Anthrax's Charlie Benante: "I don't think Philip Anselmo is a racist"


Anthrax drummer Charlie Benante recently talked to "Moshpit" radio show about Phil Anselmo's "white power" gesture, you can read an excerpt below.


He said: "I think Philip made a mistake. I think there were other things… other factors involved in that situation that people probably didn't see. And I've known Philip Anselmo forever, and I don't think Philip is a racist. I just think he's become the poster boy for this. And I know it shocked a lot of people and it pissed off a lot of people. But I think he's genuinely sorry for saying anything like that. And, yeah, he's my friend."
