Huckleberry Finn

A school in Philadelphia recently expelled the Mark Twain novel Huckleberry Finn from its classroom curriculum, because the book includes the use of the “N” word.

The Friends’ Central School removed the Mark Twain classic from the 11th-grade American literature class last week because students said it made them feel ‘uncomfortable’.

The Daily Sheeple reports:

Of course, the book is poignantly ahead of its time in its critique of slavery, and depicts a boy who befriends a slave and goes through many difficulties to help him reach freedom…

But the truth stopped mattering a long time ago in politically correct America.

As the NY Post reported, “The Politically Correct Crowd Just Got a Great American Novel Banned“:

A suburban Philadelphia school expelled “Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” from its curriculum over the book’s overuse of the N-word.

The Friends’ Central School removed the Mark Twain classic from the 11th-grade American literature class last week after students said it made them feel uncomfortable, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported.

“We have all come to the conclusion that the community costs of reading this book in 11th grade outweigh the literary benefits,” principal Art Hall said in a letter to parents.

Hall said students were challenged by the use of the racial slur, and felt the school was not being inclusive enough…

Yes. Because not being “inclusive” by “challenging” students with reality is bad. Because we mustn’t hurt anyone’s feelings ever, all students must have a censored version of history spoonfed to them.
