Just This Once

You know, liberals can really piss me off. I'm all for fair and equal treatment of everyone, people with money giving back or having to pay taxes to support society, and plenty of other ideals that people would call liberal. It's the political correctness that can kill me. I see tweets from people that are outraged that Huckleberry Finn is being censored. It's one printing from one publishing house. Not every copy of the book ever. Chill the f*** out.

I don't think this is liberals - I feel more like this is southerners who want to wallpaper over (almost said "whitewash") their ugly history, a little bit at a time, and part of that is removing references to their casual use of racial epithets.

I think people overreact, but it is curious that the publishing house is called NewSouth. Quite the dog whistle-ish name.

I'm torn on how I feel about this. On the one hand, I think it's stupid. On the other hand, if it's the difference between teaching Huck Finn or not teaching, I'm willing to live with it.
