No, I don’t mean Jack Daniels infected with spores of a sheep disease. It’s the band Anthrax and their new, er, firewater called Indians.
Some may find that name offensive, preferring to default to “Native Americans” instead. Some may also take offense on the grounds that the introduction of alcohol to the indigenous peoples of this continent wrought untold misery on them.
However, we can be pretty certain that Anthrax meant no offense whatsoever.
ITEM 1: In 1987, the band released a song called “Indians” which dealt with how white settlers engaged in persecution (genocide?) of Native Americans. They’re actually on the side of the Indians.
ITEM 2: Anthrax singer Joey Belladonna is Native American himself. That sort of gives him a pass, doesn’t it?
