West Coast hardcore collective Regional Justice Center have released a new track titled "KKK Tattoo." Produced by Taylor Young (of Nails) and available through Closed Casket Activities as a standalone 7" single, the song can be heard below. RJC mastermind Ian Shelton had this to say about the single: "When I was 12 years old I met my biological father for the first time. I was quick to realize he had a tattoo of a Klansman on his inner bicep. It was cartoony; a stubby little man in ill-fitting robes stumbling with nooses, scythes, and other tools of death. Over the years he was in my life, the closest thing I ever got to an answer about it was that he got it 'to scare Mexicans'. I haven't spoken with him in almost 10 years but I've constantly gotten stuck on how easily I could have turned out the same as him. For those of us who are white, dismantling white supremacy isn't only an external glance; you have to acknowledge first and foremost [that] it could be you."
