I'd Kid Rock opened up the new sports arena in Detroit last night with a concert and there was controversy because the group the National Action Network. Which is an African American organization. Are criticized Kid Rock as being racist because he has displayed the confederate flag to show his and he also criticized former NFL player Colin Capp frantic. Now Kid Rock believes that part of the problem is that he has hinted that he may run for the senate seat in his home state of Michigan. He believes that's what's causing. The controversy. Here's part of Kid Rock last night when he opened up to show the Swiss him referring to himself as. President. Rock and and again he may run for the senate seat this was during the opening song last night. I can't run for senate. Has got some folks in disarray and and you can run for president told you. This site C. President came back from Washington. The desk in the Oval Office lacks. Stayed. You know I can think of worst people who would be a senators and our big kid rock and and even though you and I wouldn't have a chance to vote for him and in this area because he's from from Michigan. You know you and I are still intact and in our lives by every senator. Mean they're only 100 senators two from every state. And the senators get together and they vote on a lot of stuff that impacts all of us. So regardless of where somebody is a senator from or congress person and as as well. They can still have an impact on your life. Here's a Texas says kid rocks drummer is a black woman here is another Texas says so. Kid Rock has a black child. I'm not sure about that but if she means is you know it's somewhat I I don't think Kid Rock desert is a racist I've been to a couple of his concerts.

And I think he's an unbelievable talent singer songwriter does rock this country. Does wrapped and disorganization is not happy with him day out they claim that he has some really just benefited. Because of a rap music could kind of rap that he is putting into some of what he.
