Fuck up the KKK in Mafia 3

Combat, baby

A lot of games have let us dispense of nazis with hot-leaded-justice, but what about groups that have since perpetuated the Nazi’s occult-lunacy-derived racial superiority? Sure, the KKK existed before the Nazis, but Mafia 3 is set in 1968, which is already third-wave Ku Klux Klan.

These are the folks that planted 15 sticks of dynamite at a black church in Bimingham, Alabama in 1963, killing 4 girls and injuring 22 others. They also kinda of got away with it. None of the four men responsible were even tried until one, Robert Chambliss, was tried and convicted in 1977, 14 years later. Another died before he could be charged, and the other two didn’t receive their life sentences until 2001 and 2002. After Y2K and everything!

They’re terrorists with really high opinions of themselves and, as you can see in the brief segment at 2 minutes into the video on Mafia 3‘s combat in general, you can fuck ’em up next week when Mafia 3 comes out.
