This is an open letter to Brad Paisley and LL Cool J:
Gentlemen– I Thank you. Thank you for the wake up song “Accidental Racist” You have started a conversation in America. Good for You both.
However there seems to be a problem. It seems that most of the clowns who have access to a computer and the internet who are talking about your new song did not get the point, – or they don’t want to talk about it, but they feel they have to talk about it, so they hi-jack the subject and take it to other topics that fit their agenda what a pity.
We need to get past the past. as you say none of us were in that time. so Let us all move on past the tired old noise and conversate productively. (Brads explanation)
If a married couple has a big long lasting argument about something, they will never move on with the marriage if they just dwell on the past. This same fact affects a people, or 2 Peoples, ( races), and all nations, and the whole political arena as well.
IT is time to stop pointing fingers, screaming, name calling, and ‘Positioning’ “My cause”!
IT is time to work together, talk to each other, listen to each other, accept each other differences, and lets just all try to get along, and probably make some great new friends in the process.
Brad and James, I hope that someone one in your organizations or a close friend to one or the other of you sees this blog and brings it to your attention. I am betting that a lot of people quietly approve of this song, and are glad you recorded it and will do something to make their world better around them.
Oh, and to all those journalist that think this was a bad idea? You are wrong! This was a great idea!
I broke my policy on this blog to not talk about politics,- well not really because this is a Human Issue – Political arenas just hi-jack it for their personal causes.
