I saw you video on how you disagreed that students should have to read books like Huckleberry Finn. The only reason you don’t like the book is because of one word. You think Mark Twain is a racist even though one of his later books is about a slave who proves a point by switching her baby with the plantation owner’s baby. You have some valid points about the “N” word and that it should not really be used in society. I think you are just trying to seek attention or something but here is my response’s.
You think that all the book is about is some kid and a runaway slave. You think that the kid is being racist towards all black people but you have to realize that this is a different time. In the 1800’s that was basically the term they used not necessarily as insult although it was but more as saying they are African American. You also have to realize that this is the point of view of a kid and he was brought up in a society were the y used that word regularly. Huck didn’t know any better he thought that was just what you said. He only said it as a reference to a black man not really as insult, but I can see how it would be taken as an insult. I don’t think that was how it was meant.
You don’t want your daughter reading the book, and she doesn’t want to read it because it makes her feel uncomfortable. Instead of reading Huck Finn your daughter read some other classical novel in the library alone. Probably because others just read the book and didn’t make such a big deal. Then when you find out she has to read alone you think she deserves some special attention. Everyone else read the book and got a teacher because they did their class requirements. Your daughter didn’t deserve a teacher because the school probably can’t afford to have extra teachers teaching kids who don’t do the class requirements. What makes you so special to get all these special privileges just think about it that way. O no my daughter doesn’t live in a perfect world because...
