Liam Neeson explains remark about wanting to kill black man


Liam Neeson insisted he’s not racist Tuesday, a day after an interview revealed he once sought to kill a black man to avenge the rape of a friend. “I’m not racist,” he said on “Good Morning America.” “This was nearly 40 years ago.” The actor revealed in an interview published by The Independent that he looked for a black man to kill after his friend was attacked. He made the admission while promoting his new movie, “Cold Pursuit,” about a father who seeks revenge after his son is killed.
