They removed To Kill a Mockingbird from the required reading list because the n-word was in it and was written by a white woman.

According to the Left, a white woman can never use that word under any circumstances nor fully understand the “lived experiences” of a black person so cannot write about them.

This is absolute intellectual segregation.

This is ridiculous.

To Kill a Mockingbird was published largely because Harper Lee was a white person.  It would have been unlikely that a black author from the South could have found a publisher and retalier in 1960.

Moreover, To Kill a Mockingbird helped galvanize attitudes towards the Civil Rights Movement.  It was highly influential and was one of the most important books written in the 20ty century.  Literally a book white people could read and empathize with a black character and the situation in the South.

It was to the Civil Rights Movement what Uncle Tom’s Cabin was to the Abolitionist Movement of the 19th century.

Of course, for these people it’s always Year Zero.  

So the significance of To Kill a Mockingbird must be eliminated and all that must be taught is that a white woman went outside of her lane and wrote about black experiences and used the n-word, therefore it’s racist and kids shouldn’t read it.

The anti-historical evil of this cannot be overstated.

These people are as destructive as the Red Guard who purged China’s pre-Mao history or the Taliban who wiped out Afghanistan’s pre-Islamic history.

This evil must be stopped.  Do not let it take root in your schools.

  1. When I was in grade school the 90s it was so important to them they literally gave us the copies after our required reading was done. Every student in my school district we were just given the book. I still have that copy.

  2. Meanwhile, downgrading a book the Left approves of from required reading to suggested reading constitutes a “ban” or something.
    War is peace… you know the rest.

  3. “According to the Left, a white woman can never use that word under any circumstances nor fully understand the “lived experiences” of a black person so cannot write about them.”

    Yet, somehow a black man can play Hamilton, and that is celebrated.

  4. Great story & movie.

    I just read that a TN school has banned “Maus”, supposedly at the insistence of conservatives. Too bad either way. A great way to illustrate the
    Holocaust to children.

    1. The Maus thing is being near-universally reported as a “ban”, but it appears (from what little I can find that isn’t straight-up hysteria and groupthink) that it’s a case of the book being removed from the mandatory-reading list. Not mandatory = banned, nowadays.

      1. I also wonder if it’s because of the “triggering” presence of swastikas and similar imagery in that book.
