I like the idea of mass claim punishers. Or punishing people claiming for no reason.
it can work with your flavour too. so in superhero mafia if you nameclaim you're vulnerable to your real identity being disocvered and your powers being stripped.
as for why massclaims work: it's because nearly every game is jammed full of power roles. (I'm as guilty as anyone) and that the meta is stagnant - the same roles go in most games in new combinations and you can work out what's in the set-up and who's lying or not with a massclaim really easily.
for famous racists mafia the racists would be the town, though. stupid if not. make a bunch of anti racist people as mafia, maybe an albino guy as your SK (just because albino's or something)
