Uddrag

Her giver vi dig en prøve på webbogens indhold:

Huckleberry Finn and the N-word debate
“Huckleberry Finn and the N-word debate” is a video from the CBS News show 60 minutes, published in 2011.

In the video, the anchor, Byron Pitts, interviews various people on the topic of the new edition of Adventures of Huckleberry Finn targeting schools that have removed the book from the curriculum because of Mark Twain’s use of an offensive word — ‘nigger’.

Byron Pitts states that Mark Twain’s book has been censored and banned ever since it was published and that the trend continues today. He discusses the new version of the book with Randall Williams, one of the owners of the publishing house that issued the revised version of Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. In this version, the word ‘nigger’ was replaced with the word ‘slave’.
