He’s not the first and he won’t be the last. Actor, Liam Neeson said in an interview that he was “looking for an anonymous black man to kill as a way of seeking revenge for a white female friend of his being raped.” Neeson went out deliberately into black areas in the city looking to be set upon so that he could unleash physical violence. Yeah, yeah, yeah.. We know Liam, “you’re not racist.” This is a constant issue we are experiencing within our society, celebrities believe they have free reign to speak without thinking.

Until, there’s backlash. Celebrities forget how diverse their fanbase truly is. I wonder if the same amount of anger would have arose, had his friend been raped by a white man. Would he had walked through predominantly white areas and try to unleash physical violence? If you have to convince people you are not racist, you are racist.
