Neeson is demonstrating that you can admit to having had racist thoughts or ideas, but to be able to reflect and challenge your own prejudices is an encouragable trait.
I don't think Neeson is demonstrating that. His story, assuming there is any truth in it, details the actions of a temporarily angry man. Angry folk can lose the ability to act rationally and can sometimes result in non-racist folk engaging in some short term emotion-charged racist thoughts/actions. Unconvincing in terms of any debate which may need to be had.
I don't think we are completely disagreeing. Racism and prejudice is irrational. The unacceptable actions or behaviour that come of out irrational prejudice are emotionally driven. Talking about these issues and reflecting in the cold light of day is a healthy mechanism that can promote change. It can create a space between the emotion and the behaviour, perhaps causing an individual to pause and think a bit further before acting.

Yeah fair enough Dave. I agree with your overall point. I'm just not convinced that this specific case with Neeson adds value. Maybe if I thought his story was true it may be different.
It is a man's own mind, not his enemy or foe, that lures him to evil ways.

It's a conversation starter if nothing else. Sure look you get to educate a few racist nordies [emoji3]

Neeson is a spoofer Shan. He miscalculated and it backfired. Then he played the NI MOPE card talking balls about knowing hunger strikers etc.. to row back. Sure anyone living in NI probably knows and lives within 100m of a paramilitary weekend warrior, like rats really.
Neeson prowling South Kensington with a cosh in his pocket is risible tbh.

It's called Derry in the same way Carrickfergus is called Carrick. People who call in Londonderry in casual conversation are trying to make a political point, knobs.

By that logic it should be Fergus? Derry is used as much as a political statement as Londonderry Jackie. Lets not get all snowflake about this. On a sign at the turnoff to Draperstown on the Dungiven road, someones sprayed out Derry, to leave London in the roadsign. :lol: :lol: :lol: its all about perception..

The people who say Londonderry are men on facebook with flags as their profile pic, also obsessed with Brexit. I've yet to meet a derry prod who doesn't say they are from Derry. It's the people who live nowhere near the place who make it an issue. What do they call their rugby team again?
