As if he needed to further prove himself as an American treasure, Stephen Colbert has made on parody of "Accidental Racist."
On Wednesday's The Colbert Report, Colbert mocked the Brad Paisley-LL Cool J collaboration, which examines America's racial divide, by performing "Oopsie-Daisy Homophobe" with The Good Wife star Alan Cumming.

Donning a white cowboy hat, Colbert crooned in a country singing voice, "To the man stretching next to me at the Crunch Gym down on Main, I hope you understand ... I'm just a straight man. I'm not trying to be rude when I see you kissing dudes."
Meanwhile, Cumming, dressed in a jean jacket, came out rapping: "Hey Mr. Straight Man, I wish you understood what it's like to live in the world when you look this good. It don't make me a freak that I brunch nine times a week. I'd love to buy you a mojito — gossip, clear the air. But I see your show each night, and I think you wish I wasn't clear."
