-I'm not trying to offend anyone with this post, I just heard about this from a stupid kid I know.

This kid I know told me that Dimebag was a racist and that he went to jail for a short amount of time for getting in a fight with an african american. Also he had the confederate flag on many of his stuff so that would add up.

I was just wondering I have no proof, thought the pit might know.

I read somewhere about his wife being a racist she wrote like ****** on some kids thing he wanted signed. He comes of as a bit of a redneck to be honest.

From texas..plays in a southern metal band..youtube pantera rascist statement, phil says a lot of racist **** from the stage.

I don't doubt it. In fact, I would be quite surprised if Dime were not racist.

not trying to knock him. I love his playing and his music.

no, the confederate flag was because he is from Texas, which is in the south.....

i don't think that he was. my brother has a recording that he found online of phil and the rest of pantera performing, and at the end he does a big speech AGAINST racism, and really whaling on the people that are racist. also, for reference, Dime and Rita were never legally married, so his wife didn't do anything, because he didn't have a wife.

Getting in a fight with an african american doesn't make you a racist, and unfortunately the confederate flag is now commonly seen as just an act of "rebellion", and is just taken. It's their right to express their opinion, it's not their right to act on it.

Yet, after all this rebuttal, I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if he was. He seemed to be a nice enough guy, but Rita Halley just comes off like a redneck bitch, and he comes off as a really stereotypical texan, if you know what I mean. And about Rita writing what she did to some fan, if I was that kid, that would be the only time in my life I would ever hit a woman. That's just not something you say. Period. Ever. I don't care what color your skin is.

/my two cents.

Dimebag didn't have a wife, myth busted!
#30
Wait.

Do you mean to tell me that a redneck with the Confederate flag on his guitar who was born in 1960's Texas could have been RACIST?

Im sure he cant take offense, seeing as how he is dead.

Never liked Dimebag myself, but I have some respect for him like I do for all musicians.

If he IS racist though, then I have lost every ounce of respect I had for him.

No, he isn't a racist at all.

There's a video on youtube of him and Phil talking from the Monster of Rock show in Moscow from 1991 that adresses this. Phil talks about discouraging the dumbass racists who come to their shows. He also said they see all types of people when they play shows, from blacks to asians.

That right there nullifies any dribble about to come out of the kid's mouth.

It would surprise me if he was, seemed like the nicest mother fucker on God's green earth...

I know Phil is but I'm not sure if Dime was or not. I'll go with that he was just a little or he wouldn't put up with Phil as much but I don't think he was extreme with it.
