What's Next? Banning All History?

A Virginia school district has moved to "temporarily ban" Huckleberry Finn and To Kill a Mockingbird over some of the language in the books. This "banning" comes after a parent complained her school-aged son, who is of mixed race, was traumatized by the racial slurs used in the books. 


I would like to see the kid's Iphone playlist. I bet is full of hip-hop and rap that contains harsher language than these two books.  The comments from the original article range from practical to funny. It is sad that we live in a society where it seems the majority of good folks are forced to make concessions for snowflakes such as this one. The article is predictable, bu the comments are worth reading. One comment read "Give him (kid) a razor blade and tell him to end it now. He (kid) will be nothing but a drain on society his entire life. Also, fire the entire school board".

  1. Let 'em ban all teaching of history. If there's no "history," there's no slaves. The "injustices" these people somehow continue to suffer at long-dead people will no longer have relevance...

    Game over...

    This is STUPID...

  2. Hey Irish;

    Huckleberry Finn, Tom Sawyer and to kill a mockingbird highlighted the bigotry of the time, people need to remember what it was like back then to see how far we have gone but the special snowflakes represent a new generation of people that wear their feelings on their sleeves and wil not be able to handle the rough and tumble of the world. btw thanks for bringing back the Babe headers :)

  3. They're in good company. I hear Castro banned Huck Finn in Cuba, too.
