    Default PHILIP ANSELMO Denies Being Racist After 'White Power' Shoutout At 'Dimebash' Event

    Former PANTERA frontman Philip Anselmo has denied being racist after a new video surfaced of him giving the right-arm salute and yelling a white-supremacist slogan at a California concert.

    Anselmo took part in last Friday's (January 22) Dimebash event at Lucky Strike Live in Hollywood and ended the show by giving what appeared to be a Nazi salute and screaming the words "white power" to the crowd.

    A YouTube user by the name of Chris R posted a clip of Anselmo's end-of-concert gesture (see below) and added the following note below the video: "I originally cut this from my first post of 'Walk' but I feel people deserve to see this! A very sad moment and to me ruined the night! This is not what PANTERA is about!!! Absolutely uncalled for and I can see why Vinny Paul [sic] wants nothing to do with this man. Phil Anselmo you are a Racist prick!!"

    After the clip started making the rounds earlier today, Anselmo himself responded to the controversy by adding the following comment below the video in question (posted from Anselmo's Housecore Records YouTube account): "Ok folks, I'll own this one, but dammit, I was joking, and the 'inside joke of the night' was because we were drinking fucking white wine, hahaha... Of all fucking things."

    He added: "Some of y'all need to thicken up your skin. There's plenty of fuckers to pick on with a more realistic agenda.

    "I fucking love everyone, I fucking loathe everyone, and that's that.

    "No apologies from me.

    "PHA '16"

    This is not the first time Anselmo has made comments from the stage that have been perceived as racist. At a March 1995 PANTERA concert at Montreal's Verdun Auditorium, Anselmo babbled forth in a stream-of-consciousness rant, uttering statements that included "rap music advocates the killing of white people." The Montreal Gazette reported on the incident, causing an international flurry and resulting in Anselmo releasing an open apology, stating: "I must take responsibility for the harmful words that may have racially offended our audience. First, to the black girl who has seen PANTERA six times, thank you for telling me how upset you were at me; it made a difference and I was very sincere with my apology. Second, I'd once again like to apologize to the security guards at the show. They were classy and professional, and came to talk to me after the show when they really didn't need to at all. They opened my eyes. And yes, they were black men. I have much respect for them. I extend my apologies and a thank you to them."

    In an August 2003 interview, Anselmo scoffed at the perception that he is racist. He said: "I'm anything fucking but. I know there's shitty people and beautiful people on both sides of the spectrum — black and white. And I know for an absolute fucking fact there's good Middle Eastern people who live here. And I know there's good Oriental people. But if I'm writing a song and it has to touch on the negatives of certain issues, I'm not gonna beat around the fucking bush and fence-ride — especially with SUPERJOINT [Anselmo's then-main band]. Before, with PANTERA, I had to be slightly careful. Now I don't. And I can see from the enthusiasm in the audiences that we're on our way to something extremely relevant — something on top of anywhere anybody thinks we might go".

    Not the first time he has done this. In fact its happened a lot including when he was in Pantera. There s an interview with him and Dime from around the time Vulgar was released talking about it. I think it was on an old Hard & Heavy video.

    The guy is a dick, that's for damn sure.

    Agreed! I still own and listen to a few great Pantera albuns. Yet Anselmo was never a fav vocal of mine - in a way, I think Yngwie was right about his feelings when he 1st listened to that guy singing.

    He's not the only caught in this type of shit. Nikki Sixx called a black security guard a n****r while on stage then tried to backtrack.

    He is not one iota different than any other person that gets on stage and says,"______ power!" That being said I have heard him speak and he sounds like a pretty angry guy. Is anyone surprised?

    He's a total douchebag (and a fat disgusting mess now too) but I'm still a fan of Pantera's music. They've got some great fucking tunes.

    Yeah, but Nikki did it once and that security guard was beating on a chick in the crowd (from memory) and Nikki ripped into him. That's no excuse for what he said, but you can kind of understand why he did it. He definitely wasn't on stage doing the Nazi salute. Big difference.

    VOCABULARY is a huge part of the problem relating to misunderstood derogatory comments. The idea that if you despise and abhore one single particular segment of a specific culture......and speak your mind about it.....

    All of a sudden you are considered a Racist. Full of hate against everybody.

    Well no- That's not exactly a fair conclusion.

    Look at Micheal Richards outburst. He was just pissed off at the time no big deal.

    Axl's infamous lyrics from " One In A Million " speak VOLUMES. That song is perfect in every single way possible. Telling it like it is from a personal sincere heartfelt perspective of frustration. Wondering why the neighborhood has changed. Pissed off about it.

    PROBLEM IS- There needs to be a new word to replace the traditional N word that describes Black folks who are gangster scumbags. Loud talking ignorant pieces of shit walking around like they ain't gotta care in the world. Threatening to kill people and shit. All those rap degenerates and street hustlers thiefs and pimps.

    As well as the young suburban punks who look up to and emulate these scumbags. With their shitty attitude talking loud. " Yo Yo Wassup Yo Yo " all that hip hop slang vocabulary.

    They can't simply say Yes or No.....They gotsta say Nah....or Yeah in that punk ass smirky way they say it.

    That's just the tip of the iceberg.

    So- I'll say straight up I truly do hate a whole lotta black people. Especially the younger ones......

    But- I like and have nothing against the rest of the black folks who are perfectly normal devoid of the gangster punk scumbag stereotype. Which is presumably the majority.

    But- If I say look at that piece of shit right there......

    I'm considered to be a racist. Fuck that shit. I don't need to explain anything to anybody.

    The " Race Card " is the most pathetic weak excuse for a whole lotta black folks. They throw it in your face all the time. Knowing in the political world they can use it to their advantage.

    I say- Fuck it.

    Who cares if someone misunderstood your comment. I'd rather speak my mind than bite my tounge because some piece of shit will point fingers at me.




    Ran across this pic of Dimebag Darrell. Thought he looked like a geek but didn't know where to post it so I'll put it here.

    We'll agree to disagree there, Dutchie. I don't see any reason to bring the guy's race into it. A scumbag is a scumbag regardless of his race. It wouldn't have made a difference if the guy was a large Icelandic wrestler, that situation still would have been wrong.

    Like I said, there was no excuse for Nikki to call the guy that, but shit happens in anger. You have a fight with the misses and the first words out of your mouth are usually slut or whore. You dont mean it but that's what happens. Nikki knew he fucked out straight away and tried to back out of it and he apologies in the media too.

    Again, Nikki said it once. Phil is a repeat offended. Absolutely no excuse for that.

    That's what I was referring to before because the scumbag of the situation is black it's not uncommon for regularly non racist folks to feebly and ignorantly use that word because theres no other equally derogatory substitute. So it becomes a catch 22 in the heat of the moment.

    Which is why it's imperative to have a new word implemented to use in the proper context at any given time when appropriate.

    I personally never use the N word because I like and admire so many black people from Hendrix to Eddie Murphy and regular cool folks. I would feel ashamed to use that word.

    But nonetheless feel a shitload of overwhelming contempt for a whole lotta other black folks and have no viable sociably acceptable putdown to refer to them as such.


    Here's a good example of traditional racism......
