: LL Cool J just created a new "COUNTRY MUSIC" song called ACCIDENTAL RACIST. The song, which is written by Brad Paisley, tries to put a large portion of the blame for White Southern racism on Black people. We're not sure WHAT THE F*CK LL is doing on a song like this.
Here are some of the lyrics, where Brad talks about White Southerners "WALKING ON EGGSHELLS" about the South's racist history, and how White folks are suffering from "Southern Blame" inflicted on them by Black people:
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
Typical RACIST ISH rght. Well check out LL COOL J Co-signing that mess!!
"If you don't judge my dude rag, then I won't judge your red [Confederate] flag"
"If you don't judge my gold chain, then I'll forget the iron chains."
"Let bygones be bygones. RIP Robert E Lee [The brutal Southern general who went to war to keep Blacks as slaves]."
LL needs to really go sit down somewhere with this mess. . .
His ass is a Black fucking Republican straight up coonin' for his so called friends. And like, I used to admire his ass but naw homie I miss the old LL not this crazy ass fool rappin' sick lyrics while our sons and daughters are going through racist storms in this world...and he got the audacity to let this mess leave his lips.
You guys are idiots. He's only saying, that racism mainly exist now because of black people. Which is us! I am a southerner, North Carolina raised.. I like my camo hat.. I like my pulled pork bbq.. i have a lot of rednecks as friends. Stop the racism and come together. He's saying, I won't judge you if you don't judge me and we can all live in harmony. Black people are now enslaving ourselves, which is true. There are still a lot of racist whites but they're not all like that. We need to learn how to get along. We can forgive but never forget the Civil War.. but that was their ancestors , not them.. times have changed. And Brad Paisley is one of the best damn country singer alive, and he is definitely not racists. Country music isn't only for southern white people, there are black ones as well.. such as Darius Rucker.
When will blacks wake up? They have us calling each other the N word, wearing shirts that say the N word, doing every thing to get to the white woman when so many black men were killed because of the white woman (rosewood, emit till and more), bleaching our skin, and now accepting the confederate flag. We blacks are done for. they made us racial and now mixed up our gene pool with theses biracial kids who know nothing about black power or leadership.
I grew up in the south too. and your an idiot just like L,L blacks always want to be accepted by white people especially black males. I hate that you guys are so weak. While i grew up in N.C, i went to a predominately white college and I remember an Asian women saying that its hard for her to respect blacks because we were known as slaves. Go visit some of the white blogs and see who are the most racist.... its only been 46 years since segregation , have you ever wondered why blacks can't leave there children a legacy ? Not because we don't want too, because we were stopped from progressing because of racist laws in this country. for instance many of us were not able to by land or get loans to start business because white people made it a law... So you my friend STFU. your good with the scraps you get. because some hillbilly white chick likes you. uggg.... I hate black coon males.
Sorry but White people can NEVER understand the plight of a Black person.
They can SYMPATHIZE but never truly understand the pain.
They don't HAVE constant reminders like a grand parent who use to scrub floors for rich white people and take care of their kids barely making pennies.
They don't have a history where others look at you as pure sh*t.
They never been counted 3/5th's a man.
BLACK FOLKS ARE SOME OF THE MOST SENSITIVE PEOPLE IN THE WORLD. THESE 2 COME TO MAKE A SONG ABOUT RACIAL TOLERANCE AND ALL YA'LL HEAR IS LL IS "UNCLE TOMMING". GROW UP AND GET SOME SENSE. L8R H8RS. AIRUN
He is not praising anybody. He is clearly saying, if you can READ, don't judge me for the things I do and chose to wear and I won't judge you for (meaning white people) for the past things they've done to us as black people. DUH.
Civil Rights Era?
You must be out of your damn mind. That's a part of my grand-parents painful past.
You think I'm going to FORGET how hard my grandmother had to work being a damn maid to wealthy white folks?
She couldn't even eat off the same china and silverware as a white person back then.
I grew up in Virginia. This state alone is a constant reminder of racism.
I came into this world standing on the shoulders of my ancestors and grand parents.
Through story telling my grandmother would tell me of the hardships she and my grandfather had to endure because of the color of their skin.
People need to stop living in the past and looking towards the future or you are guilty for holding your own self back. None of you were ever a slave and none of the white people alive now owned slaves. Are there still racism today? Most definitely. That goes for ALL races. I'm pretty sure a slave from back in the day would be pretty pissed at people wasting opportunities that they never got all because they want to continue to live in the past and be mad about something that didnt even happen to them. Slavery was wrong...but its over. Racism will never be over for as long as you live in the past. Do you see Jewish people walking around harboring all of this anger and not allowing themselves to move forward? No. Im sure the majority of the people of this site didnt even listen to the song...you just read what was stated. You are missing the message of the song.
He's saying if you can forget all your preconceived views on blacks folks he will forget the past. A lot of white folks see us as savages just out here killing and stealing. And don't act like some of us don't give them reason to believe that. Too many of us don't seem to know that most white people ONLY contact with black people is through media. And be honest if you came from another planet and only had the radio, tv, internet and print media to judge black people on, what would you think?
My responses are pertaining to these ignorant fools commenting at this time.
I'm not even referring to the song. I'm over that.
Y'all are lost.
I never a bunch of naive people in my life.
I guess y'all just going to skate through life like every thing is A.OK.
Wow, really? Who raised ya'll?
The past was put in place for us to remember and without it we wouldn't have gotten this far.
If you don't tell these beautiful black babies about their past then they'll go through life facing injustices and not knowing why.
I thank God for my grand-parents, my parents, my aunts, uncles - all those before me to tell me about trials and tribulations they had to face DAiLY because of the color of their skin.
"racism still alive -they just be concealing it".
You have be deaf, blind and dumb to think racism has been completely eradicated.
I need for you to go talk to your elders.
You know this post must have gotten to me for me to type several comments....chile you just don't know! Smh
(fans self with church fan and rocks back and forth) mmmm mmm mmm
@silky.. the lyrics are not the issue. The issue is that the singer he collaborated with supports the confederated flag which speaks volumes about the legacy of how white's feel and treated blacks then and now. i don't get the people that say forget about racism who are you ? I 'm a educated professional and i still get hit with racism. I moved to New York, because i thought it would be better but, its just Defacto here. To me, its has gotten worst because now, black males are jumping on the bad wagon allowing it.
A site that bamboozles blacks on the daily but want to make a big deal of this song... FOH! I am 40 years old and most of the "chil'ren" on here probably got sucked into the headline before thinking it through. There is a book I got in Savannah, GA called "My Folks Dont Want Me To Talk About Slavery". To read the slave narratives, most of your heads would EXPLODE when you see how many blacks actually STAYED with their "white families" (yes, masters) after the war. They had no clue what to do with freedom, no money, no food, no clothes. So they helped rebuild the home they knew and the south they knew. Yes, they got their own land, as they were slaves, but the very HATE that plenty died for is the same hate that established the black southern family today. A site that tells you ass is relevant to your being, that being dark is the bane of your very breathing, that IF you're going to sip Sizzurp at least make sure it's poison free (How about NOT do drugs?) What's really racist and holding you down? It sure as hell is not this song and its not even LL's! It's Brad Paisley's, LL just does his appearance. Get off this site and go read ROOTS. Even on those pages blacks and whites (Irish) had to work together in the south. If you think every southern white owned a plantation and slaves, you're as ridiculous as they come. In this world everyone is someone elses N/I/G/G/E/R: The Irish to the English, The Jew to the Arab, The Chinese to the Japanese, The Black to the Black.... <- sick as it is :(
@Vanessa177 if you find out your grandmother that raised you and loved you was a serial killer do you just say f her? No she did wrong but she still made you the person you are so you love her for that. Brad Paisley is just saying he is conflicted...he knows the south was wrong but he was raised in the south and it made him who he is.
Smh just another shady mission to have mind control over you know nothing idiots...think about your people first. He's telling black people to forget the past but not saying anything about how whites view blacks smdh! A shame.
That's not whatbhes saying mto they're talking about how we blame this generation of white ppl for what their ancestors did hence "our generation didn't start this nation" LL is basically saying grow up, don't judge me and I won't judge you....not saying forget about slavery, think ppl..
Lastly, considering I was around to witness the rise of Hip Hop before my very eyes, when LL came out he was 17 years old, rocking a boom box, and rapping his ass off for Russell and Rick Rubin. For all you saying he sold out, HE IS A GROWN ASS MAN who's seen more, learned more, traveled the world and embraced knowledge through the connects he's made in his lengthy career. If more of US removed ourselves from the everyday of our hoods and got to know other nationalities and garnered respect for them and their cultures, your mind frame would change also. I've seen the KKK walk the streets of a suburban area outside of Philly when I was about 15. I was hurt and angry but no one at my mostly black school went to cause trouble. Back then, we had different approaches to hate. First off, keep your friends close but your enemy closer is very true. If you think every white is evil, your sadly mistaken. If you think your hate is justified, God be with you. I've seen the most racists change their mind once they removed themselves from their "situation" of hate (it is taught. You aren't born hating others). I've also seen blacks attack each other with a savagery found in the wild. Acts that were on some straight Willie Lynch ish :( The TRUE hate we should complain and fight against is the hate some of us have for ourselves. Now the day this site gets its head out its ass and make headlines about THAT... Oh but no, so long as light is right and some bitch is back bussin' it open at the club.... EXACTLY! :(
stop looking back at the past.. It's good to know what happend but stop hating on people with another skincolor.. my family except for my grandma was put on trains in WO 2 en murderd in gaschambers.. but I don't hate the germans and I live in the netherlands.. look for the future and be glad youre free..
It's sad really. Someone tries to create amends and all you hear is coonery? You are not the only people to have been slaves. You are not the only people robbed from their lands. Of course you should never forget your history but you shouldn't be ruled by it neither. Make a change instead of living in self-pity. There isn't a black slave in America today. The president is black and most sport stars are black... Some of the biggest stars are black (will smith) yet you continue to act as if none of you can make it. Enough is enough... Make it happen!
I feel what LL was trying to do here. He was trying to mend fences between southern whites and blacks, BUT THIS WAS A PIZZ POOR WAY OF GOING ABOUT IT AND THIS WILL HURT HIM IN THE LONG RUN !
The road to hell is paved with good intentions.
All I want is for all you ignant muphukkas shyttin on him, at least give him credit for what he was trying to do
HE SHOULD HAVE SEEN THIS COMING !
Definitive proof that rap has become a white-controlled plague deliberately unleashed on the black community. And LL has proven to be just another wealthy coon who never bothered to buy himself a REAL education. Stay away from politics LL... Or it will COST you.
MTO continues to play you dummies like drum. Brad Parsley is considered to be a liberal. He has played at the White House and has said how proud he was of this country for electing a black man as President. As for LL he is trying to do something positive however corny.
There's an AGENDA...
The Agenda is to WEAKEN, DUMB DOWN, and STOP the MENTAL GROWTH Of All AFRICANS, AFRICAN AMERICAN, BLACKS, NEGROS, and People with Melanin.
The Agenda is to use h o mo s e x u a l i t y,Certain Rappers, Artist, and other Brainwashed celebs to help with the agenda.
"They" don't want ANOTHER NAT TURNER up rising...
So "They" Sedate Black People with B u l I s h i t
I try not to be mean online because I think it's petty, but every single person that has made a comment that amounts to "black people are overreacting" or "we should forget about our past" is an absolute, ABSOLUTE idiot. African Americans as a people are so lost right now PRECISELY because an overwhelming majority don't know their own history. When I say history, I mean the events that transpired during/after slavery as well as what we have done throughout history, way before the slave trade. People who do not know history are doomed to repeat it. Why is it that most other nationalities have cultural heritage info that stretches back for hundreds or thousands of years but black people don't know shyt about black people before the slave trade? It's because the real people in power want to keep the average black person as stupid as possible, and some of you are making their job really easy. If, as a black person, this ridiculous song didn't strike you as obvious 'house neggro'ing, then you should slap yourself out of ignorant embarrassment. If, as a black person, you think racism/white supremacy doesn't exist anymore in this world, then you should slap yourself out of ignorant embarrassment
Miss Super Negra I am glad that I can always depend on you to get some of these ignorant MTOers straight. People should never forget their past because the past is what makes us who we are today. It makes us understand who we are. A white person would never forget their past and are always proud to tell you what European country of origin that their great great grandparents emigrated from. Therefore, why would anyone want us to forget ours. My grandmother like Miss Super Negra's was also a maid for white people and it was very painful to me that when my mom use to take her to the bank, I, a five year old kid at the time, had to help her to sign an X on the back of her SS check. She couldn't even write the letter X. So when people say that nothing was taken from us, I always like to tell them that story. Besides our pride and dignity we were also robbed of the opportunity to progress and to build wealth like the Trumps, Rockefellers, Browns, and other wealthy white families. Our past explains why blacks are so socially and economically behind today. And while someone on here had the nerve to mention the Jews. The Jews will never allow you to forget the Holocaust. However, they can still have some since of pride because the Holocaust was acknowledged as a wrong and the Jews were financially compensated. Bill Clinton was the first United States President to acknowledge slavery as being wrong. However, we still were never compensated for everything that was taken away from us such as education, the ability to obtain loans to build wealth, even businesses (Black Wall Street that were bombed in Oklahoma). So to those of you who say forget the past, the past is what made me who I am today because I have refused to allows someone to tell me that I am inferior. I am now a lawyer thanks to my Grandmother cleaning for white people and vowing that my mother would never do the same. She sent my mom to college by selling her life insurance policy. My mom received her masters and didn't owe one cent in student loans. My mom has had a successful career as an educator for 41 years. She bought me my first home when I was only 26 and thanks to her, I do not have a mortgage and I own my home. This is all in thanks to my grandmother struggling and making sure that my mother doesn't. I too will do the same for my daughter. I am now attempting to build a legacy for her that white people have been able to build for their kids for the past hundreds of years due to unequal playing fields.
Also, everyone please read the book The Debt written by Harvard graduate Randall Robinson. It puts everything in perspective. He is a highly intelligent man whose TransAfrica company fought to end apartheid in South Africa. Even if you don't read it, at least Google it to read what it is about. He talks about why America still has the embargo on Cuba (because the majority of Cubans in Cuba today are Afro-Cuban). He also talks about how Bill Clinton fooled blacks (by playing the saxophone) to get the black vote but did nothing while in office but instituted policies that harshly affected blacks. It is a great book. I read it while in college.
Humm, so you're telling me Lady Love is kissing up to Mr. Charlie? No shock factor here! Hollywood for ya! Having too much money can f*uch your brain up. Black folks start thinking they're accepted by white*y and white folks start thinking they can use the term N*!ggA freely around N*iggAs.
If this story is true then: F*uck you Lady Love (LL)! I never liked Salty Kr*ACKERS anyway.

Luckily im from the island...so blah
Dumb bish how'd your POOR azz get to the islands?
Typical dumb island b i t c h!!!
Hey black people your stupid if your gonna let the white man tell u who you are. That your inferior to them, or their better cause there light. Blacks you come from kings Queens why y'all dont just get like the Jews n love urself eacthother and stick with your own race! I think blacks need 2 move on from slavery. Because everybody black has not been in slavery or have ancestors who were slaves! Know ur history if blackwould forget about white society and culture and do ur own thing this wouldn't be a problem. Blacks need 2 be more like my people, the Native American they killed alot of us 2 but we stay 2 our selves we dont mix with other races rarely do we do that! But I love black girlz theyr top notch the most beautiful and im a lezzy I dress like a dude butbim wavy wit I want a bad b!!tch
I think the majority of black people are racist too. I'm a white guy and had nothing to do with "history". As a matter of fact, neither did any of you. It was terrible, but it's over. African Americans have more rights than I do. African American College Fund? What if there was a white American college fund. All hell would break loose! Black History Month, there's no white history month. Pleez! THAT IS RACISM as well. Can't we all just get along? None of us were involved and should just get over it. If you want something out of life...earn it. No one is owed anything.
Well, another Negro heard from. You want us us forget what they did to us? Let's be like the Jewish race (they will never forget the Holocost). I'm sick of white folks and Negros telling me to forget about it. We are still dealing with the lasting effects
"If you don't judge my gold chains.... I'll forget the iron chains... The past is the past, you feel me... Let bygones be bygones... RIP Robert E. Lee but I've gotta thank Abraham Lincoln for freeing me."
ACCIDENTAL RACIST is accidently racist.
LL is, truly, an ignorant buffoon who does not know American history. The southern Confederacy was a genocidal regime similar in spirit to Nazi Germany. The Confederate flag is their swastika. It has nothing to do with southern heritage. If you want southern heritage, get some grits! Leave that symbol of hatred and evil where it went--down history's toilet. I can't believe that we would be so naive as to forgive and forget. At the conclusion of the holocaust, the Jews of Europe shouted "never forget!" Neither should we forget. And don't let anyone revise the history that we know to be true. Some fools will do anything to sell a record and try to be relevant again.
"Luckily im from the island...so blah"
WOW! The ignorance level is really high here.
The slave ships went directly from West Africa to the islands in North America FIRST. The "LUCKY" Africans got sold to the United States and shipped to Florida, Mississippi, etc.
So, blah, GENIUS. Read a book and stop posting ignorance.
LL you done f*cked up you stupid baboon! How dare you rap on some dumbazz country song about,
"Let bygones be bygones" EXCUSE me but slavery and the continued racism in this country will NEVER be
BYGONE. As long as racism still exists, it's our duty to shine a light on it and fight it every step of the way you dumb FOOL!!
I expect this sh^t from that country redneck clown, but your COON ASS has pizzed me the h*ll off!
who said God forgot what the devil did? Some black folks are so to quick to defend a cause that they aint no part of. You let the slap on the cheek go, not the murder of millions. Ole soft trained a.s.s.
Yet y'all like to hear jayz talk about selling crack to his mama, or rick ross putting stuff in your drinks, don't mind chris brown beating a woman cause you dumb ratchets think he's fine. Yet none of these rappers that's popular that people like talk about anything positive. But you're mad at this.
LL's rap career is officially over now. Dead. No credibility left. I recent years, I've thought it weird that, despite his constructed muscles, he has removed all his facial and body hair. That was a deliberate act to try to look 22 again. There is something wrong with this man. I really think he's gone off the deep end, praising the overseers. I believe he would agree to become a slave, just to be famous a little while longer. Brotha, you are dismissed. And Paisely is pure white trash. No redeeming quality there at all. That country bumpkin looks dirty as hell.
Y'all muthafuckas can't read! He said if u wont talk shit about us we wont talk shit about you. He didn't say forget what happened to are people. Damn y'all the fucking coons. Like the episode of boondocks when Riley throws a chair.
Bigdeal500, I am neither stupid or a moron. I was merely pointing out that in order to atone for racism of the past, our society has chosen to perpetuate racism the other direction. You may call it affirmative action, but let's call it what it is. A white applicant with a PhD can be overlooked for a job because the company needs a black or Hispanic female with a bachelor degree to meet the demands of affirmative action. So they fail to choose the more qualified applicant, instead they choose someone with less education. A local business had hiring practices of a certain standard, but only a certain number of minorities. To increase the minority representation, they lowered the standards so more could be hired. This had happened all across America. We have LOWERED the standards because of this crap. I propose rather than doing this, we RAISE the standard and find ways of getting minorities the education to fill the jobs. I don't believe that this happens through Ethnic college funds, but by encouraging all races to earn their success through hard work, not handouts. The past was horrific, but it was the past. Move on and stop expecting everyone to give you everything. No one gave it to me. I didn't earn anything based on my race, I earned it through hard work and by using my mind. We have no choice what race we belong to, but we can choose whether or not to use it as an excuse.
So henved, you are suggesting that white Americans have never benefited from social welfare initiatives designed to help them reach goals they could not reach strictly on their own. What about the taxpayer funded loan guarantees and low down payment loans that have build many predominately white suburbs and condo blocks? What about the corporate welfare and bailouts that have kept white investment bankers high and dry, even as they bankrupted their own companies through incompetence and recklessness? What about the farm subsidies that have propped up rural white America? Whites are some of the biggest welfare recipients and free riders , so don't talk to me about lowered standards.
Ignorant.. don't downplay slavery.. although young black ppl use slavery as a crutch, an excuse to a fault knowin damn well they dont have a clue about it or werent affected by it today..LL really wants to b in the spotlight smh
@henved You truly aren't as smart as you think you are...you should go learn about the American Reconstruction era. You know, the one time in American history where blacks were actually given a chance to flourish financially. You know what happened? Black people flourished financially, moreso than whites in a lot of areas. What happened after this? Jim Crow laws. The Tulsa bombing. Labor Unions created solely to make sure pale people had jobs while leaving blacks out in the cold. The one time that blacks had a fair shot at the American dream, and we were punished for doing TOO well in this country. The fact of the matter is that white people have a LONG history of stealing from black culture(no, it did not start with music, although that has been the current form of thievery for the past century). Not only that, this country was LITERALLY built on the backs of black slaves. America would not be what it is today if not for the economic boost that free slave labor created. Blacks were becoming conscious to all of this in the 1960s/1970s but the combination of PEACEFUL figurehead assassinations, 2nd wave feminism causing the removal of the black father from the family household, as well as the legitimacy of the homosexual agenda('civil rights' now means gay right moreso than black rights) has resulted in the destruction of ALL significant black movements that could have affected any real change. I should send you a bill for having to teach you so much.
