Many people regard William Shakespeare as one of the greatest English writers of all time, yet almost all of his plays have been prohibited from most schools. The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is also an exceptional composition, but is a hugely challenged book because of its use of the “n” word and its racial insults. Making it a rule that students cannot read these books in class deny them access to one of the best English writers, and one of the best books a person can read. The parents are also to blame. Parents should definitely have a right to say what their children can and cannot read, but they do not have the freedom to say what other children can or cannot read.
Now onto a new topic, the abundance of morals to find. That’s right I said find, while Huck goes on his adventure you can go on your own looking for the hidden meaning behind each corner. I’ll name a few to give you an example. Jump off the Bandwagon, be who you want to be, is what Huck teaches you right off the bat as he dodges ‘sivilization’ pushed onto him by a pair of well-meant but forceful old women. Next Pap Finn teaches the evils of alcohol, this drunkard of a father abuses Huck and is only interested in him when money’s involved, for buying more booze of course.
The Poop that Took a Pee is a fictional book written by Butters Stotch as a sequel to The Tale of Scrotie McBoogerballs in the episode "The Tale of Scrotie McBoogerballs". Although Cartman, Stan, Kyle and Kenny wrote The Tale of Scrotie McBoogerballs, in an effort to write a truly vulgar book worthy of being banned by parents and schools, the boys were afraid of being punished for their work and instead claimed it had been written by Butters. Despite the fact the book was written as nothing more that vulgarity for the sake of being vulgar, readers seem to over-analyze the book, claiming that it has deeper meaning than the boys intended. The book's disturbing subject matter however still causes the reader to vomit before even getting past the first sentence of the first paragraph of the first chapter. Due to the popularity of the first book, Butters proceeded to write a sequel to the story, The Poop That Took a Pee.
Journal 14-Famous Lincoln Civil War Speech & “Sivilizing Huck Finn” While I was reading Sutton’s article, I remembered Mrs. Phillips saying how that the regular’s English class just could not grasp that Mark Twain’s The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is in fact not racist. Apparently Sutton had not reached the sophomore honors English class level yet either, which is probably not the best, seeing he is a book critic and has the ability to edit, or in my terms ‘butcher’, books to his liking. If he had seen Twain’s purpose-to make the book as close to real life and society as possible to really emphasize the satire traits, Sutton might not have been so disgusted. It actually annoys me that he would change the whole book, and all of its
“ I knowed he was white inside (40). Huck states that though Jim is African American, he has intellectual thoughts and a lack of education does not change the way Jim thinks and cares. “Jim was most ruined, for a servant because he got stuck up on account of having seen the devil and been rode by witches.” (9).Most people judged Jim, not only because of the color of his skin, but the fact that he spoke differently then white folk. In The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn Jim continues to make intelligent thoughts and problems to the pairs sticky situations and proves to the reader that the southern stereotypes in the 1800’s were racist and
And then she was still, for Lennie had broken her neck”(100). And so, she was dead. Well, this quote “I don't like curley. He ain't a nice fella” clearly means that Curley was rude and not nice to his wife. She did not have a lot of privileges like she couldn’t talk to anyone else but Curley because Curley would get mad.
When she drew it away, it trailed a long silver thread of saliva. “Your fathers no better than the ******* and trash he works for!” (Lee 117) 1. (analysis)This quote said by Mrs. Dubose towards Jem and Scout shows how racists she is. Mrs. Dubose and most of the towns people dislike the Finches because Atticus is a white man defending a black man. Jem and Scout stats to become aware that all this is caused by segregation.
‘The NAACP’s campaigns in the years 1945 to 1953 were a failure because they did not bring about racial equality. ‘How far do you agree with this view? The NAACP’s campaigns were failures, this being because, while yes they won court cases such as Morgan v Virginia, or Smith v Allwright, and yes they successfully boycotted specific areas for reasons relating to segregation, nothing had changed. Segregation was still happening despite all the new laws that were created making segregation illegal. In 1944, a black lady by the name of Irene Morgan was fined $100 on an interstate bus for refusing to give up her seat for a white man, and thus took her case, with the help of the NAACP (National Association in the Advancement of Coloured People) to the Supreme Court.
Because he did this without parliaments approval parliament got angry. In the beginning the people used to pay at least 97.6% of ship money but by the time it was 1639 no one really cared and only 20% paid. A man called John Hampden stood up to the king and refused to pay ship money, Hampden was put on a trial and found guilty. But everyone else thought he was a hero. In 1637 the Scottish were told by Charles they had to use a new prayer book for their church but the Scottish didn't want to and got angry so they decided to rebel against him.
To me, there should be no difference when an African American should say the word to when they read it or hear it, no matter who is saying it. I do believe that if Mark Twain were African American there would be little to no controversy surrounding the use of that word in this book. Paul Butler said, “Mom said, about the perpetrators, “You just want to say ‘those dumb niggers’ but you don’t because there are white people in the room.” (Butler) This double standard seems so absurd because in this article this man goes off about how he felt uncomfortable and discriminated when this word was said but then turns around and agrees with his mother (who said the above quote). I would completely support any African American that said I do not use this word when talking to anyone, but more times than not, that is not the case. I would have no desire to use, “the N-word” but to say that only one race is able to say the word is discriminating the other races when you think about it.
