up the lyrics and it isn't meant to be racist or disrespectful. I don't think it should be banned.

I don't think it will be banned, but it has really become a great publicity stunt in my opinion.
