    his racist tendencies are showing in multiple ways and one way is that he could have EASILY told that story and not mentioned race. Ppl would have enjoyed the story. But he couldn't help himself.

    he just had to mention he was black and call him black bastard. that story gets borderline celebrated if he leaves race out of it imo.

    This is literally my point, and the only point I'm making. For the 3rd or 4th time: none of that is justification of the behavior, it's an explanation of why he, and many people, react that way.

    No one needed this. We're all college-educated adults, fyi.

    But thanks for the reminder that you're looking for your excuse to kill black people, I guess?

    ha ha ha We are college educated adults here, we get it! We are smart, we know things! Now let me ignore where you repeatedly say that the reminder of why we react this way is NO JUSTIFICATION for his behavior, and accuse you of using this as an excuse to kill black people.

    ehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

    I don’t see how race plays a role in this. She said a black dude raped her so he went out looking for a person that matched the description. Definitely not smart, but, without more, I don’t see a racial element.

    If the suspect was a white guy, I’m not sure he mentions the race in his interview.

    This Liam Neeson case has a distinctly racist undertone, but my old soccer coach had a similar reaction. His sister got raped in Downtown Mobile (incidentally, by a black guy) and he and his brother spent 2-3 days down there driving around looking for the guy that fit his sister’s description.

    Nothing happened, and you can argue it wasn’t a logical response but that kind of thing happening to a woman you love can do things to the primal brain. This guy was not a hardo either, pretty regular guy

    Boy, I just think it's a really bad look for a bunch of white guys to be driving around indiscriminately looking for a black man to beat, torture, and kill.

    Your coach was looking for the person who did it.

    Liam stated he was looking for ANY "black bastard".

    If he wanted to rid the world of a black man that truly deserved it he had his chance when he worked with OJ Simpson filming Naked Gun.

    Neeson says he had asked about the race of the attacker, along with other descriptive characteristics.

    He says he had a "primal urge to lash out" before he was shocked by his reaction and sought help from a priest and friends.

    Neeson says he's not a racist.

    The actor says we need to talk about these things because bigotry and racism exist.


    Neeson was promoting his new thriller, "Cold Pursuit."

    Another one of those moments where two dudes who have no fucking clue what they are talking about. Should probably steer clear of the subject at hand. Sam Harris stokes me as the type of individual at a party that would drop a “actually it’s ___” during a group discussion.

    I am not a fan of his delivery. "I'm the smartest guy in the room, and let me educate you...."

    Is he wrong here? Had LN's friend been raped by an Asian guy, and Liam walked the streets hoping an Asian guy started some shit with him so he could kill him, would LN have been racist against Asians at that point (and, presumably, not at all racist against blacks)?
