SORT BY Relevancy
On todays show, we will talk about one of the hottest topics in entertainment, the collaboration of Brad Paisley and LL Cool J's song "Accidental Racist."
The song includes lyrics by LL like, "If you don't judge my gold chains/I'll forget the iron chains"
Paisley says "I'm proud of where I'm from, but not everything we've done."
Tune in today or on the podcact to here what I think about this song.
I lived through the racially turbulent years of the 60's here in the U.S. My neighborhood in the Midwest was one of the first neighborhoods the NAACP chose to force integration. It was interesting, because the dividing line between white neighborhoods and black neighborhoods in our town was The White River ... what a symbolic name! The first black. person to live north of the White River moved in next door to me!! In a world where the majority of the people are now "colored people," let's look at racism from a different perspective. It's time for a post 12/21/12 look at things! A 21st Century view!
Brad Paisley's new song "Accidental Racist" has the Country music and Hip-Hop communities abuzz not only about the social implications of racism, but also its impact on both genres of music. Following his article this week in The Virginian-Pilot, music writer Rashod Ollison offered a critical analysis of the Paisley's collaboration with LL Cool J, which generated so many emails, phone calls and comments, we thought we'd extend the conversation.
Join Rashod and US 106.1 host Dave Parker as they discuss the anomaly of the Country musc genre addressing issue of race and more about the topic this afternoon.
