Liam Neeson

Actor Liam Neeson ignited a firestorm of controversy on social media after he described seeking revenge on "some Black bastard" when he found out a friend had been brutally raped.

"I asked, did she know who it was? No," Neeson recalled. "What color were they? She said it was a Black person."

Neeson described the incident to The Independent while promoting his latest film Cold Pursuit, in which his character attempts to avenge the death of his son.

The 66-year-old Irish actor said he walked the streets hoping to pick a fight with a Black man - any Black man - so he could kill him.

Neeson said he "went up and down areas with a cosh [a stick or crowbar], "hoping I'd be approached by somebody - I'm ashamed to say that - and I did it for maybe a week, hoping some Black bastard would come out of a pub and have a go at me about something, you know? So that I could kill him."

Neeson's words caused a firestorm of condemnation on Twitter.com. He was the #1 trending topic on Twitter on Monday.

Outraged social media users accused Neeson of being a racist and a white supremacist.

One user, @IamGMJohnson, tweeted: "Liam Neeson is definitely a reminder that there are folks who walk around hoping to provoke Black people so they can kill us. A lot of them are in law enforcement and politics."

Others defended the actor, saying they might have done the same thing if someone raped their loved ones. Most agreed that no one knows how they would respond in a similar situation.

    think this is a case of.....when you think you are venting and remembers that you are being recorded.....when keeping it real....goes wrong....
    I think this is a thought that he should have kept to himself.....just saying...

  • PhillyFacts

    At least we know what type of pos we're dealing with; nothing like a blunt racist, it’s the ones who choose to omit their racism that worry me.

  • Thingamajig

    Ignorance is dangerous! So what, white men don’t rape? Why not have that same energy for the catholic priest raping all those boys?!

  • Soda

    Why did he even ask what color the guy was? I guess he didn't have a problem with Black women the way he was all up in Viola Davis' mouth in the opening scene of Widows.

  • Li-Wright

    Nothing wrong with how he felt. If a friend of mine had been raped by ANYBODY, I would want to kill them, or seek revenge. I think Liam's emotions are real. I don't understand his apology.

  • Pitty Patty

    Shocking....NOT!

  • Li-Wright

    He's not racist, he's real. That's how ANYBODY FEELS when they have a relative or friend who's been assaulted.

  • PhillyFacts

    Yes.. Rape, killing (Susan Smith) etc anything barbaric...

  • Soda

    He wasn't looking for the rapist, just any Black man.

  • Banka

    Did anyone ask for this information ....smfh wow !!

  • HotInCleveland

    Because any black man should pay for a black rapist’s act of sexual violence.

  • Li-Wright

    He should have kept his mouf shut! Who cares what he thinks. BTW, he was in a movie Widows, where he did the nasty with Viola davis. Did you see the movie?

  • Li-Wright

    He should have kept his mouth shut....who cares?

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    And the black Lt. Governor.
    Someone is trying to get a Republican back in Virginia's governor's mansion by any means necessary.

  • Li-Wright

    Still, who cares??? How did this come up in an interview??? He has remorse, keep it to yourself.

  • PhillyFacts

    Real is seeking revenge on the intended target; not blindly targeting a race of innocent men... That’s phucking rascist..

  • Meme

    Dont be so silly you want the exact person who did it not someone who looks like them (in this case he was just looking for any old black person). Imagine your loved one gets attacked for no apparent reason but because they are the same colour as someone who committed a crime

  • Cocoa Rose

    Bingo! Yet, they want us to not blame all white people for white supremacy and institutional racism.

  • Thingamajig

    So basically he’s saying that if she was raped by a white guy than that’s alright? White men don’t rape? Would he have gone around looking for a white man to club? Would it be right for me to club any white man because they all ignorant like him?

  • PhillyFacts

    It’s black men they’re threatened by...

  • Coy little wink

    Its everywhere since last week

    Should have kept this to himself. smh.

    Haven't watched widows, but still he was being paid to do it!!

    If they succeed, the Dems better dig dirt on whoever that Republican governor is. Dems better wake up and play dirty just like these Repugnants .

  • WutizstillHERE!
  • Soda

    Apparently, you do, the way you keep repeating the same thing without understanding why the subject came up. Have you seen the character he's known for playing? Someone who takes revenge.

  • Trace da Ace

    No, I have not seen that movie....heard about it...just has not made my play list yet...but I will be sure to check it out. But absolutely he should have kept that to himself...hell I have a couple of YT folks at my job who I would love to throat punch....but you don't see me talking about that at the water cooler!!!

  • Nathan Hastings

    Why did he ask what color was the assailant?

  • Thingamajig

    YOU A GOTDAMN LOSER LIAM!

  • HotInCleveland

    ??????

  • The Art

    So, he wanted to kill a random black person because some other black person raped his friend? Sounds like racism to me! What if her rapist had been white, then what? Would he have wanted to kill a random white man or just the actual perpetrator? Of course he was understandably upset that his friend was raped, but the rapist being black made it that much more worse for him and justified killing a random black to avenge her dishonor. This dude seems to think that he's one of those characters he plays in the movies. He very well could have run up on the right random black person and got his whole life taken from him.

  • WutizstillHERE!

    So if she would have said a white guy did it..would he have been running down every white dude he saw? The answer is fuknah...

  • Keyshia Ray

    Well he is cancelled...

  • Thingamajig

    Cause if it was a white dude he would’ve made sure to go after that one dude alone, but nah, since it was a black guy, all black men must pay for that shat. Liam’s a damn loser!

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Dems don't have the spines or guts to get gully like Republicans, unfortunately.

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    Black folks need to worry about the thousands of rapes and murders black men and doing to black women

    he walked the streets hoping to pick a fight with a Black man - any Black man - so he could kill him
    ____________________________
    TYPICAL yt man's rage/mentality.

  • The Art

    He definitely over shared and should have kept it to himself. But now that he put it out there, it makes him seem racist. By his logic all blacks were responsible his friend's rape and he had a right to kill any one of us because of that. I don't gaf how much remorse he claims to have, his white privilege has him comfortable enough to admit to that ish in public and still feel as though he should be given a pass.

    Right... Fugg Liam

  • Ni Ni

    Somethings you discuss amongst your peeps when you're famous. My uncle told me about this old white guy whose daughter was raped by a black man at a store she worked at. She was never the same, mentally. He too felt some kind of way about black men...for a while at least. I didn't fault him; I'd probably feel the same if it were a white man who did it to my fam.

  • Coy little wink

    On point ?

    Exactly! Most of us light skinned blacks are that color due to white men raping our ancestors

  • DroneRivers

    How is "What color were they?" the very next question you think to ask? Did this friend go to the police and fill out a report? This dude must think he's really Brian Mills from Taken. He's lucky he didn't try the wrong Black bastard and get his old ass handed to him.

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    hopefully, you would want to kill the perpetrator and not some random innocent person

  • Reenaface

    Kelsey Grammar's sister was murdered by a black man. You can Google this, of course it had to hurt but he didn't echo the same sentiments that Liam has publicly. Instead, he chose to work and support black people by being an executive producer for the show ' Girlfriend's. Also, he worked with Martin Lawrence on a show that wasn't on the air for a long time.
    It's the intent behind a person's words but also this is black and white duality at play, the black and white paradigm, good vs evil having these comments aired in public during of all months black history month inciting fear to get a race war started.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

  • Phillybruh

    But then that's another check for them...lol

  • DroneRivers

    So we can't talk about racism because there is crime within the Black community? I promise you every other race's community has crime in it and they still manage to find a way to care about more than one issue at a time.

  • Mielle Downey

    He should feel no shame. He was thinking what we all think. We rally behind a man who thinks he is woman so why not respect a man who showing his basic human instincts. We are mammals, Men in dresses arn't women. Lets just stop looking over the cliff like we want to jump. Some people have no filter and life is a teacher. maybe he learned from his mistake of tmi

    "hoping some Black bastard" Wow, I would never in a million years expect this from Liam. I understand he is a remorseful now but it still stings. I guess they really do see us all the same. How sad.

  • Bashi22

    Common I’m waiting for you to forgive Liam too.

    But why though, who are his handlers and why didn't they stop the interview as soon as he said friend of mine was raped and black.. Stop tape!

  • iWasteTime

    Why did he offer that information up?!?
    People are cray cray for real!

  • Reenaface

    True, but it's all relative. Especially given that he could have run his mouth like Liam but chose not to. If I remember correctly he visited the guy in jail to ask him why he murdered his sister.

  • hottlanta

    Now u know how emmit till mother felt when her son was murdered via the lies of a white woman. Good thing for u couldnt find a black man 2 attack 2 get rid of your rage. Bcas u would have ran upon a black man who got a shitty white manager who cheated out of his paycheck treat him like shyt n he was a coupla dollars short. U would not b alive.

  • Cannelle

    No surprises here. The white Irish have a long history of being racist. When he acquired American citizenship (at least someone did their immigration paperwork properly), it was clear that he fit quite well with white American racists.

  • Fire & Ice

    Nothing new with yt

  • ingridbergman

    Exactly. Would he have said “white bastard” no, he wouldn’t have.

  • Reenaface

    His handlers were probably in on releasing the interview.

  • Cannelle

    Wondering if he will end up like Mel Gibson ?

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    This and I do like Liam ...... it does put a fear there .... Good Observation Nini .... precisely why folks feel the same about (some) whites .... I don't fought his feelings. ..... and I do respect honesty ... do I agree .... nah .... but I do see the source of the mess as to why he feels that way https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/c1425c997ed3319b16098cad0d4bebaabde80cd22860d557863b4ff2c949aed9.gif we all have been shanked by a different color ... but I have learned through love and healing ..... hell my own color done fawked me over .... truth be told more than any other nationality .... It's a natural reaction to feel this way .... but do not hang on to that same logic (or energy) at all !!!!! Heal from it and realize everyone ain't da same .... a Broad perspective needs to be used here for personal judgement .... But ima sit back and keep watching see more mask fall off and shyt

  • Reenaface

    Mel still makes money move by being a highly paid producer.

    This interview was too good not to release, I'm sure they tried to stop it.

  • INDUSTRY GURU

    I mentioned on here recently about people in Hollywood that have issues that society would find despicable that are hidden from the public eye - but well known in the Industry.

    Harvey Weinstein, Roman Polanski, Barry Singer, Charlie Sheens decades of Aids all well known but because the amout of money they generated entertainment executives conspired in collusion with a liteny of hollywood fixers, lawyers and PR Agents to keep money rolling in. Russell Crowe and Liam Neeson are WELL KNOWN alcoholic bitter racist with a trail of incidents behind closed doors.Remember this when people in the Industry start "acting" shocked and appalled.

    There is "no business like show business"... indeed.

  • Pamela

    Mel crazy but I like his azz. Great actor and director.

  • Cannelle

    White privilege. Neeson will probably do the same after he fades into obscurity for a couple of years, he will be back on top. Or something.

  • Mielle Downey

    I can respect that. A lot of ADOS's feel the same way a bout white people due to the history of slavery so the point I am trying to make is that we as humans have this in us and some times it is relevant and sometimes it is hidden. One expressed his feelings openly and the other hid his.Due to the gravitiy of the situation Liams feeling are not out of the ordinary.

  • DroneRivers

    Nah. Mel Gibson said bad things about Jews. That's a big no no.

  • Cannelle

    Lots of illegal immigrants from Ireland in Boston. It would be a shame if they all got deported ?

  • Cannelle

    I thought that he said that he hoped his wife got raped by a pack of black men or some such crazy.

    Nonetheless, you are right that it was probably the Jewish comments that actually did him in.

  • Reenaface

    I get your point but I still think that there is the race agenda pushed to incite fear like they did with resurrecting the fear of the "noose" like they did in the Jasmine Barnes and Jussie Smollet psyop. Now, they're inciting/encouraging the physical harm of black men via Hollyweird asset Liam Neeson during black history month.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Yall are shocked like Liam aint from Ireland...they racist as hell over there...

  • Bashi22

    He love to forgive his co-stars especially white ones.

  • hottlanta

    Yep there r a lot of black men walking around just like he was just waiting on any excuse 2 "set it off". They still saying "l wish a mofo would". Had he kept walking n made a left turn your prayers would have truly been answered but not the way u would have wanted them to.

  • VernadineTheQueen?

    It’s over for this white trash. I will never support anything movie he is in. Old, washed up, long b00ty a$$! ??

  • Soda

    But why stop at color, why not feel some kind of way about all men? They are the ones who commit most of the crimes. The answer: because it's not reasonable.

  • Reenaface

    Humiliation ritual- The elite loves playing these mind control games Liam is a Hollyweird asset.

  • Joy King

    If what Liam Neeson said resonates as true, then America should embrace the anger and frustration Black people continue to harbor. Many of our ancestors were slaves who were raped and beaten by white men. Or fast forward to the present, where innocent Black men and women are killed by trigger happy white police officers.

    Should Black people be justified to hate white folks and seek revenge for our family members who suffered at their hands. If not, then please don't condone what Liam said, unless you're willing to make those same excuses for Black people.

  • Mielle Downey

    I agree with you that a lot of the stuff in the media is a coherence, but it is pre-election season and this is a trigger topic. I choose not to be controlled by my emotions because it is a sign of weakness. When we hear something that is even overtly racist we have a knee jerk reaction. I am apart of the human race and I will not let anyone treat me like an animal that they can control by command words. If a man shows remorse let be, at least he showed you his true colors.

  • SpillyNillie

    I can see him being worked up simply off the fact that she was raped. His rage went to a different level when he found out the perpetrator was Black. I honestly don't think he would've gone around town looking for any white man to beat. Any Black man he came across was good enough. Why? Because they don't see the MAN they only see the COLOR.

  • DroneRivers

    Oh yeah I forgot about that rant! Yeah, I doubt Hollywood kicked up much of a fuss over that. But if you say anything bad about Jewish or gay people....you can forget it!

  • hottlanta

    Lee Daniels where r u. Did u ask your black gay friends 2 publically outlaw this violent language 2 do harm such as bring death 2 straight black men. Since it was so important for u 2 ask straight black men 2 publucally support jussie last week n anybody who didnt do it will b accused of being homophobic. All i hear r crickets from your azz.

  • Kimocha

    So he wanna talk about being mad??... There's plenty of black folks from the past to the present that's been raped, lynched, falsely accused, beat to death, shot to death, dragged to death, stomped to death, burned to death, etc...Does he really think he can compare?...He can kiss my blk azz!

  • Reenaface

    I get your point. And I could understand it if Liam's anger was pinpointed at the particular person who committed the crime had his friend given him a name. But to set out to attack any man with a dark hue of skin tone because of vengeance is out of line. As quick as they are to call the cops on people of color one must wonder why his friend didn't report the incident to the police?

  • Reenaface

    I see your point there.

  • XoXo

    I’ll tell you, these folks suffering from the MAGA syndrome give zero fcks about the repercussions of the statements they make. But he did speak his truth, and now we all know exactly how he feels. Because I had no idea that was his mindset, so now that we know, we just won’t support him, and he can fade into obscurity. Bum.

  • Vonn

    Anyone defending him is twice as nuts as he is. He was going to randomly kill a black person because his "friend" said her rapist was black. He could have used that wasted energy to try to find her ACTUAL rapist. Her rapist may not have even been black...y'all know how folks love blaming someone black.

  • Yardgirl

  • Nik

    He should have kept his mouth shut on that one. However, from what I know of real deal Irish people, they don't have a filter. With his clout and visibility, his tact and sense of awareness should have trumped his inclination to tell it like it is. Something to note is that this is how racism starts with some people. They or a loved on have one bad incident with a particular group of people and that instills fear and loathing. I was teaching in Eastern Europe and my group was warned about dealing with the Roma (aka gypsies) because they are said to, "steal, are all on welfare, and bring our neighborhoods down." Everyone was like yea, let's stay way from them and I was like HOLD UP! That's what people say about us black folks in America! Everyone had to check themselves.

  • Scorpio

    This kind of thinking, that Liam is speaking about, hurting and killing any black person (who supposedly committed a crime) to satisfy anger, hate, and rage against the group, is the same thinking that happened when juries would convict innocent Black Americans through history and even now in some cases, knowing the person on trial isn't the person who committed the crime, if a crime was committed at all. Just the need to appease, the hate and to hurt and punish the group as a whole.

Tell your friend to call the police! That's what they're for! I have a strong feeling he would've gotten that ass beat anyway.

  • SG

    Right. Bye.

  • Luvi

    Yes, and historically speaking, in the early 20th century Irish were regarded as trash low totem pole white people "n*gg**s. The ONE THING that they leveraged to move away from that status was the COLOR OF THEIR SKIN.

  • YellowSauce

    People tell this lie all the time ... it always seems to be some big black guy no matter WHO really did it .... I'm so sick of this country and yes i'm considering really leaving and only visiting when I feel serious nostalgia ... I'm so disappointed in Liam .... You never know ANYBODY this is why "reputation" almost means nothing because no matter how much you THINK you know a person they can boom do things you never thought they would do ... I have no more faith in common decency or common sense ... I want to know where everybody's brains went ... His mentality is that of a 13 year old ... it is also so ironic that he actually said that because african americans have real reasons to hate all caucasian's because of what some have done to us ...... don't let me get started .... smh lol

  • Musiclover

    Right it’s like every movie he does is like Taken but Part 50 although I enjoyed them,
    With the exception of The grey the ending was lack luster.

    This doesn't suprise me. I believe "They" all think like this.

    Black folks are condemned everywhere, even in Africa!!
    We free thinking Black folks need to build our own communities..
    “Atlas Shrugged” by Ayn Rand cemented this thought. I am slowly trying to put things in action.

    It shows how much they don't see themselves nor do they even try to think before they speak like we have to. Every f'in thing we say, we have to think about context, how it sounds, what words we use, who we're talking to, need I go on? He should be ashamed being Irish and talking this BS. Others think the Irish are no better than the dirt under your shoe. I can't stand when ppl who deal with this kinda stuff dish it out to others. They all think this way, even when nobody has allegedly raped his friend. I'm beginning to think they're using this racial stuff to get press. They don't value our dollars and know we will blow up. Then folks will know he's done a movie. Did you know before this? Me neither.

  • Youcan’tbanmesucka

    He's believing his acting scripts lol. Go right ahead and get f'd up. Did he go to the hood, or stay uptown? You best believe he didn't try that sh@@t in the hood ?

  • Youcan’tbanmesucka

    He's believing his acting scripts lol. Go right ahead and get f'd up. Did he go to the hood, or stay uptown? You best believe he didn't try that sh@@t in the hood ?

  • Raquel

    His family member probably lied as most white women do. And these are the white women black men so strongly fight for, yet they're the first race they go to when they lie about who committed the crime. I guess.

  • Raquel

    Wanda Sykes might. ???

  • dontgetblocked

    This is why I could never marry a white person. Deep down, they really do hate us. What does it matter if the rapist was white, Chinese, black, green, blue? He used to be one of my favorite actors. Now I see he's just a racist looking for a reason to kill black folk.

  • Marlika

    Thank you!!

  • Marlika

    Phawk this cracka ass cracker. His mama problems suck a black bastards d*ck!! ?

  • Dun Dilly

    DEAR NEESON,

    some Sht you keep to your damn self.

  • dontgetblocked

    It wasn't even a family member. It was his friend.

  • dontgetblocked

    He's foreign so I'm not even sure it was here. England or some shlit...anywhere he could find a reason to fight a black man. It would have been funny if he picked the wrong one and got f-d up.

  • dontgetblocked

    If he had said he walked around looking for a gay man or Jew, this would be a huge story. But he said a black man. Public enemy number one.

  • dontgetblocked

    And you should be but we don't walk around with a weapon looking for a fight.

  • Alicia.Ashe

    Shut up

  • Anunnaki, in A twilight Zone

    When will blacks realize white people hate you , come the fck on, stop being surprise and shocked. They show you everyday subliminally , smh. At black folks.

  • dontgetblocked

    As I get older, I let very few if any white people into my private life. I noticed that many who have married into the family have some white tendencies. They may love that black man but not embrace the black community. Many are jealous of black women. Like I said, I keep the white devil outside of my home.

  • Chicagowise

    He should have brought his dumb @$$ to Englewood, Austin or South Shore. They would have supersized his order. ?

  • dontgetblocked

    This is a clear cut example of what they think about us. From his own mouth. Isn't he part of liberal Hollywood? Are they going to blacklist him? This mofo got some damn nerve!

  • HoneyHitchcock

    I have a strong feeling that had he killed a black person, highly likely the wrong person. He would have gotten away with it.

  • VernadineTheQueen?

    Yes!!???

  • lovelygamour

    at least he was honest and it serves as a reminder. everyone has to be aware because nice looking people can be crazy. just imagine the poor guy who just wanted a drink. he would've had to have fought crazy liam neeson. no telling what drugs liam may have been on at the time. I have been yelled at because I walked in on someone having a bad day. so I don't think neeson had the intentions of being racist but it turned into a racist event. like me distrusting a certain type of white men and all white women until I really get to know them over a course of months. I don't mean to be racist but what Im doing is racist. I think liam was giving an example that we have to check our actions-what he was trying to do was racist. now if he beat up a black person I would call him racist. that woman probably wasn't even raped but wanted some attention or was taking the heat off something else. plus there wasn't that many black people in Ireland when he was young. so technically he could've ran into the "suppose" one. if she didn't give a full description then no action should've been taking. white women and there half stories. they tell just enough to get everyone upset and suspicious.

  • lovelygamour

    the jewish public would make him donate a million to isreal and give speeches for 20 years. yet black people just want him to shut up and possible go back to Ireland.

  • Whiplash(lacejagger)

    So I should feel bad for wanting to f up any white person on site after I watched Roots for the first time?

  • lovelygamour

    cause it sounds like temporary insanity. after his pub walk I guess he went inside for a drink. so was looking for a black guy his excuse for really going for a drink. I believe he is an alcoholic.

  • lovelygamour

    I think these white women date black guys so if something goes wrong she can blame him being black. its just weird to me. I know this one white women and let her tell it, she has never dated a good guy and she only dates black guys. that's crazy. sounds like she is going out of her way to date a problem black men too me.

  • lovelygamour

    he is was Ireland back in the 70-80s. there was very few black people. probably one of the reasons his pea brain thought he should "go find em". he walked around streets with a bunch of bars on them. basically he sounds like a drunk looking for a fight.

  • lovelygamour

    he was in Ireland back in the day. I think the whole point of his telling the story was to illustrate how people can fall into racism. there was very few black people in Ireland back then. he has always struck me as crazy and this cements it. I am glad he told the story. no one takes the skinny white guy seriously but those are the ones causing trouble.

  • Choppituph

    where you thinking about moving to? I've toyed with leaving myself. I just can't think of a safe continent?

  • lovelygamour

    the roma are an oppressed group and most have learned the ways of thievery in order to make a life. so there is a difference.

  • lovelygamour

    I think he is related to terrorist back in his own country.

  • Anunnaki, in A twilight Zone

    Right They hate us, but we in love with them....smgdh. make it make sense

  • lovelygamour

    that's usually whoopi goldbergs job. I don't take her serious anymore.

  • hottlanta

    If I don't hate white women after this slap heard around the world I am good. Oh boy hate black men because some chick left him for a black man years ago and he has been having dyck envy every since and using this rape as an example to get his revenge. I can see right thru his mess.

    U know Dump gonna say AA employment has been the lowest ever since he has been President. Someone needs to screen shot and fact check him during his speech tomorrow night to show him that the lowest employment for AA was during slavery. Everybody had a job from an embryo to Ole Tom who was 108 years old.

  • hottlanta

    I have always said the only reason why white folks wanna be with us is for money or sex. Do you think those white folks would have wasted their time calling the cops on black people last year for petty BS if they thought we were bankable or fyckable. Especially the white women. Had one of those black men hit on BBQ Becky she would not have called 911 at all.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    But yet, you support one of the biggest racist in America. GTFOOH

  • Carlotta Gomez

    What difference did the SO CALLED RAPIST COLOR MAKE ??? The big issue is that his friend was Raped so what did color have to do with it ?? History has shown more times then not , that when a white woman gets raped it has always been a conveince to blame it on a black person. How does he know she wasnt messing with some married man that didnt want to be bother with her anymore ? Or was made to feel like a HO because of having a one night stand with some fool that she thought was gonna be with her forever...Not all but when White folks get rejected some kind of way they will cause all kinds of problems for other people

  • Carlotta Gomez

    hahaha right!

  • Carlotta Gomez

    YOURE NOT EVEN LYING!!!!

  • Nik

    It was the realization that we had no prior contact with the Roma, and whether the stereotype is true or not, some people readily believed it based on the testimony of another versus personal experience.

  • Carlotta Gomez

    Black men are in love with them! I have never in my life heard so many men of color go all out disrespecting black women then in the same breath PRAISING THE HELL OUT OF WHITE WOMEN! SOMETHING WHITE MEN DONT EVEN GO OUT OF THEIR WAY TO DO!! and if the white woman was so great then why the hell did the white man constantly have his ass in the slave quarters if he already had

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    Oh yes we do

  • TheOwley

    Who doesn't want to kill the bastard that rapes your friend? We all want that person to pay. A RAPIST IS A RAPIST IS A RAPIST. You need not put a modifier in front of that word. When you modify the description to jew, black, white, yes white, latino, etc, the problem is YOU.

  • Carlotta Gomez

    White males from the beginning of time have always envied black men! there are other men from different cultures and walks
    of life BUT THEY JUST HAVE TO hATE ON THE BLACK MAN!! YA KNOW WHY ?? BECAUSE LITTLE DO BLACK MEN REALIZE THEY ARE THE ONLY ONES THAT CAUSE WHITE MEN EXTREME INSECURITY!!!! HAHAHAHAHA BROTHERS WAKEEEEEE UP KNOW YOUR DAMN POWER!!!!!!

  • butterscotch

    This reminds me of Rosewood, FL they killed all the black men hell woman and children too over a white woman saying a black man raped her. Sad to know the mindset still exists

  • Carlotta Gomez

    WHITES USE BLACKS TO DRAW POWER FROM US!!!! IS A SPIRITUAL THING! DO YOUR HOMEWORK PEOPLE!!!! WE DONT DRAW POWER OR STRENGTH FROM THEM ! WE ARE EXTREMELY EMPOWERING PEOPLE .. A BLACK WOMAN CAN MAKE A MAN FEEL LIKE HE IS THE STRONGEST AND MOST POWERFUL PERSON IN THE WORD,,,(REALISTICALLY THOUGH NOT BASED ON BABY TALK AND PASSIVITY.. I.E BULLSHIT)

    Only black people don’t, I guess from all the dumb azz fake outrage over “wanting to” do something that blacks do daily. Next

  • lovelygamour

    the sister in law of the white woman who accused emit till blurted out that she thinks she just didn't want to be in the store anymore. like the woman called her husband on emit till cause she thought he would stop making her work the store. but once she saw how heated her husband was becoming she should've calmed him down.

  • lovelygamour

    I am so upset I missed him and martins show. it was just on at a bad time.

  • Reenaface

    I never saw their show together. But I do miss Kelsey Grammer's show ''Boss" that used to come on HBO. Sanaa Lathan joined the cast right before they cancelled it. The show was loosely based on a corrupt politician in Chicago. I remember that's when I first saw Rotimi from Power on that show and caught a crush because he did a lot of sex scenes with his but exposed.? .I wish like ' oh my'.???

  • Reenaface

    The movie Rosewood was hard enough to watch. But isn't that situation similar to the Tulsa Oklahoma riots in the 1920's when a thriving black community was burned to the ground based on an accusation of rape by a black man. Decades later all the survivors got was an apology and a plaque engraving about what happened. I remembered when Jet magazine at the time covered the story. Those people should have gotten compensated for their losses.

  • Pebbles

    The problem is the moment he found out that his friend was brutally rapped ... who asks what color a rapist is? If he was white would his opinion be the same? What about any other nationality!!

    but she says some black guy! Now! He ready to go harm an innocent person

    I’m going to play the devils advocate;

    A black man did it! hmmmmm

    Let’s say : he walked around looking for a fight to harm a black persons but HE ends up getting harmed or killed or he kills an innocent person based on what his friend says but come to find out his Friend lied to cover up for having extra curricular activities & the husband finds out and she/ he came up with that quick lie.

    ( not saying it’s her situation but it happens in Nowhere USA all the time)

    We have to get alll the facts

  • TeeJay

    He was one of my favorite actors. Now, i'll be damned if I watch another movie that shows his face. You're not going to hate me and live off my money.

  • dontgetblocked

    I support his policies which benefit me. I'm always looking out for ME! Furthermore, I wouldn't be laid up with him or invite him home for dinner. I minimize my personal contact with whitey. Try to learn something. Separate business from personal just like they do. GTFOOH. Emotions will keep you broke.

  • Dun Dilly

    ANNND...how's he gonna find the black rapist...unless he went out in drag!

  • the guest

    They used the false rape as an excuse to exact their larger racist motive of derailing, disenfranchising, and defuncting Rosewood as an independent self sustaining successful black community.

  • Cannelle

    That's because aside from embracing white supremacy, Americans as a collective are strident Europhiles. They love anything European, even if it's trashy. As soon as most of the Euros step foot in the USA, Americans fawn over them. It's bizarre, when most of us go to Europe, we are generally looked down upon. Since living here, I've encountered plenty of racism, anti-Americanism and Anglophobia. Now if I were in Afghanistan, Central America, Iraw, OK...but...western Europe?

    So white Euros need to get get deported from the USA just like the rest. Their respective countries would deport us with a quickness.

  • yvette46

    Actually I feel the same way Every time I see a white person I want to beat the shit out of them too.. Go figure!!

    I had to turn my fan on...GEEEEESH??????

  • Rent em Spoons ?????????

    I”ll do you one better . I wonder if he would have had that same energy if she waqd rapped by a white person. I wonder if he would have randomly ran up on any white person he saw .

  • TheOwley

    Obviously wanting to kill someone's just that, a hyperbole of actually doing it. I rather let the law work it, but a good ass kicking is always appropriate.

  • hottlanta

    He would have not felt like that if another white person did it bcas it would be like looking in the mirror at himself raping her. So he is not gonna beat himself up.

  • Guess Who

    I don't understand why folks - black ones, specifically - would be shocked by this, lol.

    Listen, yall see white folks in movies being sexual with blacks OR sucking/flucking black puss/peen in real life and even having hybrids....and then think, "Well such and such can't be racists! Look, they have black kids and a black____!"

    0_o GROW UP and DEAL IN AND WITH REALITY.

    They are ALL like that...it's just IN THEM to destroy, hate, be deceitful and kill black folks. THEY DON'T LIKE US. ACCEPT it and stop feigning outrage every time ONE SHOWS YOU WHO YOU ALREADY KNOW WHO THEY REALLY ARE. No matter how much black they put inside of them....they still think blacks are inferior. KNOW THAT and ACCEPT IT.

  • shauna

    This did happen 40 years ago when he was in his 20's so I'll just chalk it up to him being young and stupid. People can grow and change and hopefully he doesn't have the mindset of an Irish street thug these days.

    Now I suppose I'm the only one who actually knows what a cosh is because God knows Sandra ain't got a clue in heaven.

  • Parent

    So he wanted to kill all black men cause his friend got raped by one. You are an idiot sir.

  • DroneRivers

    Different people will find different things important.
    As far as Blacks fighting for Mexicans to come here, never heard anything about that. If you're referring to people opposing "the wall", that has more to do with trump being a bigot and much less to do with protecting Mexicans. The man clearly hates black and brown people. And we're not ok with that. At least we shouldn't be. Cuz first it's them, next it's us. Simple as that. Department of Justice sued his ass way back in the 70's for a reason. His bigotry is nothing new.

    And Black on Black crime is never going away. Just like White on White crime will never go away. But to say we don't care or worry about it when we live it everyday is just silly. Could our crime numbers be lower? Absolutely. That's where voting the right people into office comes into play.
    At the end of the day, racism plays a part in both issues you brought up. So back to Liam Neeson...

  • YellowSauce

    I'm not sure what he meant I just cringe that he said it ...and for me it leaves more questions because a rape victim just says she was raped and gives specific details to the police but explaining to your friends what color the guy was seems to be for the reason of provoking racial tension which by the way it did ....

  • hottlanta

    Would u feel like that if u wasnt in a relationship with a black man. I liked how u threw the child in there as a bonus. U didnt have 2 do all of that 2 prove u didnt feel like that. Some of the racist people l know have hlack mates n kids. U can marry black n have kids but u still gonna live your white lifestyle. White privilège aint going nowhere n u aint gonna tell nobody not 2 treat u different bcas u r white.

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    So the Wall means bigot or does it mean keeping drugs and illegals out of the country

  • Guess Who

    I personally don't give a shit how many black peens you've svcked and fvcked....past or present. You're all the same....and you know this. Miss me with your "love sees no color"/ Rainbow Coalition rhetoric. Such a cliche from your kind when you try to prove you're not racist or you don't see color LOL.FOH

  • Alley

    Sounds to me like your the racist one may you be blessed

  • Alley

    I will be the first to admit I am treated differently I explain tht to my child all the time so he knows tht he already has a strike in society because of the color of his skin it is truly sad and I worry about both my mate and my son all the time I especially worry even more about my son because he is still learning how hard it is. The reason I threw I stated their color in the previous post was because guess who addressed people in interracial relationships with “hybrid” children. I’m just saying was the Liam wrong he!! Yes he was are there a lot of racist whites ansolutely will my child’s and my husbands harder then mine yes absolutely but tht does not mean I am racist because of these things just because of the color of my skin

  • takenaback

    I don't know about you all but I think Liam has lost his mind or is trying to sabatage the film.
