Mark Twain’s The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn with have the N word removed from it so schools will use it again.

I read about this form a couple cool places.

@avitable wrote about it.
CNN did a little article on it as well

I am just going to make this short and to the point.

Taking the N word out of books so it will be read in schools doesn’t solve the problem.

Our children should read those books as they were written, not as schools are comfortable with them.

In catering to a distinct minority or crying parents, the education of all our children in school is stunted by exposure to abridged material.


Idiots. There are kids in junior high school having sex, doing drugs, and carrying fucking guns.

…and the schools are taking the N word out of a classic.

Don’t get me wrong…the N word is incredibly offensive to me. But this isn’t some ignorant loudmouth with no tact mouthing of…this is a classic piece of literature.

This is like telling the Louvre that they have to cover up the bust of Mona Lisa because I was offended by her bosom…or forcing the Rodin Museum to put shorts on “The Thinker” because he isn’t wearing any clothes.

I don’t think I could ever read a sanitized piece of literature…its like taking the culture and feeling out of a work and leaving only a stick figure (if that sounds right.)
