    Liam Neeson is no racist. It was 40 years ago and he felt bad about nearly straight away, back 40 years ago. Is a great interview of a famous black football player from England defending Neeson. Saying if only more people were honest as he was the whole race issue that still exists today could be talked about in a more open way. Have to understand were Neeson lived 40 years ago too. Northern Ireland were you had political trouble and terrorism going on. Lot of people were very angry who lived in the North of Ireland. He simply reacted after hearing a female friend was raped by a black man. But it was 40 years ago. He didn't actually harm anybody 40 years ago. It was a thought he had in his head. To hunt a black person down and hope they tried to pick a fight with him. That was the height of it. How he felt and what he was thinking. Never did attack a black person. Felt guilty within a week and went to speak with the local priest about how he was feeling. The anger of what happened to his female friend and what he felt like doing. And there it ended. And so it should be left alone. He said if it had of been a white catholic male or a Protestant, he would have acted the same way, in wanting to go after them too. But as is normal, they only picked up on the black man. Ignoring the rest of what he said. The white catholic male. The white protestant male.

    Yeah, I also meant to add that what a person said doesn't even need to be in context. People can quote mine bits and pieces of what you said and it doesn't matter if you apologized or clarified. A lot of people aren't willing to dig deeper into the situation and will just take whatever source's word for it without a second thought. People love their pitchforks, I guess. Haha.

    May as well add in that 40 years ago in Ireland finding a black person would have been very hard. Just the way it was back then. You had a few doctors. The country only changed over the past 20 years. Look at any sitcom from that era and jokes were racist and sexist. It was simply how things were back then. It was a different era. It does still exist today. It has not gone away. People simply don't talk about it. Liam Neeson was just been honest about a thought he had 40 years ago. Look were it has got him. That is why others would not speak openly about such things. So it will always remain an issue.


    Just watch this short clip from Father Ted. This is how Ireland is. We joke. Meaning it as a joke. Trying to be as we always were. This sums it up to perfection.

    But yeah, I agree with what you wrote. I've never read 1984, but the terms groupthink and thought crime come to mind. I also wonder how much of the outrage in stories like this is exaggerated. Thousands of people on twitter are just a drop in the bucket. But to somebody on the outside it looks like that's what the majority believe. Idk.

    I saw someone with a backpack that had this little bubble window with a cat in it at the store. It made my whole day. Lol I had no idea it was a thing.

    @Doseone Being able to fit a pet inside a backpack would be so convenient. My dog is a tad too heavy for that to work.

    Dogs are not for bags. That just became the IT girl fashion thing. Buy a dog to put in your bag.
