The latest politically correct attempt to feign offense over The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (which unleashes Mark Twain’s piercing wit and bitter criticism of society) is currently smoldering in North Richland Hills, Texas.
Ibr–ahim Moh–amed, a 17-year-old junior at Richland High School, claims that his teacher’s reluctance to replace the hateful word “nig-ger” on the blackboard with the “N—Word” was “cruel” and demonstrated “bad judgment.” Moh–amed was the only black student in his class. He has since been transferred to a different English class with another teacher.
Huckleberry Finn and “Mus-lim” Jim
Moh–amed’s mother (who has never read the entire text) has aligned with local black and Mus–lim leaders and claims to be outraged, too.
The mother, Ton–ya Moh–amed, wants Huck Finn banned. She also thinks teachers should have to undergo sensitivity training in order to present touchy issues. Backed by the Coa-lition to Stop the N—word, the Moh–ameds also want a written apology from the teacher. Apparently, teaching students to think critically by examining uncomfortable history fails the PC test of self-esteem. Perhaps encouraging students to feel like victims is more worthwhile.
Yea. We gotcher apology right here Mrs. (I never even read the book) Muuuuuhamad.
This is your future in Muzlim Kvetchville:
Oh. G’day Sir and M’am. This is yer local Thought Police. Wer’e doing our daily rounds courtesy of the local Muzlim grievance council.
Have you had any intolerant, racist, pro Zionist or Izlamo-phobic insensitive thoughts today?
Just as we suspected..Come with us. NOW.
Since the whiner’s mum didn’t even bother to read the American classic let us fill her in shall we.
Twain’s very apparent purpose was to actually promote equality by showing that humanity and inhumanity know no racial boundaries. Guess that message escaped lil Ib-rahim and mum too eh.
Who are they to censor his message and to deny that purpose.
Are they not interested in “equality” after all?..Hmmmmmmmm.
Al and Jess and all the other full time race baiters have been attacking Huck Finn and Samuel Clemens for decades because of the “N” word, but ya don’t find them censorsing Snoooooop Dog now do ya.
F.Y.I. Mrs. Muuuuhamad, Mark Twain was opposed to slavery as well as Jim Crow ,which (if you had takent the time to read it) was the entire point of the book.
But of course if the Muuhamad clan cared one lick bout the principles they espouse, they would be demanding that all blacks and Muzlims read the book, not ban it.
Funny how Muzlims never get “offended” when the likes of Chavez, Eichmandinejeehad, Vicente Fox, or Calderon insult and threaten our country and President. No demands for apologies there. No. no.
Or how bout when Christian parents beg the school’s advisors to limit sexual content,offensive language, or gratuitous violence from the reading curiculum. They get shrieked at… “First Amendment”, “First Amendment”, “First Amendment” by the PC do gooders.
While the black community and Hollywood are busy celebratin mysogynistic black rappers who use the word “n*gg*r” incessantly, I think academics should be able to justify teaching Mark Twain in the classroom dontcha think.
Somebody tell this thin-skinned Muzlim kvetcher and his mum to take a chill pill. No, on second thought, make that a case.
