"The fact that there is so much controversy is proof that the conversation needed to be had... In clarifying my intent, in no way was I saying that slavery is OK, that would be heartless. We have to remember that those things that happened to us were absolutely terrible, but you can’t let your past hold your future hostage... If me and Brad has caused the world to have a conversation about this topic then I am happy and I stand by it 1,000 per cent." Ll Cool J is happy with the controversy surrounding his new Brad Paisley collaboration Accidental Racist.
