Apart from being the most generic looking person in the world to me (my face blindness hits its absolute peak with him), seems like he’s also a complete donut and decided to admit in an interview that he was so upset that his friend was raped by a black man, that he roamed the streets armed with a weapon hoping to find a ‘black *******’ who would have a go at him so that Neeson could murder him. Why? Because he knew who the attacker was or where to find him? Oh no. He just wanted to kill any black man to make himself feel better, or avenge his loved one’s rape, or something, because you know it’s all about him and his feelings. “God forbid you’ve ever have a member of your family hurt under criminal conditions,” said the man who roamed the streets for a week looking for an opportunity to murder someone, apparently without a trace of irony. Opinion seems to be split between calling neeson a racist (certainly at that time, I would agree), and calling him brave for reflecting on his knee-jerk angry reaction and learning from it (luckily before an innocent person was murdered), but it does strike me that had it been a black man talking about how he roamed the streets for a week armed with a crowbar looking for a white man to murder, there’d be a lot less instinct to start clamouring for psychologists to explain and justify his reaction by examining the context and the feelings he was experiencing at the time. That Neeson feels he can just admit this so freely apparently without thinking of the consequences is shocking in itself.
