Rewriting History

We all know the N-word is a bad word to say, but over 100 years ago the N-word was used on a daily basis. Now someone wants to rewrite one of the greatest books in history. The Adventures of huckleberry finn and To Kill a mockingbird have the N-word numerous times in these books. The whole reason that these books are great is, because they make it sound realistic since they used old fashioned words. It be like watching a play about the 17 century and the actors aren't wearing old fashioned clothing it's just silly. Rewriting history is wrong. If we censure the N-word what next. Censure any books that talks about slavery or racism. for the sake of education people should know that the N-word exists. We shouldn't try to forget parts of history just , because they aren't lovely rather embrace the fact that the event happen and learn from it. One of the greatest books like To kill a Mockingbird or Of Mice and Men have the N-word in them they are great, because they were very realistic, because the books talked about issue's that weren't yet discussed. Censuring history is silly in this case you get nothing in return, but teaching kids that they're is no such thing as the N-word. Ignorance isn't bliss when that ignorance is the ignorance of ignoring history and what it has to teach us.

  1. You seem fixated on keeping the n-word.

  2. "Rewriting History"? Now I think you're just being melodramatic. They changed a word in a novel, good lord, they didn't rewrite history. LMFAO.
