The parent might have thought the book was bad but others did not so it just stayed at challenged. While banned books is when the attempt is followed up. This is the removal of the book. So when whoever tried to ban the book got others to agree with them and the banning fell-through. (About Banned and Challenged Books.)
One of the numerous examples was David McCullough's biography of Harry Truman and Charles Dickens's Oliver Twist. Of course these books are two different text and you wouldn't read them the same way. The biography has text which is made for you to believe every word. If David decide to put false statements about Harry Truman, not only would his biography be invalid; it would also lose its genre as a biography. While in Dickens's Oliver Twist we know that what were reading isn't entirely true.
Every word in a book brings out a different effect or emotion, if a sentence is missing this word the effectiveness of the sentence is weakened. In the book The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain uses the word “nigger” over 200 times in a book of 293, that’s almost the work “nigger” on every page. But this word makes a strong statement in this story and is needed to tell the story with it’s full meaning. So why is it that people want to ban this book from schools? Is it really just because of this word?
I knew the story had to be told. Not to transmit an experience is to betray it”(1) People would read what he wrote down and think about it. It usually comes the illusion after civilization but after reading it people might rethink about it. The impact on literacy is to let people consider what had happened with more points of view. Even though it is just Wiesel’s duty to write it down, the literacy may change people’s mind.
However, by presenting both sides of the argument one can understand the reasons why it shouldn’t be read and why it should be read. The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, should not be read because of the racist, harsh, and critical language in the book. However, it should be read because it helps teach personal morals and judgments, as well as important themes like friendship or love. You can never “candy-coat” material to protect teens from reading such material. Sooner or later they will have to find out.
It’s possible it will cause many problems and possibly another recession. Maybe even some wars over the states wanting to split away from the United States so they can be their own country. It takes a long time to write something like the Constitution. That is a part of history that we all learn they just cannot make it seem like it never existed or change it would just not make any sense to me. I am not saying just get rid of it completely but we all have learned about the Constitution, the Declaration of Independence, and the Articles of Confederation in history classes growing up and why they are so important to us.
The first and obvious reason is that the book takes place in a pro-communist setting. The book may have been trying to prove a point, but it was still enough to offend many. The book is also sexually explicit, so it is easy to see why parents may want to “protect” their children from the idea of sex and that it should not be thought of in the way George Orwell writes about it. The most interesting reason for the ban of 1984 was the fact that it reminded people of what is like in the United States today. It has made people uncomfortable to think that what is being described in this chilling novel reminds them of what they see outside their own windows, with the fact that humans are constantly on watch and there is practically no way to keep anything hidden.
Simply just avoid the statue. The same goes with books. If you don’t like a book, such as The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn because of the strong racial view against African Americans, then don’t read the book. In this essay the writer explores the ideas of what I just stated in the above paragraph and it makes total sense. The
Education should be more careful when using this book to teach their students. The Adventures of HuckleBerry Finn should not be changed because it is not a racist novel. Many people find the N-word offensive, but the setting of the story was meant to be that way. The setting is placed near the Mississippi River. Back then, slaves were still owned and without the N-word, the harshness would be gone.
Individuals have also made good arguments about the negative outcome that racial profiling might bring to our society. Obviously it has led the dominant race to have superiority to the minorities – racial discrimination. James Zogby, the president of the Arab-American Institute have made a point that he have seen a lot of dark skinned people being searched and treated with humiliation, which is really wrong – Racial Relations. David Harris, a writer and Professor at Toledo College, have already written a couple of books about racial profiling. He states that law enforcers think that they would be more accurate in targeting a suspicious group, but in reality, what happens is the total opposite wherein officials have inaccurate results in targeting the suspect—Race Relations.
