For the 21st premiere of South Park, the Comedy Central series is going straight into it: The episode will tackle white supremacists and the Charlottesville, Virginia, violence, which left one counter-protester dead last month.

The description: “Protestors armed with tiki torches and Confederate flags take to the streets of South Park; Randy comes to grips with what it means to be white in today’s society.” The title is “White People Renovating Houses,” which suggests a riff on gentrification.

In a preview clip, below, an angry mob marches chanting “you will not replace us!” and one holds a sign accusing tech companies of taking their jobs.

In August, white nationalists, white supremacists, and the KKK marched in Charlottesville — with many protesters chanting “Jews will not replace us” and other anti-Semitic slogans.

South Park returns Wednesday, Sept. 13 at 10 p.m.
