Phil Anselmo weighs in on the Confederate flag


Though Mayor Mitch Landrieu and the New Orleans City Council support taking down or renaming four Confederate monuments in the city, the hot-button issue of flying any of the Confederate flags hasn't become an issue in New Orleans ? probably because Confederate flags don't fly on any public property.

But musician Phil Anselmo ? a New Orleans native and ex-Pantera member, now performing with the all-star metal band Superjoint Ritual ? told the website Hard Rock Haven that he regretted Pantera's past use of the flag:

<blockquote> I?m coming up on 47 years old?and I think that if it?s upsetting enough to people in general, you know, I guess?this is tough to say without taking any side?like I said, I can see where if people see it as a symbol of hate then?these days, I wouldn?t want anything to ****ing do with it because truthfully?I wouldn?t. I wouldn?t want much to ****ing do with it at all and personally you know I would never?the way I feel and the group of people I?ve had to work with my whole life, you know?you see a Confederate flag out there that says ?Heritage, not hate.? I?m not so sure I?m buying into that, you know?

But I can look at any?people can point out flaws in any social group, any ethnic group, any ideology and anything like that and that?s once again because everybody has different ideas about things and at this point in time I just wish everybody would chill the **** out man and realize, you know, maybe a good dose of love, for lack of a better word, would do us all friggin? a lot better instead of pulling sides, taking sides.?
