A famous friend of mine from the Bronx once said, ya gotta hear both sides. And so as an Irish guy who often gets unjustly accused of being racist, I figured I am going to approach this case with an open mind. On the one hand you got this dude flat out admitting one time he wanted to go murder random black people in cold blood in an effort to exact revenge. I’ll admit, thats some pretty damning evidence. Gonna take a LOT to sway the jury. Not much else you can put on the other side of that scale thats gonna make this thing even out. BUT, as I said I’m an unbiased Irishman so if anyone is gonna make the case for Liam, let it be me.
Number 1 - He was Bryan Mills from Taken. That shit is fire. That counts. It just does. And he killed so many white people in that movie. And I get the distinct impression he would have saved all sorts of black girls had they been kidnapped as well.
Number 2 - Liam Neeson said he would have gonna on vengeful murder sprees for any race. Had his friend been raped by a Puerto Rican, he woulda murdered Puerto Ricans. Had she been raped by an Asian guy, he woulda gone on a rampage in Chinatown. I believe him, yo. I dunno why but I do. I think Liam Neeson is actually very NOT racist because he’s willing to murder anyone for revenge. Thats the opposite of discrimination, bubba.
Number 3 - He tongue kissed the fuck out of Viola Davis in his new movie. Laugh all you want but I think this is the best argument Liam can hope for. This is the one he’s gotta lean on HEAVY. Racists cant french kiss people from the race they hate. They cant do it. Its hard to kiss someone you dont have any chemistry with, let alone someone you deeply hate due to generational prejudice entrenched into your soul. No SHOT you can just chalk that up to “being an actor.” Liam Neeson aint Daniel Day Lewis out here. He couldnt overcome racism to have some on camera romance with Viola Davis. Not no way, not no how.
In conclusion, Liam Neeson makes fire movies, says that he was willing to murder Hispanics and Asians too, and kisses black girls. I’m not saying that this is a slam dunk case. I’m not saying this outweighs the “One time I had a thirst to murder blacks for revenge.” But I am saying its just something to think about.
