    Saw that yesterday. Simply retarded. Also saw that at least one Minneapolis school is pulling To Kill a Mockingbird from its school because the book contains racial slurs.

    The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn has already been washed clean from Twain's original version. Some schools don't even have kids read it.

    I just don't get it. Do they actually think they are doing the kids a favor by sheltering them from classic literature like this? It would be one thing if the plot of the movie was a slur, but it simple depicts the language used at the time, and the plot is of the black person actually being defended by a white guy. They should be celebrating this book. I just don't get it.

    Norm MacDonald had the perfect solution: just pretend Huck is black.

    The TV channel that airs the reruns of Tom and Jerry actually put a warning disclaimer before the shows come on. I'm serious. A "this might disturb some viewers" kinda disclaimer. Our country is in an unbelievable state right now.

    I have a feeling it is not just this country. The whole world is turning that way.

    Yeah, the UK is just as bad if not worse. Especially on immigration issues.
