School bans "To Kill a Mockingbird", "Huck Finn"
« on: June 21, 2020, 05:09:06 am »

Hmmn, "book burning"?

This is just weird.

Novels by Harper Lee and Mark Twain have been pulled from school syllabuses in Minnesota over fears their use of racial slurs will upset students.

The Duluth school district said it was removing To Kill a Mockingbird and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn from its curriculum because their content may make students feel “humiliated or marginalized”.
