Can one song bring harmony to the races?  That appears to be the goal of country singer Brad Paisley's latest track, "Accidental Racist." In the duet, which features LL Cool J, Paisley croons "Cause I'm a white man livin' in the Southland/ Just like you I'm more than what you see" and later quips how the touchy subject of racism has folks "walking on eggshells." However, the track is leaving many to question if he's gone too far. — Britt Middleton
