Yesterday, Brad Paisley and LL Cool J solved racism caused a ruckus on the Internet with "Accidental Racist," a has-to-be-parody-but-isn't ballad about the dream of wearing a Confederate flag and not getting in trouble for it. Today, Brad Paisley is standing by his song. "I wouldn't change a thing. This is a record meant to be FAR from easy listening," he tweeted last night. Meanwhile, LL Cool J is still tweeting out inspirational Carl Jung quotes.
