2015 is almost over, right? Jezebel alum Lindy West brings to our attention an interview with an apparently idiotic 41-year-old by the name of Dustin Hill, who leads a band of five white men calling themselves “Black Pussy.” The band claims they’re named after Rolling Stones’ original title for the song “Brown Sugar,” a song that has been documented in its racism by critics at least since Robert Christgau’s Pazz & Jop poll was in single-digits.

Hill, it seems, is upset that in February, someone launched a Change.org petition to boycott the band until it changed its name to something that didn’t reference a racist song. As a result of the petition, several national news outlets picked up the story, questioning whether such a name choice from a group of white men in one of the statistically whitest cities in the nation could ever really be defensible, particularly when the justification for choosing such a name was so pointlessly banal. (Hill and company apparently really just love Tarantino.)

Hill, though, thinks that the real problem here is “PC culture” being “out of control.” By way of defending his band’s name, after clarifying that “politically and economically, I’m very educated at a very crazy level,” he tells Seattle Weekly:

I think South Park is calling a lot of good points out right now. When these people say Black Pussy is racist and sexist, I’m like, “You’re spiritually sick.” I think a lot of people are spiritually sick. I dare these people to do DMT. I dare these people to do a heroic dose of psilocybin, go in, and then see if Black Pussy is sexist or racist. These people explore bottom-feeder dimensions. Do DMT, this won’t even matter.

Holy shit, man, thank you Dustin Hill! God, this is so funny. It’s such an important discovery that everyone’s illness—which is to say concern about racism and sexism in a society that, like, systemically kills black women for no reason but being black women—can just be like, washed away with Dimethyltryptamine, a psychedelic drug which reportedly causes strong hallucinations. The Spirit Molecule is Within Us All. If only everyone who’s offended by his band name could just see, after taking “heroic” doses of psilocybin, that we’re just trying to ruin these four adult white men’s good time playing rock and roll and using black women’s images to promote their jams. I mean, they do a “Don’t Fear the Reaper” cover—where would the music landscape be without them? Perhaps we, the women, are the actual oppressors. Makes ya think.

This man apparently also believes that Black Lives Matter is funded by George Soros (it’s not) and that it functions as an “agenda to create more racism.” So educated! Very crazily educated, indeed.
