In another example of political correctness run amok in the Obama era, a Virginia school system has pulled classic works of literature that contain the word “nigger” within the text. The move is the latest ridiculous overreaction to the election of Donald Trump as president as well as years of indoctrination by the zealots in the Obama regime and their media lackeys to erase history and replace it with a version to their liking.
The Accomack County public schools has yanked Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird and Mark Twain’s The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn from libraries after receiving complaints from the parent of a fragile snowflake that the language was racist in nature.
As reported by the Daily Caller “Schools Pull ‘To Kill A Mockingbird’ From Shelves Over N-Word”:
A public school system is temporarily removing two classic novels from bookshelves over their use of racial slurs after a parent complained at a school board meeting.
Accomack County Public Schools in Virginia pulled “To Kill a Mockingbird” and “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” from the curricula, classrooms and libraries in the school system due to the complaint. Superintendent Chris Holland said the books will remain banned throughout Accomack County schools until a committee reviews the parent’s complaint and makes a recommendation on how to proceed to the superintendent, reports NBC4.
“It’s not right to put that in a book, let alone read that to a child,” Victoria Coombs, a mother of two in Accomack County, told WAVY.
The parent who complained said she has a biracial son who found a page with a number of racial slurs difficult to read. Some other parents said they agreed with the unidentified parent’s sentiment. Racial slurs crop up 48 times in “To Kill a Mockingbird” and 219 times in “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn,” according to WJLA.
What’s next, burning the books? The forced diversity movement in this country has reached a tipping point and is spilling over into a fanaticism similar to the Khmer Rouge and at some point someone in a position of influence needs to say enough is enough and reverse the downward trajectory of this once great country. For God’s sake, these are classic works of literature that have been mandatory reading in classrooms for freaking decades, shame on the Accomack County school system officials for their cowardly cave in to one whiner with shitty parenting skills.
