Painfully Earnest, Painfully Deaf, or Just Painful

Oh, goodness.

LL Cool J?  Seriously?  To be fair, Brad Paisley is a master of satire.  But if this is satire, it's pretty edgy.

UPDATE:  1.  I meant deaf as in "tone deaf," not "def," because I'm not sure what the latter means.  2.  Apparently it is NOT satire...he actually thinks the song will start a discussion.  That may be right, actually.  3.  If you listen closely, you will hear LL Cool J rap the following line:  "If you don't judge the gold chains/I'll forget the iron chains."  Holy kanarski.

Uh, so any attempt but southern whites and blacks to reconcile gets a "seriously"?

it's not satire, or deaf, or painful. stop being a guilty white man. everyone is responsible for only who they are.

I'm missing a step in your logic, Gene-o! This is a terrible attempt at reconciliation. It does not follow that ANY attempt at reconciliation would get a "seriously?" Only other terrible ones.
