Has anyone read or heard about publishers editing Mark Twain’s Huckleberry Finn by omitting the “N Word” changing the derogatory slang to Slaves? The reason being that because the novel is on so many school’s banned books list that this change will allow more students to read it. I understand that the saying puts us back several generations, but yet it is still a word that is used today. This saying also stands as a testament to what was suitable at that time and a marking of history. Even though I have never read Huckleberry Finn I find it wrong to change an author’s work, and certainly not a classic such as this.
