Topeka A Kansas legislator who drew criticism for a “RedNeck Rap” against Barack Obama says he’ll produce another YouTube video praising the president.
But Republican state Rep. Bill Otto also says he won’t apologize for his earlier posting.
Otto agreed to make the new video after talking to Sonny Scroggins, a Topeka activist critical of the anti-Obama rap. The two men met Wednesday in Topeka.
In the “RedNeck Rap,” Otto wore a ballcap calling opossum “the other dark meat.” Otto says the words referred to his own “hillbilly” heritage, not to Obama, the nation’s first black president.
Otto plans to post the video of his new rap next week and says he’ll praise Obama for trying to help older Americans.
Otto is from the town of LeRoy, about 75 miles south of Topeka.
