Racists Outraged That Mafia III Allows Players to Kill Klansmen
Mafia III involves players going up against the Klan and now online racists are upset.
Mafia III involves players going up against the Klan and now online racists are upset.
During its long history and many incarnations; the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) has been one of the most infamous terrorist groups in American history. The group is so hated that many gamers were excited when it was revealed that part of Mafia III involves going up against the Klan.
It should also be no surprise that bigots and white supremacists would also be offended by such a moment. While the majority of gamers have expressed their interest in wanting to slaughter a Klan rally, the typical online racists have spoken out against Mafia III.
Below are examples of the typical racists being outraged or crying about political correctness (Note: names have been redacted to avoid witch hunts, doxing and other online harassment).
Such comments could be found on the social media page of video game sites that wrote an article about the mission.
The most common complain was how the mission is promoting political correctness by making it acceptable to kill white people. Others wished the mission allowed them to kill members of Black Lives Matter and Black Panthers.
Of course, the most common response to these comments was the racist being called an idiot.
This is not the first time the Klan has been featured as a villain in a video game as the they have also been included in XIII and Manhunt. It should also be noted that the mission is very similar to the movie Brotherhood of Death, a 1976 blaxploitation about a group of ex-Green Berets returning to their hometown to fight the Klan.
Mafia III is the third game in the iconic open-world crime series and it’s set to be released on October 7 for all major consoles along with the PC.

I bet most of these butt hurt racists are #GamerGate supporters who are fat virgin losers that masturbate to pictures of Milo.
Actually for the most part Gamergate doesn’t care. It’s no different than killing nazi’s.
Are you a gamergate nerd who just started a post with “actually” cause that’s funny as shit
Actually it’s about ethics in video games journalism *tips fedora*
Does your generalizing mean I can call you a beta cuck who can only get off when his mistress allows him to?
The irony of these #gamergate types using terms like ‘cuck’ and ‘mistress’ is that it is highly likely that their only contact with a woman, is them standing to attention when their mother shouts down the basement…’Oi dickhead. Get up here. your dinner is ready! >:( ‘
lmao “beta cuck”
wow, your life must be sad as fuck.
Wow lmao this is funny. I never said I was #gamergate, I don’t even play videogames, they’re far too childish for my tastes. I was simply pointing out the fact that the statement I replied to was, in fact, generalizing. I really don’t see how my response instantly rules out any sexual relationship for me. Also I’m gay, so yes, I don’t often touch women.
Interesting the bullying dished out without cause against Gamer Gate. The article had no relation to them. Or should I say, US. I’M gamer gate. I’m a gamer who is sick of being shit upon because of my hobby. I’m also a feminist activist, civil rights activist and disabled rights activist.
Gamers have been pointing out the collusion between gaming media and games developers for years. That media then got together an dismissed all their critics as sexist, racist, basement dwelling nerds.
And when women gamers, non white gamers, gay gamers, and home owning gamers stepped up to be counted… They too were dismissed out of hand by the media.
And the mainstream media just backed up their gaming media cousins because, hey, who needs context? One side called the other sexist, so they must be the good guys. This even crossed over to the right wing gutter press. Brietbart didn’t jump in defending gamer gate because they agreed with the outrage over collusion. The gaming media cabal had declared someone sexist and racist… so Brietbart and the other fascist fuckwits just jumped in declaring feminist attacks and so on. Ignoring the vast majority of Gamers and Gamer Gaters being feminist too.
So wrapping this up. I’m a gamer gater. And a proud Nerd. And I’m looking forward to blasting KKK pointy heads off with a shotgun come release day. And before that? I’ve got a few marches to go on defending equality.
So take your one dimensional, judgemental bullshit, sit in a quiet corner and play with it. Let the human beings talk.
I’ve been with GamerGate since day 1, and I’ve never heard of the “mistress” bullshit. I know that the “cuck” shite is from /pol/ and people started using it ironically outside of /pol/ but then idiots started to misusing it and, well, here we are, someone is calling another dude a “beta cuck” when it was meant to be ironic.
Spot on! LOL 😀
nah but you are trying really hard
That’s literally my bi friend, GamerGater and attracted to Milo >_>
Anyway, #Gamergate had discussed the scene, and they don’t care. Why would they? It’s fantasy.
One person had complained about it on /r/KotakuInAction, and he was banned. Gamergate told him to fuck off for trying to make trouble out of nothing
When resident evil 4 came out there was nooooo issue
This is weird because he kills a lot of white people in the mafia who are not klansmen in the video game. The only difference is that this protagonist is a black man in Mafia III. I’d like to know anyone’s perspective if you have one to share.
But lets not forget resident evil 5. Nobody was complaining right?
lol you right. But it was such a good damn game despite.
Actualyl people DID complain. Like a LOT. There was multiple articles about people up in arms about Chris Redfield shooting african citizens.
Yeah, I remember people complaining big time when it released.
Well as a black man myself…I don’t see anything wrong with it. They are fuckin modern day nazis dam near, and yall love killing Nazis in any other game right? Lol Now before the racists start screaming at me hear me out. You have a point….the protagonist is black, there’s your ex-factor right there. Think about it guys, how many video games have I played as a white man killing “thugs” aka black gangsters and nobody bats an eye?
There’s nothing wrong with it, the people shown are just pointing out that there would be outrage if there was a game where you attacked black panther members and black lives matters “protesters”, which would be a racial “balance”. The problem is that the media has drawn attention to this specific part of the game and highlighted it as a good game. I mean, can you honestly think of a game where it’s a white guy killing ONLY black gangsters, or a situation where a white man killing an all black group has been called a good thing by media sites?
Grand Theft Auto San Adreas the main player is a black guy killing white men and women
My grand-daddy was one of the brave men of the 101st Airborne who had to protect the Little Rock Nine. So it feels good to play a game that allows me to kill these hillbilly terrorists and all these y’allQeda supporters need to STFU!
Let’s ignore the fact that white people have been “befriending”, back-stabbing, lying, raping, exploiting, shooting, and stealing from countries they’ve invaded for the past few hundred of years right?
That has literally no connection to this article. Also the game
how does it not?’
the gamer the gamer developer at least have knowledge… and that knowledge translates through and into their work…
it is like saying “I do not see color”….when literally ya do…smh
Brandon, I’ll respond when I can actually make sense of what you’re saying. Not because you’re black, but because you are stupid.
Oh yeah totally… 😉
How is that relevant you dick riding cum guzzling faggot
[insert generalistic internet insults befitting of a simpleton]
I feel like their post was completely irrelevant too, yet I find your comment to be more abhorrent.
Race is stupid. Kill everyone #nolivesmatter
It’s so funny how they are comparing KKK to BLM. I don’t remember BLM activists burning white people’s houses just because a white person lived there, or killing someone based on the color of their skin. KKK on the other hand…
That’s because the media covers it up when they do #openyoureyes
how delusional can you be…?
a lot of delusion huh?
nobody has video….lol
You must be from a parallel world in which this kind off delusion is common and people like you are considered well grounded intellectuals However, in this parallel universe you happen to get mistakenly transported to, that shit does not fly.
Tell us more about the chemtrails and UFOs while you’re at it.
I see you made a comment earlier William, calling someone stupid.
Reading this I find that highly ironic.
You don’t remember BLM rioting, destroying stores, looting, and beating a white man in a parking garage? It happened last week, genius, but “you don’t remember”.
The beating of that white man was an incident that had nothing to do with BLM. It happened in Engeland. You see that’s how white media works. And I don’t condone destroying anyones property BUT this was in reaction to the murders of innocent black people by (white) cops. The KKK has murdered black people just for being black. That’s something neither Black Panthers or BLM has done, nog matter how hard white media tries to spin it…
Come talk to me when BLM and the Black Panthers lynch white people for being white, and bomb churches with white children inside, or burn down the homes of white people who moved into black neighborhoods.
Afraid you’re mistaken. The rioting and destroying of property that happened last week was done by white people unrelated to BLM. In response to Tennessee winning over Florida.
BLM has come out in support of unarmed whites who were shot by cops as well.
Looters are looters. They are idiots and animals in search of release. Without them, we would never have been blessed by Sublime.
Okay, just to clarify, are we talking about this?
Because, yes this is a protest. No, this is not about football. No this is not in England, though it is a British news site so you can be forgiven for making the mistake. But even if what you said is true, AKA OJII, why would it matter that it’s in England? America doesn’t own the BLM movement, and there are a lot of black people in England. Plus the fact that you say this was a response. A response? You call destroying property and attacking unrelated people a response like it justifies it, even if only a little bit. Martin Luther King Jr, the most well known black rights figure EVER, was so successful because he practiced PEACEFUL protest. He decided to be the bigger man, he took the higher ground, and I doubt he would be okay with some of the “responses” protesters have committed.
Same with the black Panthers I want to slap a white person when they say they are a terrorist group……like show me when they EVER hung a white person or beat a white person to death
Hmm let’s see, something you might have forgotten?
Here is another you following piece of shit. You know nothing about your fucking “groups” and are just following because of your race.
As for the game cool whatever kill kkk why not it is a video game. As for the write of this article he is completely out of line to call those comments “racist” as one guy mentioned if it was the other way around all hell would break loose. Which is fucking true. He was not even being racist just stating a fact. Think this so called writer needs to look up racism because 95% of these comments are racist towards whites and no just because your a minority doesn’t fucking mean you can not be racist. Get your head out of your fucking ass
Lmao, he asks for proof the Black Panthers are equivalent to the KKK who murdered thousands and you post stories about people who aren’t Black Panthers saying mean things about whites. Pathetic and typical. You’re all liars. The Black Panther Party for Self Defense never hunted down whites, though if they had it would have been mere tit for tat.
Well they do and glorify it on thier support pages fuck those racist niggers let them try that on me and i will show how much their lives really matter lol
I would love to where you at cracker
You are a garbage person who knows nothing of the Black Panthers. Go back to furiously masturbating to pictures of your dad.
“New Black Panthers” circa 2000’s and the “Black Panther Party for Self Defence” Circa 1960’s are not the same group.
Where you at I’ll meet you anywhereFucking KeiblerI need to hang your whole goddamn family peckerwoodYou can catch me anywhere I gave my address book
Holy shit, they’re just proving your point, look at these replies. Three of five want to fight you haha!
And the truth comes out
Exactly! No comparison
As a troll I love to say fucked up shit all the time just to annoy SJW’s and the weak but I would never defend the Klan.
Do you even care about this country?
Why is your existence so frustrating?
When BLM or Black Panthers has the same history of killing and violence that the kkk does, only then will this faux outrage be anything but hilarious. LoL
Nazis are killed in FPS games a lot, so where is the outrage over that… unless it’s just because it’s a black character killing kkk that there’s outrage?
I’m planning on buying the game…
…just to be a POC, killing kkk (͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
When the protagonist of the game is white, is there a limit to how many black ppl he can kill ? Klan needs to be happy it’s just a game. Might be forsight (sp)
Lol, i like how they were comparing the black Panthers to the kKK. Black panthers essentially started as neighborhood watch because black folk didn’t want to call a police station that was riddled with clansmen. Not to mention they fed their neighborhoods. Truck loads upon truck loads of food. Provided daycare for their neighborhoods. Like….they didn’t go around lynching white folks. And they welcome all creeds into their cause.
How can you even compare the two.
Yeah and the KKK began out as a group to discuss topics after the war between the states. Guess that means they are good people just like the Black Panthers according to your logic.
when did it become cool to defend the Klan? you racist babies. Comparing BLM to KKK is stupid. You white losers are just lucky black people want equality and not revenge. Go kill yourselves, racists.
All in all yall are all dumb as fuck cause in the end the government doesnt give a fuck what race you are they are out to kill all you dumb motherfuckers while you act like you know anything about anything and i think all of you deserve to be kill by any race but your own nust for being that stupid
bawhahahahahahaha Lets see, the Klan who hate all people other then white straight Catholics who put men about women vs BLM people who not only protest the killing of black people but white people as well and stand with the Native Americans against the Dakota pipe line, hmmmmmm whats the difference, I dont see any………. I cant type this with out laughing at those comments……….
I agree with you but the KKK also hated Catholics actually, the KKK was for White Anglo Saxon Protestants only. They hated non-racist whites, blacks, immigrants of all stripes, Catholics, Jews, LGBTQ, Native Americans, and Yankees. But overall I agree with your comment.
I am going to buy the HELL out of this game!
Also, kudos to the article’s writer for calling the KKK a terrorist group. Since that’s what they are.
The KKK is somehow beyond reproach?? There’s games/media where every group hou can name were cannon fodder for the user but somehow the KKK should get a pass? If you think that you’re either racist, dumb as hell, or ignorantly commenting some shit.. go away, read a book.
Why do people compare BLM to the KKK, or even the Black Panthers. It has no organization. Anyone can claim to be a part of it. I could go out tomorrow and shoot someone and say it was for BLM and nobody would be able to prove it wasn’t true.
On a completely different note: anyone else think that the article not redacting the profile photos kind of undermined the point of redacting the names?
Lol good point haha!
the mafia actually went after the klan. its historical to an extent. im sure somebody already said that though
I dont understand how BLM can be compared to the KKK
Or plack panthers im not saying this cause im black but those are both groups that stand and protest to be equal
And the KKK stand for elimination of the black man…. What panther hung a white boy for his family to see ?
Entire story written on the strength of a single thread of facebook comments.
Welcome to 2016.
While I have no problem killing Klansman, I think it’s kind of unfair to paint ALL of the people who have a problem w/ that scene in the game, esp. in the screencap, as “just racists.” I think some of them are just so “anti-PC” that they’ve WAAY gone off the deep end and can’t see why killing Klansman might be a good thing, or at least benign and nothing to get upset over. In all fairness, though, can we NOT use the term “racist” *every other day* like it’s going out of style, ffs??
“Racist” this, “racist” that, EVERYONE’S A RACIST (particularly if they’re white)
The bottom comment, however, is pretty-clearly racist. I mean, how in the world is the KKK, “the good guys”??? o.o
kkk canb go fuck off from this place. yea i see ya you fucks
Well thanks to this, I’m not going to buy this game.
(Oh man, you got 10 whole comments to make a “story” out of this. Really that mission is the only thing I’ve been looking forward to, just for being different. The game itself it’s fuckin’ terrible)
