April 7, 2008 Mississippi Burning reaction paper Soc 223 Place yourself in the year 1964, where the color of your skin meant where  you can and can not eat food, sit on a bus, drink water, and even shop.  In the  movie Mississippi Burning , two FBI agents try to solve the murder of three civil  rights activists that were killed in Mississippi.   The three civil rights activists were killed when they were driving in a car  together down a desolate stretch of highway.  The three boys kept saying to keep  calm and that everything would be alright.  They were followed by multiple cars  and little did they know that the cars that were following them were members of  the Ku Klux Klan, also known as the KKK.  The car with the three activists pulled  over because one of the KKK cars had a police light, and they thought it really  was the police.  As soon as the KKK members walked up to the car, they began  to harass the three boys, and calling the two white boys “nigger lovers”.  All three  boys were killed that night by the KKK members.
