I think Liam Neeson is a wooden actor and I'm not here criticising his acting or many of the terrible films he's starred in.
As we have seen in recent days he's either being defended or criticised for the racist remark he made when he said he went out looking to kill a 'black bastard' because one of his friends was raped. Yes, it happened forty years ago but that doesn't excuse what he intended to do.
I can fully understand his anger when he was told of the rape but if he said he went out to kill the 'bastard' who carried out the rape then that is a completely different thing. For too long there have been thousands of blacks in the US killed because of many white people having the attitude Neeson had.
When interviewed on a TV programme he said he grew up in the North of Ireland where there were many revenge attacks based on sectarianism. That is to simplify the issue and in my opinion it's only making an excuse for something that he probably knows was wrong.
As he also said he isn't stupid so why did he say this 40 years later? Racism is wrong whether in the US or in this putrid little sectarian statelet.
