Not Accidental Racism...Just Plain 'Ol Racism

You have to be kidding me!? Did LL Cool J and Brad Paisley really go there? Did you put your really write and support 'Accidental Racist?'

First, let's start by acknowledging the intention behind the song. You have to give the artists credit for trying to unite people with music. However, this song leaves more questions than it does answers. Below are just a few of the questions.

"To the man that waited on me at the Starbucks down on Main, I hope you understand When I put on that t-shirt, the only thing I meant to say is I’m a Skynyrd fan"
Really?! Do you know how many Lynyrd Skynyrd shirts don't have the confederate flag on them? Tons. Deeper question: Do you know what the confederate flag means to people of color?

"The red flag on my chest somehow is like the elephant in the corner of the south"
That's just it. For you it's the elephant in the corner of the south. When people of color see that flag, the elephant is not in the corner. It's taking up the entire room. Do you know or understand the feelings of terror that are invoked when people of color see that flag? They don't know that you're just a "proud southerner." 

"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"
You are correct! We can't write history differently and we shouldn't try. Just like you shouldn't have tried to send the message that you are empathic to people who were victims of the southern regime by writing this ridiculous excuse of a song.

"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"
Isn't it funny how you managed to turn something like slavery into a situation where you are the victim "caught" between the home that you love and the behavior of its people? Weren't Africans the victims here?

"We’re still siftin’ through the rubble after a hundred-fifty years"
And when you say "we..." Exactly who is "we?"

"Dear Mr. White Man, I wish you understood. What the world is really like when you’re livin’ in the hood"
Interesting that Mr. Cool J started his lyrics so respectfully; just like a Negro should. Where exactly did Mr. Paisley give you the respect of referring to you as "Mr." or "man?"

"If you don’t judge my gold chains; I’ll forget the iron chains"
Oh, uninformed Cool James, don't you know that it is so easy for you to forget the iron chains because you weren't actually in them? How could you suggest that you will forget what your people gave up so that you could even write this song with Brad, a white southerner who enjoys sporting the confederate flag as a sign of his southern pride?

"The past is the past, you feel me"
Sorry, not feeling you. If the past is the past, then what's the need for the confederate flag?

"Let bygones be bygones"
Are you daring to refer to 400 years of enslavement as a "bygone?"

"RIP Robert E. Lee but I’ve gotta thank Abraham Lincoln for freeing me, know what I mean"
Rest in peace Robert E. Lee? Huh? Next...thank you to Abraham Lincoln, the president who freed 3.1 million slaves with an executive order on January 1, 1863? Did your history books explain to you that there were 4 million slaves at the time of the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation, which means that 900,000 slaves were still enslaved at that point in history?

By the way, what is an accidental racist? Is it someone who is lacking so much insight that he doesn't know when he has offended someone, let alone a whole group of people, by his words or actions? Isn't that called ignorance?

Last question...which one of you is the accidental racist? When someone writes a song about his pride in the confederate flag and another person supports that pride, there's nothing accidental about that racism.

Psychology IEverywhere!

Just about all of what you assert happens to be astonishingly accurate and that makes me wonder the reason why I hadn't looked at this with this light previously. This particular piece truly did turn the light on for me personally as far as this specific topic goes. However there is actually just one position I am not really too comfortable with so whilst I make an effort to reconcile that with the actual core theme of the issue, let me see what all the rest of your visitors have to point out.Well done.
