Brad Paisley says he had a purpose in mind with his controversial new song "Accidental Racist."  The country star explains that with his LL Cool J collaboration, he's trying to draw attention to race relations in the U.S. 
And "Accidental Racist" has started people talking - about Paisley and the song.  The track is from Brad's new album, Wheelhouse, which arrived in stores Tuesday. 

The song has sparked a lot of activity on social media.  Many people have criticized the lyrics for seeming to trivialize the subject of racism.  A few celebrities have also chimed in on the track, suggesting it may have been meant as satire.
