Racism in Mafia III
I'ts cool that your trying to convey the grim reality of racism in your game and not shy away it.

I especially like the part where the black protagonist's only 2 interactions in every shop and restaraunt is to rob the joint and kill the owner/patrons.

Or every police confrontation has to start with a shootout no matter the transgression.

It was also pretty eye opening to see the kkk and italian mafia work so candidly with each other,
I guess the kkk could look past the fact italians were not considered 'white' and were treated as second class citizens in the past. I'm sure kkk had no beef with catholics either.

Kudos on not supporting racial stereotypes and being historically accurate.

But not Kudos on their SJW message (before the campaign starts) insinuating the same ♥♥♥♥ is STILL happening on that wide of a scale today.

It seemed like the reason they included that message was to cover their asses if someone who was too thin-skinned to handle n-word decided to try and rag on the game for 'promoting racism'. So I don't really blame them.

Is that wide of a scale in public? Depends on where you live in this country I guess. I can assure you in some parts of the south, black people still can't look white people in the eye. But, when they have a keyboard, plenty of white guys across the entire USA are tough as hell.

Just look at any facebook post or youtube video involving black people and you'll see how stupid you are. Not to mention all the cops killing unarmed black guys. I don't give af what you have to say about it. I'm not even talking about the ones resisting (which doesn't = a death sentence), I'm talking about the ones that we have seen complying and STILL get killed by the pu c ♥♥♥ cops. But, even when they are running away, you can't shoot them in the back. You have white guys committing mass murder and getting arrested without a scratch on them.
People are racist. Cops are racist af. However, these days cops just aren't racist against black people. It's against poor people as well. Which is hilarious considering they are not by any means rich.

The MA supreme court just recently ruled that black people can legally run from the cops due to racial profiling. Freddy Grey is a great example. He wasn't breaking the law. He ran because he was scared because he knows a lot of cops are racist af. His so called crime was carrying a utility knife for work.

His punishment was having his spinal cord severed 80%. He was a mile away from the police department when they put him in the back of that van. It took 40 minutes to arrive. EVERY ONE OF THOSE COPS WAS ACQUITTED!! You wanna tell me it's not THAT widespread enough for you? That they acutally had that many jury's to only see it the cops way? WTF ever!!

I dare you to watch both of these videos and educate yourself.

What's funny about all of that is, statistics show that not only are less blacks killed than whites by police - less blacks are kill than hispanics as well. You never see whites or hispanics complaining. Not only that, but the number one cause of black gun murders is...wait for it...other black people. That is a fact - but nobody seems to care about the facts. It's not media worthy, and the world is dumb enough to listen to only what the media tells them.

You know what the media is not telling them? How a deaf mute man was shot dead by the police, unarmed, as he tried to perform SIGN LANGUAGE. Why didn't you hear about it? He was white. This kind of injustice happens to every race. Whites, blacks, hispanics, asians, middle eastern, etc. It's not exclusive to black people, and they're actually in the minority in that aspect.

So don't feed me your BLM crap. BLM at it's core is racist (yes, that's a thing, black people can be racist) - in in this day and age, black people are more priviledged than *any other race*.

Exactly.

I also like how they left out the fact that the black panthers in the 1960s used to MURDER Native Americans and set fire to their homes.

This is just revisionist history trying to make "whitey" look evil.I hope it fails fails fails

You don't need to revise history to make the treatment of black Americans during history look evil. You just need to look at your history books for that.
You need to realise that the need for and the existence of the civil rights movement in the US is something that is a landmark in history. Black Americans didn't enslave themselves or hang themselves from trees.

I'll pass on this game.......I'm tired of all the "Woe is me, white man the oppressor" crap in the media; I don't need it in a game.

And you want to know why so many black people murder ? Because where the ♥♥♥♥ is little africa ? You have little italy, little china, little korea, bla bla bla.. the black people ? They get the ghetto and no way out unless you're lucky as hell. I do agree with you as a whole, but come on there's a reason for it. It really goes both ways.
