A couple weeks ago, Brad Paisley and LL Cool J released their collaboration, “Accidental Racist,” and the whole world cringed. Did the duo have good intentions? Of course. Did their oversimplified take on modern day race relations miss the mark in so many ways? Definitely. One person who was inspired by the song was Stephen Colbert, who decided to write his own politically charged tune “in the¬†hopes of bridging another deep cultural rift in America: the gay marriage divide.” Push play to check out his parody jam called “Oopsie-Daisy Homophobe,” with guest rapper Alan Cumming.

The South. It’s a beautiful but haunted kind of place, filled with the vestiges of the Civil War, slavery and romantic longing for a “different way of life.” You may ask, “What does this Jewish girl living in Brooklyn know about the South?” but I actually lived there as a kid, in Fort Worth, Texas. It is something of a different world down there. And later, when my parents moved us to Southern New Jersey, I experienced a different kind of south — because the tip of New Jersey is below the Mason-Dixon line, there is a contingent of people who live in New Jersey who consider themselves southerners. They have “southern pride.” Is this crazy? Perhaps.

But whether you’ve lived there or not, it’s clear that there are still some rather mighty problems when it comes to race and the South. I mean, there are still segregated proms in Georgia.

Enter Brad Paisley’s new track, “Accidental Racist,”¬†featuring LL Cool J. Keep reading »
