Detroit - Kid Rock says criticism about his upcoming concerts in Detroit is politically motivated.

The Detroit-area native whose real name is Robert Ritchie posted an obscenity-laced response on Monday on Facebook to a planned protest by the National Action Network's Detroit chapter.

The first of six concerts is scheduled on Tuesday. The civil rights group last week called for their cancellation because of Kid Rock's past display of the Confederate flag during performances and his recent criticism of black former NFL player Colin Kaepernick for refusing to stand during the national anthem last year.

Kid Rock, who is white, wrote, "None of this would be going on if I were not thinking of running for office."

He has been encouraged to run for the US Senate as a Republican.
