    #LiamNeeson, best known for his role as the ride-or-die, retired CIA operative in the ‘Taken’ series, is officially speaking his truth and opening up about his past urge to commit a hate crime. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
    ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
    In an interview with Independent to discuss his forthcoming film, ‘Cold Pursuit,’ in which he plays a driver who seeks revenge against dealers he thinks killed his son, the Ireland-born actor, who’s made a living off stories of revenge and vengeance, shared his own experiences with retributive justice. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
    ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
    “There’s something primal - God forbid you’ve ever had a member of your family hurt under criminal conditions,” Neeson explained when asked how ‘his latest character turns to anger.
    ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
    ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
    As he continued, he opened up about the experience that linked him to his character on a personal level - in which his violent impulses led him to seek retribution after a close friend was raped by a black man.

    ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
    “My immediate reaction was…I asked, did she know who it was? No…what color were they?

So that I could kill him.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
    ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
    “It took me a week, maybe a week and a half, to go through that. She would say, ‘Where are you going?’ And I would say, ‘I’m going out for a walk.’ You know? ‘What’s wrong?’ “No no, nothing’s wrong.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
    ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
    However, Neeson admitted that his thoughts were “horrible, horrible,” he said he was ashamed of his racist assumptions, but he it was all part of a more

    To be honest I think it would help if all white people spoke about their racist feelings but that would never ever happen

    He gonna get shot down a lot but again more white people should talk about their issues. It would have been better if he explained that if it had been a white person he probably wouldn't have gone lookin' for a cac to kill and then explain why

    In my personal life I don't. I meant from an entertainment perspective. I used to be a pretty big fan of Liam as an actor even though he plays the same character in every movie.

    Yea plus he old as fuck so this was way back when.

    Ppl grow and ppl change. I doubt he woulda shared that if he still had feelings like that. But at the same time he shoulda kept it to himself. Its too real for the masses.

    lol That's pretty much the point. I don't think anyone would begrudge him if he was just out there looking for the actual rapist.
