Liam Neeson stunned the world yesterday when he admitted that he set out to murder innocent black people after a friend alleged that she had been raped by a random black man.
Today, he made his way to ‘Good Morning America’ to explain himself.
White men have been raping, pillaging, enslaving, jailing, attacking my community for hundreds of years.

Neeson admits that he set out into predominantly black areas to harm its resident and sought help for what he now recognises is a problem.
It was a primal hatred.
Liam Neeson’s story says a lot about our society. That many rushed to defend him, or contextualize his comments, is revealing. That that empathy wasn’t immediately extended to the woman who suffered, nor the men of color who would suffer, but to a white mans feelings says it all.
