People are outraged that Liam Neeson said he wanted to kill a black guy after his friend got raped, but they seem to be forgetting the redemption part of his story where he felt bad that he thought that after the fact, and isn't racist now (or for a long time)

I don't get that, do people think that once you are a racist there is no redemption?

no redemption


I personally think that there is nothing to redeem unless one acts on those racist instincts.

Having the odd racist "episode" or saying the odd racist word doesn't make you a racist. A racist would actively do these things on a regular bases or at least that's the way I see it.

Every situation is different

I think most people have to some extent racist thoughts from time to time, it comes down to whether or not you realize theyre usually wrong or decide to start embracing them

Everyone is racist. The difference is some people outwardly express it and anyone with sense keeps dumb thoughts like that to themselves. As minervo said it's just a 'look at them, not me!' thing.

no of course not. reformed racists are better, factually, than actual racists.

You heard it here, folks: Neeson's attitude wouldn't have been racist if the woman in the story hadn't complained about being raped.

Yep. Most of them aren't real, just cries for attention without a care for anyone else who gets burned in the process. We need to stop catering to these people. So what if this guy had a 'bad thought'? Oh yeah let's turn this into a crusade for some reason...

Racism is being used as a social tool to permenantly condemn and reject racists from society. If you forgive racists than they can never be replaced, and its always one particular group that gets targeted the most for accusations of racism and others get free pass from accusations as racism is prejudice plus power.

You cannot kill/attack what you have forgiven so its in social justice warriors best interests to never allow forgiveness because then they cannot justify their radical tactics to gain societal power, and then lose all ability to gain power as they have nothing else to offer society but promises to purge the wicked like the spanish inquisition.

No it's completely true. If anyone thinks they can make a quick buck at another's expense they won't hesitate. Be it a lawsuit or something trivial like rape and racism. These problems aren't real. The leeches of society seek out such things hoping to get rich quick. It's almost like patent trolling where the game is set in advance until they catch a sucker.

Then in the rare case there is a legit complaint, we don't believe them because of the majority who cried wolf beforehand. The fakers ruined it for everyone so I will believe 0% of them. Go away, be quiet, and find something else to do with your time. Try a job.
