Interesting Words - Rewriting Books

Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain is going to be republished, this time without the N word.

(Instead of the n word the word slave will be used, and the author, Twain scholar Alan Gribben, has also changed "injun" to "Indian".    Of course Huck Finn is a classic and so many people are up in arms. Seemingly many schools will no longer allow the book to be read because of the use of the ‘N’ word.  I guess it's a step up from book-burning.)
