NASHVILLE - Country crooner Brad Paisley was sitting at a Cackle Cackle Chicken Diner in Music City, when he overheard someone mention his latest song.
The diner patron told his lady friend that he felt that the new country-hip hop song "Accidental Racist" was in fact racist by its very nature.
He said that the song's artists Brad Paisley and LL Cool J had no business stirring up feelings that should have best been left unstirred.
Paisley turned around and asked the individual why he felt the song was racist.
The stunned patron replied that the song mentions racist names and terms such as the red flag (Confederate flag), iron chains, cornbread, do-rags, Rebel, skin, grits, basketball, rednecks, chicken wings, the Kentucky Derby, Daisy Duke short shorts, cotton balls, and Reba McEntire.
Brad shook his head and remarked that he had forgotten to mention that the song also includes the words iron chains, chain letters, and Alice in Chains.
The man and his date got up and said they had to be on their way as they were going to a movie theater to watch Django Unchained.
Meanwhile Brad has learned that the state of Mississippi has just voted to ban his and LL Cool J's song.
The word on the street is that three other Dixie states, Alabama, Louisiana, and South Carolina are also considering outlawing the song.
SIDENOTE: Charles "Fat Bro" Barkley told Barbara Walter's on The View that he likes the song. Whoopi Goldberg and Sherri Shepherd both stood up and began pounding the Human Volcano with their fists.
